It has been another superb year for sixth formers at the Rochester Math School. The 198 Year 13 students who collected their results enjoyed enormous success.
- 25.8% of all grades awarded were at A*, up from 15% in 2019 (when exams last went ahead).
- 56.9% of all grades awarded were at A* and A level, up from 40% in 2019, while 79.8% of all grades secured by these senior students were at A*-B level.
- The average points per subject, a measure of the typical grade per A level, is 45.28, the highest ever achieved by students at the school and equates to a B+ grade.
- 22 students gained 3 or 4 A* grades. Remarkably, 52 students (26% of the year group) avoided any grade lower than a B.
- A key benchmark is the proportion of students gaining at least AAB in two facilitating subjects, which this year is 40% of Year 13, up 14% on the 2019 level of 26%.
The Russell Group and Oxbridge university hopefuls from the school had particular cause for celebration.

Principal Eliot Hodges said “I am delighted for all our students. They, together with their teachers, have worked really hard and it has paid off. They are a great group of young people who will now move on with confidence to the next stage in their lives”.
Chair of Governors Steve Brightman said “Once again the students of the Math have produced a set of results unequalled in recent years, despite the challenges they faced”.
