The Acting Headmaster, Mr Richard Clingan, described the results as, “These results represent a lot of hard work put in by pupils as they emerge from the impact of the pandemic and a fitting reward for their time at RSD. Congratulations to them all. The educational fallout from the pandemic has had a major impact on pupils over their time in Sixth Form and the pupils dealt with this challenge and worked with real commitment and determination with guidance from their teachers and support from home. In difficult circumstances, they persevered and have achieved so many good outcomes. The partnership between school and home is a key factor in allowing young people to learn and be successful. I would like to express my gratitude to teaching colleagues and parents for the ongoing support they have given to pupils and their role in pupils’ success. We are delighted that this group of young people have done so well and have opened up so many opportunities for their future.”
