RMS girls today celebrated another year of 100% A Level and BTEC passes, with many securing top grades and the majority of students heading off to their first-choice university.
At RMS we prepare students for over thirty subjects, and the breadth of our academic embrace is also reflected in the range and variety of university destinations and courses. RMS girls will be studying 33 different courses at over 30 universities, including Exeter, York, UCL and St George’s, University of London.
Lots of smiles and envelopes at @RMSforGirls this morning, as well as coffee and pastries of course! #alevelresultsday #alevelresults2019 ✉️ ☕️ pic.twitter.com/hBPT4hmJFn

Particular successes at department level included Mathematics, Chemistry, French, English Literature, Psychology, Sociology, Politics, History and Religious Studies. This cohort of students also celebrated another superb crop of EPQ – Extended Project Qualification – grades with over 75% pupils achieving an A or A* grade.
Headmaster, Kevin Carson, said:
I am, as ever, delighted that our students have been rewarded with great grades and excellent university places after many months and indeed years of hard work. RMS girls do so much to develop their talent and character here, and I know that this group of students are well prepared to prosper both at university and in life beyond.
Head of Sixth Form, Clare Freeman added:
I am very proud of all that the students have achieved. It was lovely to see so many delighted students and parents this morning who are now looking forward to the next stage of their lives, be that studying Medicine at the University of Liverpool, or starting an Apprenticeship in Early Years education. It is clear once again from the range of courses and future plans that RMS really does help each individual plan and develop their own personal journey.
Of particular note, one in four girls moving on to university have opted for STEAM-based courses ranging from Biotechnology and Aeronautical Engineering to Medicine and Computer Science. A third of all places taken up were at Russell Group universities including Durham University and the University of Nottingham.
