Twickenham School Results Day 2018

TWICKENHAM School celebrated an improvement in results as a clutch of students scored top grades in their GCSESs. The school saw a spike in results in core subjects such as English and maths and in overall attainment, following the publication of results today. Today, students spoke of their pride with their despite new national grading systems and broader following an anxious summer wait. Dharvi Jayaprasat, from Twickenham, revised for two hours a day to make sure she secured the grades to get on to a course at Kingston College. She said: “These results make me believe I can do so much now. It was hard sometimes. I’m just happy with these grades.” “Thanks to support from this school I can now do my art and design course at Kingston College. I am very excited.” After a partial introduction last year, almost all GCSEs are graded from 1 to 9, with the former A* grade split into the 7, 8 and 9 grades. Thomas Darcy, from Isleworth, in Hounslow, scored all 8s and 9s, equivalent to A* or A, , to secure a place to study A-levels in English, geography and classical civilisations. He said: “It was a long, apprehensive wait the whole summer, hoping my grades would be good. “This is just the culmination of that whole wait - but I am happy with this. “For anyone to get any good grades it takes a lot of work, and a lot of it is down to the teachers, who gave up their own time to hold extra classes after school. “The changes to the GCSEs nationally made it harder, which makes us even prouder.” Headteacher Assal Ruse said: Well done to all our students. Particular mentions must go to the many students who achieved the highest Attainment 8 points with an average grade 8+. This is a huge achievement. “My thanks to our staff who have worked incredibly hard teaching the new GCSEs and ensuring that so many students did as they well as they did. “We have seen an improvement but there is still much work to be done. We will continue to work hard for our students.”   Examination-results

Improved New GCSE Results for Twickenham School

Improved New GCSE Results for Twickenham School Twickenham School Year 11 students have achieved better in their GCSEs. Whilst there is no direct comparison with previous year’s results because all of the examinations are new and English and mathematics are graded 1-9 instead of A*-G it is clear that students have done better than last year in these tough new examinations. 60% of students gained a grade 4+ in English and mathematics and 55% of students achieved 5 GCSEs at A*-C (4+ in English and mathematics).  The DfE have made clear that there will be very few Grade 9s awarded in English and maths yet we were very pleased to see 3 students (all in maths) achieved this new benchmark. Particular mention should go to: Daniel Clouter, Ludmilla Branda and Sidney Thomas who all achieved a grade 9 in Mathematics Hannah McLelland 7 A*-As Ludmilla Branda 7 A*-As Zachhary Philippou 7 A*- As Headteacher, Assal Ruse, said, “I am delighted for the students and staff who have worked incredibly hard to achieve these results with all new examinations.  It has been a tough two years for all schools teaching new specifications and not always with access to new practice papers or grade boundaries.  As such I am happy the school has enabled the students to do as well as they did and be able to access the next stage of their education with the results they needed. These 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 would want to thank our families too, as they have been so supportive yet again throughout the long examination season.
