This year we have celebrated our Year 11 cohort who have achieved a stellar set of exam results, showcasing their hard work and dedication throughout their academic journey. Despite GCSE grades falling back to 2019 standards nationally, the achievement of our pupils has remained very high and significantly above the national average.
37% of all our pupils’ results were at Grade 7 or above, significantly above the national figure of 22%. Furthermore, 87% of pupils achieved Grades 4-9 in both English and Mathematics, with 83% of all grades being at Grade 4 or above. Nationally this figure stands at just 68%.
14 pupils (8%) achieved Grade 8 or 9 in eight or more subjects, whilst special mention must go to Sophie and Tim, who join a select group of 125 pupils nationally who achieved grade 9s in all of their 10+ subjects.
A special mention to our Ukrainian students who joined us in Year 10 and worked tirelessly in an unfamiliar system having come under such unimaginable traumatic circumstances. Despite this, they have achieved an impressive set of GCSEs. Full credit to their courage, determination, and desire to better themselves. Both students are now set for success in their ongoing journey and we want to particularly commend Mariia and Yegor on embracing life at TKA.
It was fantastic to celebrate the hard work and successes of our wonderful Year 13 cohort who received a record number of offers from prestigious Russell Group Universities this year.
Our students sat nearly 300 A Level qualifications between them and 56% of these were grades A*- B, well above the national average of 52.7%. Of these, 10% achieved 3 or more A and A* grades.
Our University applicants have been delighted with their results. Outstanding grades have facilitated access to top universities with particularly strong performances within our STEM cohort:
Themis (A*A*A*A*) Computing - Imperial College London
Clara (A*A*A*A) Physics with Astrophysics - King’s College London
Luke (A*A*A*A) Mathematics - Warwick
Ben (AAA) Computer Science - Newcastle
Abrielle (AAA) Anatomy - Glasgow
Josh (A*A*A) Marine Biology - Swansea
We were also delighted for Arya (A*AAA), our first student to secure a place studying Law at Queen’s College, Oxford University.
Eiliya’s exam success has also enabled him to take up his highly competitive place on Deloitte’s degree apprenticeship programme, something we are incredibly proud of.
This remarkable cohort faced significant disruption to their time in secondary school due to the pandemic. They have shown incredible grit and with the support of friends, family and staff, have shown they are capable of great things.
We are incredibly proud of all they have achieved.
If you wish to compare the performance of the school with other schools locally and nationally you can access the Government Performance Measures Website using the following link.
Given the uneven impact of the pandemic on school and college performance data, the government has said that you should not make direct comparisons between the performance data for one school or college and another, or to data from previous years.
