 “As usual, the day has been one of high emotion for us here at school”, said Chris Nuttall, Director of Sixth Form, “This has been an exceptional year group who have not only developed academically during their time here at Tarporley, but also personally, as individuals. Our Sixth Form students contribute so much to the life of the school and to the local community, and are frequently praised for their mature approach, their teamwork and their leadership. Today is just reward for all their hard work, supported by their families and the dedicated staff at the school. I would like to take this opportunity to wish them every success in their next pathway in life. We really will miss them all!”

Tarporley High School & Sixth Form College GCSE Results 2018

Following on from Tarporley High School’s outstanding A Level results last week, Tarporley’s Year 11 students have once again achieved excellent grades. 

This year marks the first year that students have completed the new GCSE qualifications in nearly all subjects, where the grading system spans from grade 9 (the highest grade) to grade 1 (the lowest).

With the newly designed grade 9, which recognises the very highest performing pupils, the outstanding school saw nearly 20% of the cohort achieve the very highest of grades (Grade 8 and Grade 9) which is equivalent to grade A* and A** respectively. 

Across all grades, a third achieved were impressively at grade 7 or higher (equivalent to an A grade) and over 80% were above the new grade 4 benchmark (equivalent to a grade C.)

Head Teacher Jason Lowe said “My congratulations go out to all our students who have shown such exceptional commitment to their studies. They have been an outstanding year group who have made many valuable contributions to the school. I wish them all the best for the future and look forward to welcoming many of them into our Sixth Form.

I would like to thank the families of our students for all the support they have given over the last five years.  My thanks also go to our passionate and dedicated staff who have worked extremely hard to enable all of our students to achieve.”
