What a wonderful morning it has been here at Tettenhall College. Our Year 13 students have delivered an outstanding set of results that they, and their hard working teachers, should be extremely proud of.
Leading the way with a stellar 5 A* grades is Lujza Lukacova who is delighted to be pursuing her dream of Medicine. Also embarking on a degree in Medicine is Ruhaan Kakar (pictured) who secured A*, A, A and will now begin his studies at St Georges, University of London.
Head Prefect Nikhil Gill will now commence his degree in Law at Cardiff University having secured A, A, A*(Dist), whilst his fellow Head Prefect Anjeli Sunsoa is delighted to be heading to Birmingham University to study English Literature.
Our students have not only delivered a wonderful set of results that surpass those seen when formal examinations were last taken in 2019, they are also the highest level of public examination results in the last five years. Headmaster Mr McAllister said, “I could not be more proud of this year’s students, not only for weathering such uncertain times, but doing so with such commitment, determination and drive. This is a group of young people who we now proudly call Old Tettenhallians and who will make a real difference in the world that they will now help to shape”.
Deputy Head Prefect Chas Parker holds an offer from Warwick University to study Psychology whilst Boarder Osato Daniel will move to Keele University to pursue his degree in Radiography and Harry Lu will head to the University of Surrey to study Aerospace Engineering.
Mr Dan Matthews, Assistant Head Academic commented that, “We are particularly pleased to see outstanding successes in our Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) entries, with 60% of students securing A* – A grades. The EPQ forms a foundational part of the innovative Scholars’ Programme here at Tettenhall College. We introduced this programme across the whole Senior School three years ago, and it is now clearly delivering high levels of academic outcomes for such a large number of students, both formal scholars and those actively participating. It is a real and tangible example of the academic ambitions we are seeing our young people fulfil”.
It must also be noted that the Performing Arts department at Tettenhall continues to go from strength to strength. With their base in the historic Towers Theatre, the team saw 100% of students achieve either a Distinction* or Merit. Mr Gareth Howard, Director of Music said, “This really does demonstrate that any young person who is looking to pursue Performing Arts, should strongly consider Tettenhall College. To see two of our students, Arabella Yardley and Beatrice Gearba, go on to professional training through the conservatoire route, is tremendous. Well done everyone!”.Categories: Sixth Form Whole School
