What's Going On: GCSE Results

Congratulations to our class of 2021!

You had more disruption to your Key Stage 4 education than any other year group in Richard Lander School's history, yet you stayed strong, conscientious and positive throughout. 

We are so grateful for the way you set the example to younger students during the pandemic; meeting each new challenge with maturity and acceptance. 

It therefore comes as no surprise to us that you have achieved so well in your exam results! We are just sorry that we were not able to hand them to you in person. Nevertheless we are so proud of you - our highest achieving year group to date!

We wish you the best for all your future adventures and look forward to seeing you around Truro and welcoming you back in to school for visits. We always love to hear your news so please do stay in touch!

Many other students were delighted with the results they received and saw the fruits of their hard work open the necessary doors to their future plans. Most students are really looking forward to starting work on their A level courses or chosen career paths at Truro or Cornwall College next month.

Mr Mulcahy, Headteacher, said:
‘We are delighted with our GCSE results for 2019.  This is the result of 5 years’ hard work by students, supported by a wonderful staff team who always go the extra mile to support.
On behalf of staff and governors at Richard Lander School, may I congratulate our students on achieving such good grades.  Students should look forward with real confidence to college or work which lie ahead.  We wish them all the very best success and happiness for the future.’
