St Richard’s Exam Success

2022 GCSE Results


In what has been a challenging period of study for our Year 11, I am pleased to report that they have achieved outstanding outcomes that break all previous school records. This reflects not only their hard work and endeavours but their resilience in coping with interruptions to their education caused by Covid.


Headline figures celebrate 86% of the year group achieving grade 4 and above in the BASICs measure (English/Maths) and 74% achieving grade 5 and above, with 37% achieving grade 7 and above. These results compare favourably not only with 2019 results but the TAG and CAG results of 2020 and 2021. Of a 62% entry into the Ebacc qualification, 60% achieved grade 4 and above and 53% achieved grade 5 and above. The overall attainment score for the year group was 61, well above the target set.


All subjects performed really well with the number of grade 9s doubled since 2021 TAG results. Indeed, a third of the cohort achieved grade 9 in at least one subject and 37% of all grades were 7 and above.


Miss Cronin, Principal, expressed how delighted she was with the results and paid tribute to pupils, staff and parents/carers for working closely together to achieve such record breaking results. Our lovely young men and women are now ready for the next stage of their education with the skills, qualities and attributes, combined with academic achievement, to make a great success of the next stage of their lives. Congratulations to them all.
