We are immensely proud of our students’ success at GCSE 2016 as our they have achieved results above the national average (Rastrick students achieved 78% A* – C grades, the national average being 69.5%). This is especially commendable as we are a non-selective grammar school, giving all pupils the opportunity to achieve at GCSE. At Rastrick we enter pupils who might have struggled in main stream education, or have special educational needs. Our aim is for all pupils to reach their potential, make progress and achieve the highest grade level possible.
