Rainhill High School has achieved the highest Progress 8 score of all high schools in St Helens and Knowsley placing the school in the top 25 per cent of schools across the entire Liverpool City Region (including grammar schools).
The Department for Education performance tables for schools in England have been published. They include the new progress 8 measure with a focus on the best 8 GCSE results including English and maths and A level progress scores. Rainhill High School is delighted to confirm that it has improved outcomes again in 2017 for its students both at GCSE and A Level.
Rainhill 6th Form is also delighted to announce that it is the highest performing school based 6th form for A levels in the area, performing above other students nationally with similar GCSE starting points. In addition to this, those studying applied and technical courses perform well above other similar students nationally.
The results for all schools include the more demanding 9-1 GCSE grades in English and Maths and the more demanding A level specifications; both were examined for the first time in 2017. Despite these challenges Rainhill High school continues to improve its performance year on year.
Mr John Pout, Executive Principal said: “These results are testament to the hard work, effort and commitment of the students throughout their time with us. The teachers and support staff do an outstanding job – we are very proud of them all and will continue to make sure that the time students spend with us is enjoyable, rewarding and leads onto great things in their future.”
