Students at Tonbridge Grammar School (TGS) are celebrating another year of excellent GCSE results in a year where, for the first time, all subjects are the reformed numeric graded GCSEs.
The top grade of 9 sits above the threshold for a traditional grade A* and is undoubtedly tough to achieve. 3 students achieved 9 in all of their GCSE subjects, with 14 students achieving 8 or 9 in all subjects and 50 achieving grade 7 or above across the board. Subject results show 36 students achieving grade 9 (21%) in Mathematics and 40 pupils (23%) in English (Language or Literature). With an average grade per entry of 7.4 over half (51%) of all GCSE results were at grade 8 and above and nearly three quarters (74%) at grade 7 and above.
Rosemary Joyce, Head Teacher, said: ‘Warmest congratulations to all our Year 11 students celebrating their outstanding GCSE results today. They should feel so very proud of their achievements which are testament to their hard work and commitment.
Congratulations also to our team of dedicated staff who have once again supported students to achieve such success.”
Students at TGS all study a broad core academic programme including English Language and Literature, Mathematics, three Sciences, a language and a humanities subject. Subject outcomes showed real strength across the board with over 80% of students in Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Latin, Geography, History and Design Technology achieving grades at 9, 8 or 7.
