GCSE students celebrate excellent results
Year 11 pupils celebrating an excellent set of GCSE results
A few days on from announcing excellent A-Levels, TPS students have achieved an outstanding set of GCSE results.
For the second year in a row, students’ grades are the result of teacher assessments – following a mixture of attending live lessons from home and learning in the classroom. 99.8% of the grades achieved at TPS were between Grade 9 - 4, compared to a national average of 77.1%, and 63.1% of GCSEs achieved at Grade 9 - 7 was 63.1%, compared to 28.9% nationally.
Individual successes include identical twins Danielle and Gabrielle who both achieved ten Grade 9s in their GCSEs. They will move up to study in the Sixth Form from September, where Danielle will study Biology, Chemistry and Psychology, and Gabrielle will study Biology, Chemistry and Philosophy and Ethics.
Additional achievements also include Sam Patel-Espin who has been awarded seven GCSEs at Grade 9 and three at Grade 8. Congratulations also go to Ben Meadows who achieved five Grade 9s, four Grade 8s and one Grade 7, Oscar Viner who received four Grade 9s and six Grade 8s, Georgia Longworth who received three Grade 9s and seven Grade 8s, and Emily Liu who has been awarded four Grade 9s, five Grade 8s and one Grade 7.
Headmaster, Adrian Meadows, commented on the students’ successes, saying: “Congratulations to every single one of the students today on their achievement. After another challenging year for our students, I am thrilled they have been awarded grades which truly reflect how hard they’ve worked both in School and at home. I am also very grateful to our excellent teaching staff who have shown great adaptability and worked tirelessly over the past 18 months to support pupils during long periods of remote learning. Thank you also to our parents for their support too. I look forward to our pupils returning to School in September to start their A Level courses with us.”
