Tettenhall College is delighted with today’s set of GCSE results, which have seen a significant increase in grades when compared with the last set of formal examinations in 2019.
Moreover, the examination results represent a five year high for the College, demonstrating continued academic achievement, especially when taken alongside the excellent A Level successes seen last week.
The College saw more than a 10% uplift in the highest grades awarded (9-7) compared with 2019, with some standout performances including Modern Foreign Languages (French and Spanish) where 100% of pupils gained strong passes between 9 – 5, and 100% of Religious Studies pupils gaining 9 – 8 grades.
Headmaster Mr McAllister said, “Over the last three years, the world has been fraught with disruption, uncertainty and stress, most especially for our young learners. However, here at Tettenhall College I am so proud of the way that our school has risen to face these challenges head on, providing consistent and high quality teaching and learning for all. Now we have returned to formal examinations, our pupils and their excellent teachers have demonstrated even greater examination success, building further on the achievements of previous years. We are excited to see what this cohort of pupils will now go on to achieve as they progress onwards this September”.
The College was also very proud to see such excellent HPQ (Higher Project Qualification) results. This research based qualification has been taken up to two years early by many of the Tettenhall pupils, as part of the Scholars’ Programme. To see so many secure top grades, well ahead of their GCSEs, is outstanding.
