GCSE Results 2019
The Twyford Trust celebrated outstanding GCSE results which once again positioned its schools comfortably within the top 5% of schools in the country.
Outcomes at Twyford had improved on the previous year with students estimated to have achieved a progress-8 score of +0.9, indicating that students achieved grades which were, nearly 1 grade higher than the average within schools nationally.
49% of the exams sat were passed at the top grades of 7-9 (equivalent of A*-A in the previous system) and 93% achieved the pass grade of a 4 or above (previously a C-Grade).
Students picking up their examination results were exultant that the hard work of the past 5 years had paid off and put them in a strong position for enrolment onto post-16 courses.
13% of students gained 5 or more passes at the exceptionally challenging Grade 9 with 8 students gaining 8 or more grades at this level and at three individuals achieving the highly unusual feat of straight 9’s across the board in all 9, 10 and in one case 11 subjects.
Headteacher, Karen Barrie commented ‘I am delighted with these results which have been achieved across a breadth of subjects and are the outcome of consistently hard work from students and staff over the past 5 years’.
