Fantastic results from our Class of 2019
Thamesmead School Year 11 students, staff and parents are celebrating continued success at GCSE as they received their exam results today.
85% of students achieved a standard pass in Maths and English which means that they gained a 4 grade or higher in both subjects. This is an improvement of 5% on last year’s result.
57% of students achieved a strong pass in Maths and English which means that they gained a 5 grade or higher in both subjects.
83% achieved 5 GCSES or more graded at 4 or above, which is also an improvement on last year’s performance.
Almost a third of all GCSE exams sat by our students this year were graded 9-7.
The results have also seen a school record being broken, with James Norton achieving an amazing 11 grade 9s. Grace Cruise, Faye MacDonald and William Price achieved 6 grade 9s, while a number of students were successful in achieving 5 grade 9s. They were Lauren Corti, Alice Ditchburn, Sophie Evans, Scarlett Griffiths, Alice Webster and Zac Tarver.
Headteacher Phil Reeves said “We are celebrating the GCSE results our students have achieved this year which show a significant increase in the progress our students have made in their time at Thamesmead. We have seen improvements in our results for English, Maths and the majority of our subjects which suggests that our staff and students have got a good handle on the new GCSE qualifications that have been introduced in recent years. We are very proud of all the students have achieved in these exams and wish them the very best of luck as they move on to their new sixth forms, colleges and apprenticeships.”
