Continued academic success for RGS students: GCSE Results 2021

 

RGS students – community volunteers, charity fundraisers, cadets, artists, actors, team-mates, debaters, mentors and great friends – these young people can now add life-changing GCSE grades to their long list of accomplishments and personal qualities. They have overcome such obstacles but have done so with smiles, determination, dignity and a commitment to help others wherever they can from raising money to supporting the food bank, from donating laptops to volunteering locally and so much more.

Reigate Grammar School is delighted these super young people now have the best GCSE results in the school’s long history with record results. This follows on from record breaking A Level results earlier in the week for our Upper Sixth Form leavers where 97% of students progressed to world-class universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, Princeton, medical school or Russell Group universities.

Headmaster, Mr Shaun Fenton remarked,

“I am always impressed by these amazing students. They have risen to the challenges and exemplified a carpe diem approach to life. They embraced new opportunities over the last eighteen months with an undefeatable “can-do” approach and they have combined their studies with a wide range of charitable, partnership, environmental and extra-curricular activities. A rounded RGS education is not just about results: it is about being qualified to make a positive difference in the world.”

Students from RGS and some joining us from other schools will now continue their studies in the new award-winning RGS Sixth Form building – the Harrison Centre – to learn more about themselves and the world.

Mr Fenton added,

“I would like to extend my thanks to the parents for supporting these wonderful young adults. The students have shown determination and resilience and I would like to thank parents for their support and encouragement. With the backing of parents, as well as the care and academic expertise of our teaching staff, Reigatians have shone in all areas of the curriculum and beyond.”
