Ruislip High School is delighted with the success of its second set of A-level results.

The majority of students at the school in Sidmouth Drive attained the grades necessary to progress to their chosen university, with 25% of students achieving the grades to secure an offer from a Russell Group university.

As nervous students waited to find their results this morning (Thursday, August 14), the school announced its first successful Oxbridge applicant from its second cohort of students. 

Emily Fishman has secured her place at Cambridge University. She will be reading History at Robinson College next term.

She said: "Getting into Cambridge has been a real challenge. It has been a rollercoaster of a year, but well worth it.

"I am very excited to have a place and I consider it to be a fantastic opportunity - all the hard work has certainly paid off."

A total of 73 per cent of students gained A8 - C grades with an overall pass rate of 100 per cent.

The average point score per student was 760.39.

The school saw an increase in the number of A* and A grades at A2 level, with 15% of students hitting the top grades in their A2 results.
