GCSE Results 2019

At Twickenham School we celebrated an excellent set of GCSE results which show significant improvements across all subjects’. The number of students achieving a good pass in both English and Mathematics has increased from the previous year by 16% with student’ overall Attainment 8 improving by 5.4 points, significantly increasing on the 2018 results. Congratulations go to all students and in particular to Zoe Flashman who achieved five 9s and three 8s and Megan Hall who achieved two 9s & five 8s in all subjects including Maths and English. On average, Alfie Jones gained 3.8 grades and Sam Spiers 2.6 grades higher than expected in all subjects. Excellent results were obtained in English, Maths, Business, PE, Geography, Dance, Computer Science, German, Drama, Music and French. These excellent results reflect the hard work of students and the professional commitment of all of our teaching and support staff at Twickenham School. As a school, we have met and exceeded some challenging targets for this cohort of students, and I am very pleased that so many of our class of 2018-19 will now progress to further education with real confidence and a tremendous sense of achievement. We are delighted that our intake for Year 7 has increased by more than 50% and we hope that these students will be inspired to achieve their best by this excellent set of results. I am sure that staff would want to thank our families too, as they have been so supportive yet again throughout the long examination season. The governors and I would like to send the warmest of congratulations to all our Year 11 students. Ms Ruse Headteacher

Students visit Downing Street

TWO Twickenham schoolboys visited Ten Downing Street as a thank you for helping to guide the Prime Minister’s private plane during a work experience placement at Heathrow airport. The Richmond and Twickenham times ran a story on Twickenham School students Sam Newbold and Jack Brown after they marshalled a Royal Airforce plane carrying Theresa May in December. The story was seen by an advisor to the PMs who contact the school to invite the pair on a tour of Number 10 in recognition of their efforts. Sam and Jack, both 14, said the highlight was getting the chance to sit around the cabinet of ce and sitting in the Prime Ministers chair. Jack, from Whitton, said: “You really had to make an effort to take it all in because you know you would not get the opportunity to do it again. “Sitting around the cabinet table was a real highlight because you could picture all those famous politicians who had sat there before. You got a real sense of history. “We say in the Prime Minsters chair which had been sat on by Winston Churchill. That gave me goose bumps, it was incredible. Sam, also from Whitton, said: “There is so much history in the rooms we visited and so many stories behind everything. “The person who showed us around new everything about the house and so was able to tell us what happened there. “It is strange to think that all of this came from us being on works experience at the airport and helping the Prime Minsters land her plane.
