In its 10th successive year as an Outstanding College, Rooks Heath is delighted to welcome Parents and Carers to the Annual Prospective Parents’ Evening on Tuesday 16th September at 6.30 p.m. The evening follows a bumper crop of examination results in the summer. The College has sustained improvements shown in recent years and is particularly pleased with the performance in Mathematics. 40 A*/A grades were achieved in Mathematics which was 21% of the cohort. A further 40 children achieved a Grade B. 71% of the cohort achieved A*-C. In addition to this 42.5% of those entered also achieved A*/A in Further Maths, including Milan who achieved A* with distinction as well as a further 8 A* and 3 A grades.
A*/A grades were also achieved in many other subjects. 19 students gained 7 A*/A or more. One student Vinooja achieved 13 A*/A including an A* for Astronomy which she studied in addition to her other subjects. Abdul achieved a D* (equivalent to 4 A*), 5 A* and 5 A grades. Lana, Alina and Shefali also achieved top marks gaining 11 or more A*/A grades. All these students have stayed on at Rooks Heath to join our thriving Sixth Form.
To cement its excellent reputation as a totally inclusive school, every single student left the College with a qualification and only one student did not achieve 5 A*- G qualifications.
A Level results were also very encouraging, with 100% of students gaining 3 A2 A*-E grades. Many students achieved the top grade in their subjects. Nitin, in particular, made great progress and gained a place at King’s College London to study Computer Science. All of our students who wanted to go to university got an offer whilst a few others opted to take a gap year to travel or gain work experience.
Sustained improvement has seen a dramatic increase in our student numbers, and the Autumn Term has started with a huge rise in numbers. The new cohort in Year 7 is up 30% and our Post 16 numbers have risen dramatically (100% in the past two years) with well over 220 students enrolled for Post 16 courses, which reflects the undoubted success of our provision.
