Twickenham School celebrates huge GCSE achievements in progress, attainment and whole school attendance

Posted on: 10/02/2023

This week Twickenham School was again reminded of the phenomenal achievements of both its outgoing year 11 and current students following the publication of Ofsted’s IDSR (a tool Ofsted inspectors use when preparing for and during inspection of a school to identify key areas of interest).

Despite the challenges of the last few years and students not having sat formal examinations since the age of 11, the school achieved an overall progress score of 0.4 which is both significantly above the national average and within the top 20% of schools for 2022.

Twickenham bet 010Science (value added), a measure of how much progress a child has made since joining, also came in significantly above national and in the highest 20% in 2022 at 0.5; meaning that students are achieving on average half a grade more by the time they leave school.

Excellent results were also seen in food technology with the average point score in the highest 20% in the country. For lower prior attainers, the story was hugely positive too with the EBacc element of Progress 8 and overall attainment significantly above national and in the highest 20% of schools across the country.

Following the highs of the summer, with overall grades across the board the highest ever seen, absence (a huge challenge nationwide post-pandemic) was also to be celebrated being within the lowest 20% of schools nationally – further testament to the strong values and high expectations held by the whole school community - staff, students and families!
