Our pupils have built upon their prior success at GCSE in 2016 and we commend them for their hard work and success. These are the best AS results for Rainey Endowed School pupils over the past number of years. The demanding nature of our society for achievement and success is met squarely and directly by all those from Rainey Endowed School.
