GCSE results show holistic approach pays off 

25th August 2016

Lawrence Coen, Headmaster, was pleased with this year’s GCSE results which accurately reflected the hard work and commitment of pupils and staff alike. What was especially satisfying was that, overall, students achieved, or exceeded, their predicted grades demonstrating that the Trinity Triangle – Pupil, Parent, School – works well to get the best possible outcome for each individual despite the decline in GCSE grades seen nationally this year.

Mr Larkman, Head of Key Stage 4, said ‘The students have got what they deserve. A particular highlight for me being the fact that over a quarter of students achieved 10 or more GCSE’s. In addition, we have seen the performance of the boys improve significantly this year and so going against normal trends. The overall holistic education that Trinity provides means that students have achieved at or above their predictions as well as having a wealth of experience and skills to draw on later in life.’

Mr Coen added ‘When reflecting on their results, students also need to remember all of the other fantastic achievements they have gained this year, whether it being in the school production, playing for school teams or their work as an envoy around the school. Grades are important and get you to the next stage but they need to be complimented by resilience, courage and confidence in yourself. Trinity combines the academic, co-curricular and pastoral sides of education to ensure that this occurs. We wish those that are leaving the best of luck and look forward to welcoming the majority back in September as they start their next adventure in the Sixth Form.’
