Headteacher, Craig Martin, said “I am delighted as headteacher for the class of 2019. This year’s outcomes include some extraordinary results for our students. We have as a school quadrupled the number of 9s achieved, which represents the highest possible grades in the reformed, tougher GCSEs.
Three in every four students at Redruth achieved a pass, grade 4(C) in each of the core subjects of Maths, English and at least two sciences. Our well balanced curriculum means there were equally impressive results in the creative arts, languages, technology, humanities, sport and vocational studies.
I am, as head, delighted that our students have not only reached their potential but often exceeded it in terms of outcomes. All students from all abilities and with all different paths deserve mention and congratulations whether they are heading for further education, apprenticeships or A levels. Destinations include music college, an international swim academy, marine school, the Army, performing arts college, International Baccalaureate, engineering and a wide mix of A levels. Apprenticeships include construction, electrician, accountancy, hospitality, health and social care and sports coaching.
Our school prides itself on an all-round education and whilst reaching potential is an important part, so too is the friendship, opportunities, responsibilities, respect and sheer enjoyment which I trust this group have enjoyed and now carry on to their next stage. They have, as a group, worked extremely hard and been a credit to the school, their parents/ carers and the community. It is great to see them fulfilling their potential and I wish them well in the next stage of their lives.
Thanks to our students, staff and parents/ carers for making the school what it is: a great school in the heart of its community."
