Academic work is at the heart of what we do at Repton School. Our aim is to allow each pupil to develop his or her potential to the maximum. This means setting the highest academic expectations for each Reptonian, and then developing the systems to monitor and support each pupil’s individual progress. We believe that this allows pupils to achieve more than they could have imagined.
Reptonians continue to achieve consistent academic success, and we were once again delighted with the results achieved in external examinations by our pupils in 2014.
The 2014 A Level results achieved by our Upper Sixth pupils were very good: 23.6% of entries achieved an A* grade and over half the entries (56.3%) achieved A*A grades. These results should be viewed alongside the outstanding results in previous years. In Summer 2011 more than a quarter of entries (28%) achieved an A* grade, almost two-thirds of entries (65%) achieved A*A grades and 78% were graded A*AB. In Summer 2012, 18% of entries were graded A*, 60% achieved an A*A grades and a record 88% of entries were graded A*, A or B. This reflects the consistency in high standards that is the hallmark of the very best schools.
The 2014 GCSE results achieved by our O-Block (Year 11) pupils were excellent: 28.7% of GCSE entries by O-block were awarded an A* and 64.6% of GCSE entries achieved A*A. In 2012, 36% of GCSE entries by O-block were awarded an A* and a record 69% of GCSE entries achieved A*A
These headline figures show that Repton continues to achieve first class results throughout the pupil body, and across the wide range of subjects studied.
