Rendcombs new Headmaster, Roland Martin was given an impressive welcome gift this week, with 46% of the Schools GCSE papers graded at A* or A grades.


I was thrilled last week to see how well our A Level pupils had done this year, he commented but as you can imagine, I am overjoyed this week!


94% of GCSE papers at Rendcomb this year were awarded A*-C results with the A*-A percentage rising 11% on last year.


Mr Martin, who arrived at Rendcomb from Eton last week smiled, In many ways, these results are better than I was used to at my last School. There, it was very unusual for students to take more than 10 GCSEs; 61% of students at Rendcomb this year sat papers in 11 subjects making these results, and their teachers efforts, all the more remarkable.
