Richmond secondary students have achieved the second highest English Baccalaureate (EBacc) results in the country according to final figures released by the Department for Education last Thursday. The results also suggest the borough has made significant improvements in GCSE attainment over the past year.

However, the picture was mixed with the newer Academy Schools significantly under-performing the borough and national averages for GCSE attainment.

When it came to top marks in the borough, Waldergrave School for Girls continues to be a high achiever with 86% of Key Stage 4 pupils gaining A*-C grades in 5 or more subjects (including Maths and English). The school also topped the borough for the Baccalaureate with 64% achieving it.

Second in the GCSE results league table for the borough was Grey Court School in Richmond with 77% of pupils attaining top grades in 5 or more subjects, followed by Teddington School (74%), Christ's School in Richmond (73%) and Orleans Park School in Twickenham (70%).

Languishing at the bottom were the academies with 55% of Twickenham Academy students achieving the top grades in 5 or more GCSEs and Hampton Academy (46%). Both came in well below the national average of 61%.

Baccalaureate results roughly tracked GCSE results with Orleans Park School coming second (56%), Christ's School coming third (51%) and Twickenham Academy at 13%. The national average was 23%.

The English Baccalaureate was introduced as a performance measure in the 2010 performance tables. It is not a qualification in itself. The measure recognises where pupils have secured a C grade or better across a core of academic subjects – English, Maths, History or Geography, the sciences and a language.

Final results for the borough in 2013 show Richmond pupils have moved from 30th position to 13th for five or more A* to C GCSE grades (including English and Maths) and risen from seventh position to second in the country for the EBacc.
