A Level & BTEC Results Day 2023

Royal Russell is different by design.  We are a family school which values the things which make each of us distinctively brilliant.  Our commitment to each other is to help every member of our community strive for their vision of success – to take a wider view of what their personal ambitions are and it has therefore been a pleasure to share results with our Year 13 pupils and parents today. 

In all that we do as a School, we aim to instil our Russellian values in all our young people. They are: ambitious, open, distinctive and courageous.  This amazing group of Year 13 pupils have had to cope with a huge amount of uncertainty as they undertook their first public examinations this year, with GCSE examinations for their cohort cancelled due to Covid. The results which they have achieved are testament to this cohort’s hard work and resilience and we could not be more proud.

The overall results are very strong from a high performing year group and individual success is evident at all levels of the ability range both within our A Level and our BTEC programmes. 

Congratulations go to all pupils, many will go on to study at some fantastic Universities including:

Anna - Sheffield to read Bioengineering 

Amber - Nottingham to read Pharmacy 

Arthur - Cambridge to read Linguistics 

Charlie - LSE to read Actuarial Sciences 

Charlotte - Warwick to read French and History 

Pak Hei - UCL to read Mechanical Engineering 

The UCAS outcomes are very encouraging, indicating the sound advice given to each individual candidate by the Sixth Form Team. Pupils will be moving on from Royal Russell to study a wide range of courses, including Architecture and Actuarial Science through to Economics (7 pupils), Law (4 pupils), Mechanical Engineering (3 pupils), Politics and International Relations (7 pupils) and Psychology (4 pupils).   

We also have a small number of pupils who will be joining apprenticeship schemes and directly entering employment, including Lewis who starts an apprenticeship with KPMG in October.

A summary of the cumulative % of grades awarded is shown below.  These grades include the A level equivalent grades achieved by our BTEC pupils.
