A level results

At RIC we'll do everything we can to help you get into your university of choice.

RIC’s exam results regularly match or exceed those of more highly selective private schools and local grammars, despite our broad ability intake.

We believe that our small teaching groups, regular testing and structured tutorial support are responsible for this.

In 2023 there were 322 entries at A level, 25% were graded A*/A with 74% graded A*-C. The top A* was achieved in subjects ranging from Chemistry, Fine Art and Maths to Psychology, English Literature and Photography.

Remarkably, the results included many students who joined to retake, had gained very low grades after completing year 12 elsewhere or had been denied entry to their chosen A level courses at other schools.

RIC is ranked in the top 2% in England for progress at A level.

GCSE Year 11 Results 

RIC is a non-selective school and students have historically joined us only for very short periods of time for their GCSE study, often for a year or even less. The results include those of high achieving students who secure a row of As and A*s and those for whom passing five at Grade C level represents an enormous achievement in the light of their previous educational record. After GCSEs at RIC students are well prepared to proceed either to our own sixth form or to the selective local grammar schools.

30% of the grades achieved by our students in 2023 fall between 9-7 (A*-A) with 84% of all grades at 9-4 (A*-C). This is a testament to the effort exhibited by our students and the excellent teaching provided by our dedicated staff team.

University destinations that are as diverse as our students

RIC students get into Russell group universities in impressive numbers each year but also to a broad range of universities and art colleges that fit their unique personalities and interests.

Our student destinations are always diverse reflecting the individual nature of our annual student cohort. They include students who have transferred for us for year 13, are on a one year A level retake programme or those on a fast track one year intensive course as well as those following conventional two year A level pathways. One of our students in 2021 turned down an offer from Cambridge University for Veterinary Science as she preferred the structure of the course at London's Royal Veterinary College! One of our highest performing one year students who achieved 3 A*s in one year from scratch in Geography, Mathematics and Chemistry and is following his interests in climate change and sustainability by opting for a BSc in Environmental Science at UEA. It’s not just university destinations that are celebrated. Some students have opted to go straight into the workplace, some follow apprenticeship schemes and one even recently joined the US Marines!
