Rainhill’s Headteacher said:
“I am so proud
of our students and their achievements. This is down to the hard work and
dedication of the students and staff at the school. The support from parents has
been fantastic once again and we simply could not achieve results like this
without their support. This year we have students who have secured places at Britain’s
most prestigious Universities including Oxford, St Andrew’s and Warwick. Many
other students are going to Russell group Universities to study their degrees. We
are very proud of them all and wish them every success for the future”.
