Following on from the excellent ‘A’ level and Level 3 BTEC results last week that enabled students to go onto universities of their choice or take up apprenticeships there has been yet more positive news for the GCSE students at TBS.
Hard work and determination has paid off for students who have shown that they have adapted to the new style of GCSE exams. In Maths 77% of students passed with a grade 4 or better with 47% gaining a grade 5 or better. In English 83% passed with grade 4 or better while 65% gaining grade 5 or better.
The percentage of student is achieving 5 9–4 GCSE grades including English and Maths is 66%, while for grades 9-5 the figure is 41%. These headline figures do not tell the whole story but they are a marked improvement on last year’s results and sign post lots of individual successes.
John Fletcher Head Teacher said ‘Today shows what hard work, dedication and belief can deliver. I would like to congratulate every student picking up his or her results today, examinations are never easy and during this turbulent time in the public examination system, it is a pleasure to see so many positive outcomes for individuals. The results show an overall improvement for the school. It is always important to remember that these results are about individual effort and determination, so well done to all.’
Some performance of note in terms of outcomes and progress are:
Aiden English Stephens, Dylan Berry, Sara Adallah, Leigh Christie, Evie Hall, Mark Hann, Imogen Hearne, Hammad Javed, Rachel Bradely, Jamine Brown, Daniel Stec, Molly Stevenson, Sadia Monia, Alex Upward and Lorna Judge.
