Headteacher’s Newsletter – Friday 1st December 2023
Outstanding academic attainment has long been one of the pillars of the School’s success, and this has been consistently borne out by our excellent public examination results, which regularly place us among the top schools in the country in the league tables. Our students consistently achieve outstanding A Level and GCSE results. In 2019 and 2020 we achieved record highest numbers of A* grades at A Level. As a result of these excellent performances, most students are accepted into their chosen universities or courses.
Congratulations to our fantastic Year 13 students who have achieved superb grades in their A Level results this year. Coming on the back of disruption from Covid, and considering these were the first proper public exams that our students have taken, (having not taking exams for their GCSEs), this represents an outstanding achievement. Even though the Government have raised grade boundaries back to the 2019 standard, approximately 87% of grades awarded at Tiffin were at the highest grades of A*-B, significantly better than our 2019 results. We congratulate our students. Whatever their grades and whether they are progressing to University or following other paths, we wish them every success for the future.
Many congratulations to our Year 11 students who have achieved a fantastic set of GCSE grades. Approximately 81% of grades were awarded at the highest grades of 7-9 in 2023. In the year when the Government are trying to align results and grade boundaries back to 2019, Tiffin’s grades are nearly 10% higher than the 2019 results. Indeed 2023 results are not only better than 2019, they are better than all the years pre-pandemic going back to 2011.
We congratulate all the students, and wish them the very best for wherever they are going on to.
