The Headmaster, Dr David Burnett, described the results as,
“A reflection of the hard work pupils have put in to their studies throughout their time at RSD. The pupils deserve a great deal of praise for the commitment and determination they have shown.”
Dr Burnett explained that the pupils’ high academic achievements were a reflection of the School’s broader ethos.
“One of the most interesting aspects is that the pupils who have scored so highly in their examinations have also contributed so much else to school life, in sports, music, drama and a host of other activities, often taking a lead role. They have had to organise their time and sort outproblemsalong the way. As individuals they have matured and, perhaps, been better equipped to handle the pressures of examinations.”
He also emphasised the role played by teachers and parents in supporting the pupils.
“The partnership between school and home is a key factor in allowing young people to thrive and learn. I would wish to pass on my thanks to all my teaching colleagues and to parents for the support they have given to pupils and my congratulations for the role they have played in the pupils’ success.”
