Examination Success
Our students perform superbly well in their GCSE examinations every year. Our attainment scores are very high, placing Ryedale School amongst the highest attaining schools in the country. Academic achievement for all learners, regardless of prior attainment, gender, SEND and pupil premium status, exceeds the national average.
We are especially proud of the progress all students make in our school. Our Progress 8 score, a measure which attempts to capture how much a secondary school raises the attainment of its students from SATs in Year 6 to GCSEs in Year 11, is outstanding. We have scored ‘well-above average’ (the highest category) every year since the introduction of this measure in 2016. We are typically ranked in the top 10% of all state schools in England.
