Posted: 13th August 2020

Today, Tettenhall College is celebrating excellent A level results.

Headmaster, Mr McAllister commented, ”This academic year has been like no other. It has presented challenges that none of us could have foreseen. Yet today, I am so proud of the students and teaching staff who have secured such an outstanding set of results. Not only do these results allow our young people to pursue the next stage of their academic careers at some of the very best universities; this is where Tettenhall College’s teachers truly know their students. Their grades were significantly in line with our teachers’ expectations. This demonstrates that the College’s personalised approach to knowing each individual student has such fundamental value.”

Our A level students celebrated their success with over a quarter of students securing grades at A* and A, 55% achieving A* to B grades and 77% gaining A* to C grades. Deputy Head Mrs Samra said, “This is a true testament to all of our students for their continued efforts and adaptability throughout this time. Delivering a full curriculum digitally with live teacher led lessons has been something that we are so proud to have done for all our students.”
