Record breaking year for GCSE students at Thomas Gainsborough School
For the second time in three years, Thomas Gainsborough School is celebrating its best ever GCSE results.
68% of students attained 5 or more GCSE passes at grades A*-C (including English and Maths) - a rise from 55% in 2015 and 60% in 2014, the school’s previous best results.
In maths and English, 73% of students achieved a grade between A* and C.
Headteacher Wayne Lloyd said: “We are delighted by these results. I would like to congratulate the students on their record-breaking performance.
“It is a fitting reward for their hard work and the dedication and the support that they have received from their teachers. We look forward to welcoming over 120 of them back into our sixth form in September.
“We expect high standards at TGS and will continue to work tirelessly to ensure the highest possible outcomes for all our students into the future”.
There were 220 students who sat examinations in Year 11.
