Royal Greenwich Trust School hits new heights with latest GCSE results

Following last week’s amazing year 13 results in which students secured record breaking results that saw 95% graduate to their first choice university, next came the school’s GCSE students. This is just the second Royal Greenwich Trust School cohort to sit GCSE examinations since it opened in 2017 and the students have achieved some impressive grades.

Successes and Awards

There have been some outstanding stories from across Year 11, including Isaac who joined from Heronsgate Primary and achieved 7 and above in all of his subjects. Of his time at the school, he said: “I must thank my teachers for providing all the experience I needed to get ready for the real exams. The preparation was invaluable.”

Also celebrating today is former Fossdale Primary School student Daisy, who opened her envelope to discover she had six grades above a 7. She said: “I have been inspired by so many things at the school like Science Week, poetry classes and the amazing trips we have been on.”

Daisy will be joining highflying year 13 RGTS students Manar and Rhyen, who have all been hand selected to join peers from across the borough at the Achieving Greatness in Greenwich Awards in September. Hosted by Councillors Anthony Okereke and Matt Morrow, the ceremony is to celebrate the educational excellence taking place across the Royal London Borough of Greenwich. Daisy has been selected for both her excellence and endeavour.

Another very happy student is Emmy, whose grades include seven subjects at 8 or above. She graduates from RGTS to join the London Academy of Excellence where she will be studying a range of maths and science related subjects. She has her sights set on being a mechanical engineer or an architect in the future.

Comments from the Headteacher

Speaking about her pride in today’s achievements, Headteacher Caroline Toye said: “Our students have once again proved what is possible at RGTS and it has been a pleasure to celebrate with them today. The platform they have given themselves will no doubt see them go on to achieve wonderful things in the future.”

 

“I want to thank all of the staff that have supported these students in gaining their well-deserved results. They have worked tirelessly to make sure our 2023 year 11 cohort were successful.”

“It is also lovely to see students who are enrolling on our specialist post-16 courses in Business Studies, Engineering or Civil Engineering.  We look forward to welcoming them back into our sixth form.”
