Examination results

Results group 2022 1 copy

At RIC we'll do everything we can to help you get into your university of choice.

RIC’s exam results regularly match or exceed those of more highly selective private schools and local grammars, despite our broad ability intake. 

We believe that our small teaching groups, regular testing and structured tutorial support are responsible for this.

A level 

In 2023 there were 322 entries at A level, 25% were graded A*/A with 74% graded A*-C. The top A* was achieved in subjects ranging from Chemistry, Fine Art and Maths to Psychology, English Literature and Photography. 

Remarkably, the results included many students who had had bumps along their academic journey and had to change direction. Some joined to retake, had gained very low grades after completing year 12 elsewhere or had been denied entry to their chosen A level courses at other schools.

RIC is ranked in the top 2% in England for progress at A level

RIC is a non-selective school and students have historically joined us only for very short periods of time for their GCSE study, often for a year or even less. The results include those of high achieving students who secure a row of As and A*s and those for whom passing five at Grade C level represents an enormous achievement in the light of their previous educational record. 

After GCSEs at RIC students are well prepared to find a fresh direction and proceed either to our own sixth form or to the selective local grammar schools.

30% of the grades achieved by our students in 2023 fall between 9-7 (A*-A) with 84% of all grades at 9-4 (A*-C).
