The Good Schools Guide 2015 Award for the Best Performance by Girls taking Music GCSE in an English Comprehensive School has been awarded to Thamesmead School. We have also received an Excellence Award for Boys taking Music GCSE.
Thamesmead School has been presented with this award by the Good Schools Guide for out-performing all other English schools in its category or displaying excellent performance. The prestigious annual awards, which are in their 8th year, are based on a detailed analysis of the most recent examination results, and are designed to highlight consistently good teaching.
‘We are absolutely delighted to be acknowledged in this way for our excellence in Music. We are sure it will inspire and encourage all pupils who are working towards their Music GCSE exam.’
Ralph Lucas, Editor of The Good Schools Guide, comments, ‘Our annual awards scheme is designed to give individual teachers and departments where teaching is at its very best the recognition they deserve’.
The Good Schools Guide Awards are based on a series of calculations which take into account relative popularity and performance of the subject, absolute performance, and percentage of pupils taking the subject.
