Tudor Grange Academy GCSE Results 2019
Tudor Grange Students Celebrate Top Grades at GCSE
Students at Tudor Grange Academy Solihull once again celebrated a set of great GCSE results.
Students and staff were delighted with the outcomes which surpassed their previous high performance in the key headline measures. 91% of students achieved grade 4 (or a standard pass equivalent to the old C grade) or above in English and maths. Significantly, 76% achieved Grade 5 (the new strong pass) or above in both core subjects.
The Academy saw a further rise in the number of top grades achieved this year. Well over a third, 37%, of all entries scored Grade 7 or above. In addition, one in five, or 20%, of all entries achieved Grades 8 / 9 in the reformed GCSE qualifications.
Along with all other schools, Tudor Grange has adapted to a new system of reformed qualifications which puts greater emphasis on final examinations which are greater in number, longer and more rigorous in content. These results reinforce the Academy’s status as one of the highest performing non-selective schools in the country.
Principal, Claire Smith said, “We are all so proud of the results achieved by a fantastic set of students. It is gratifying to see their tireless work, and that of the staff, reflected in the success they deserve. Not only have we seen outstanding grades across the board, especially with all departments now taking the new 1-9 courses, but the top grades have increased. In a system where national figures are strictly controlled, this indicates a truly outstanding performance by our students.”
Amongst the many individual success stories, the following students achieved the very top grades of 8 or 9 in at least 9 subjects: Faheem Ali, Holly Briggs, Leah Clements, Serena El-Sayed, Thomas Fowler, Elliot Harris, Archie Harrodine, Conor Jones, Daaniyal Khawaja, Bethany Lappin, Ati Maheshwari, Aaliyah Mann, Fatima Sharif, Raheem Sharif, Molly Walker and Hanaa Yousof.
Fatima Sharif, Raheem Sharif and Ati Maheshwari scored Grade 9 across the board in maths, English Language and Literature plus all three sciences along with other grades of the highest level – a remarkable achievement given the challenge these examinations represent. Notably, Fatima achieved the top Grade 9 in 10 subjects which is a landmark performance.
The results follow on from the school’s success at A-level last week. Mrs Smith said: “The success of the school, as shown in the results at both GCSE and A level, goes from strength to strength. However, we should always remember that behind this data, there are always personal stories of commitment and dedication, often in difficult circumstances. We are proud of each and every one of our students who have worked so hard, with the support of their families, to achieve this success. We are delighted that we can help them on their journey with results that open doors to their next chapter of their lives.”
