Grading at GCSE and next steps: 

  • GCSE’s graded from 1 to 9 where a 4/5 is equivalent to the old C grade (pass)
  • Most students can achieve 7/8/9s at RHS at the end of Year 11
  • The entry criteria for the Sixth Form currently is 6 grade 6’s for 3 A levels
  • If a student achieves 6’s in Maths, English and Science then all A level courses are open to them
