Tettenhall College pupils were celebrating an excellent set of GCSE results today, with well over half of the grades awarded at A*-B or 9-6.
Headmaster David Williams praised the efforts of pupils against a background of significant change.
27 per cent of pupils achieved Grades A*/A or 7 to 9 and over 50 per cent of the cohort achieved nine or more grades A* to C or 9 to 4.
72 per cent of pupils achieved five or more including English, maths and English as an additional language (for international pupils).
There were standout performances from Orla Shipway with 5 A * 3 A 1-8 2-7, Aaron Jhooty with 3 A*, 4A, 1-8 and 2-7, Lewis Clarke 2 A* 5 A 1-9 2-7 and Amrita Clair with 1 A *. 7 A 1-7 1-6 1-5.
Mr Williams said: “Firstly, the pupils are to be congratulated on their efforts, especially in this year of significant changes in examination styles and grading systems. Tettenhall College welcomes pupils of all abilities, some of whom are also from overseas, so we are extremely pleased with all our results, which prove the value of our small class sizes.
“Our dedicated staff ensure each pupil fulfils his or her potential and I would also like to thank parents for their ongoing support.”
The GCSE successes follow on from last week’s A Level group who achieved 65% A*-B grades and 33% A*-A and contributed to the School’s growing reputation in the area and internationally.Categories: SENIOR SCHOOL
