Posted on: 24/08/2017Improved New GCSE Results for Twickenham SchoolImproved 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.
