This year our cohort of 38 students in Upper Sixth achieved outstanding results, the best the School has ever seen.
The percentage of grades this year at A* and A has increased to 69.33% (last year 60.23%) and the A* to B grades have increased from 81% to 90%. 36% of all grades are A*.
Points per candidate is over 466. This means that an average candidate at Ruthin School achieves A Level grades better than A*A*A* or AAAA.
All students have been placed at universities. 5 students this year will go to Cambridge University (2 will study Mathematics, 1 will study Mathematics with Physics, 1 will study Engineering and 1 will study Natural Sciences.)

Toby Belfield, Principal, commented: “Our A Level results, university successes and strong academic outcomes are the reasons why parents choose to send their children to Ruthin School. The School is expanding with an ever increasing number of young people wanting to be part of our success. We will see the pupil numbers in September increase from 230 to 280, the highest number in Ruthin School’s history. Of course, our students and staff understand the meaning of hard work – and it is this hard work, from all associated with Ruthin School, that produces these outstanding achievements. I am delighted with today’s success and congratulate all our young people who are now moving on to their next stage of education.”
