Trinity Stars Excel in GCSE Results
23rd August 2018
Pupils at Trinity School have excelled in this year’s GCSE results, with 81% of all grades receiving 9-4 (A*-C equivalent), far exceeding the national average.
Over half of these passes were 9-6 grades, further emphasising the impressive achievements of this cohort. The 81% 9-4 (A*-C) means an increase of almost 20% on last year at Trinity.
The number of pupils achieving 9’s at Trinity also bettered the national average, showing that the individual approach taken to each pupil really does work as the increased rigour of Level 2 qualifications have meant the top grade has become more elusive. These results are even more impressive as the school remains non-selective but continues to compete with and better other more selective schools in the area.
Different qualifications like GCSEs and BTECs can be combined at Trinity as the school has been able to focus on offering the courses most suitable for each student, which means pupils are able to reach their potential and move on to further successes in Sixth Form both inside and outside the classroom.
Today’s results compliment the impressive A level results for Trinity School again this year with 94% of all grades being A*-C (or equivalent), with 50% achieving A* or A (or equivalent). Members of this cohort moving onto Sixth Form at Trinity can look forward to developing further academically and personally with opportunities for leadership responsibilities and extra-curricular activities.
