Headteacher  Steve Evans is delighted that the school has just posted the best A level results in its history.

He said: “We have seen some real positives in the three sciences, as well as excellent results in art  -and textiles in particular.”

He attributed the students’ successes to the school’s introduction of tougher and more aspirational targets, along with better tracking of progress.

Annabel Collier achieved three A* in English language, geography and sociology and will go on to study sociology at Durham.

She said: “I am very, very pleased and happy for my friends as they have also got what they wanted.”

Another triple  A* student was Dennis Rimmer, who took maths, physics and chemistry.

He said: “You have to work hard, but the teachers have been there for me, and if I have not understood something, I have been able to get a little extra help.”

Freya Bottom achieved A*s in maths and physics and an A in biology.

A Level results day at Rastrick High School - Freya Bottom.
 

Since January she has studied every day, with revision getting more intense since Easter. She said: “It’s amazing, I didn’t expect these results, I got a B in maths and, without re-sitting it, I got it up to an A*.

“The revision was intensive, but it was worth all the hard work.”

Freya now goes on to study physics at Sheffield University and hopes to have a career in research.

Here are the results for Rastrick High School:
