The Royal Grammar School achieved another outstanding set of A Level results: the most common grade achieved by RGS students was the A* with 50.1% of all grades being the top, gold-star standard. 80.9% of all grades – or in total 334 grades – were awarded at A* or A. From a cohort of 129 students, 41 boys achieved 3 or more A*s: an incredible achievement in traditionally robust, rigorous subjects.
Headmaster, Dr Jon Cox, commented: “I could not be more impressed by the way our Class of 2022 have conducted themselves. Sitting high-stakes A Level examinations, after the significant succession of disruptions caused by the pandemic and having never experienced formal public examinations before, placed real demands on our students. Our boys have responded stoically and resolutely to each and every challenge. Their hard work, determination and resilience have been tested to the full and they have emerged with results of which they can all be rightly proud.”
“I would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to the phenomenal professionalism, inspiration and dedication of all the RGS staff who have done so much to prepare, support and reassure this particular year group. I am immensely proud of the spirit and sense of community at the RGS which allows our boys to continue to excel.”
