The pupils should feel a great sense of collective achievement – I hope that all pupils reflect on their hard work and look forward excitedly to a bright future. 

The results achieved by the pupils reflect the hard work they have put in to their studies at the School; particularly during the rigorous examination season during the Summer Term. They also reflect the expertise and dedication of the Royal Russell staff team, including all of the academic, administration, operations and support staff and, of course, the huge commitment of our Royal Russell parents and families.

Many of those I spoke to on results day were excitedly discussing the opportunities of the Sixth Form and were looking forward to joining their new academic courses in September.

I am always proud of our pupils, and whilst we congratulate them for the academic qualifications they have been awarded, I am even more proud to see them embody the Russellian values of open, ambitious, courageous and distinctive as they contribute both to our community and the wider world.

Congratulations to the Class of 2023, their families and friends.

Chris Hutchinson, Headmaster
