Results and Performance


Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the Department of Education suspended the KS4 and 5 Performance Tables.  The information and results you see below are not our most recent results, instead are those from 2019, the last year students’ education and exams were not effected by Covid-19.

Results for 2019 show students have made significantly more progress at GCSE this year. They are performing in line with similar students nationally. Significantly, the average grade achieved by students is one third of a grade higher than last year.

The progress of students in English and Maths in particular has seen significant improvement. This crucial measure underpins the opportunity for students to go on to courses of their choice at post-16. Almost one in two students gained strong passes (grade 5) in both English and Maths. This represents an improvement of more than ten percentage points on the number of students reaching this measure in 2018.

Ridgewood’s students have continued to excel at getting the prestigious top grades, especially grade 9. Overall, students secured 63 grade 9s, representing 4% of all grades. There were also an impressive 195 grade 8s. In total, 21% of all grades were 7-9. Two students gained an outstanding seven GCSEs at grade 9, and one in fourteen students got at least one grade 9.
