Headmaster since January 2017, Kevin Carson is delighted with the academic results produced by his first cohort of Year 13 students.

“I am very proud of what our students have achieved in their Year 13 examinations. Almost half of all grades attained are A*/A grades, which is testament to pupils’ hard work and to the dedication of our teaching staff. This cohort of pupils have experienced unprecedented reforms to A Levels, which makes our students’ achievements all the more pleasing. Our girls have exceeded their expectations, demonstrating why RMS consistently features in the top 10% of schools nationally for the value added to students’ results. Of course, academic achievement is just one measure of a student’s success and I am equally proud of everything that the Year 13s have achieved this year – in the leadership roles they have fulfilled, the charity work they have undertaken, and their many accomplishments on stage or on the sports field. I wish every one of our leavers continued success in the next stage of their education.”


Result highlights include:

  • 17% of grades were at the top level of A*, compared with a national average of 8%
  • 48% of grades were at A*/A grade compared with a national average of 26%


Stand-out subjects at A Level include:

  • Art 100% A*/A grade
  • Applied Business 85% A*/A grade
  • Further Maths 80% A*/A grade
  • History 70% A*/A grade

Additionally 72% of results for the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) were at A*/A grade.


Head of Sixth Form, Mrs Clare Freeman says:

“We wish all our Year 13 students well as they move on to the next stage in their education. The girls have been a fantastic year group, performing well academically at the same time as making a huge contribution to the life of the school. I am immensely proud of them all and hope they will return to RMS to share their future successes with us.”
