Stop Press - Results 2016
Our Year 11 of 2016 has achieved another stunning set of GCSE results, with 73% gaining 5+A*-C including English and mathematics and 77% gaining the new “Basics” measure. 96% of students were awarded an A*-C in English, and 79% were awarded an A*-C in Mathematics. 77% of the whole year group (not just the more able) were awarded an A*-C in at least two sciences. The percentage of passes at the very highest grades was also exceptional, with 31% of the whole year group gaining A*-A in English, 20% gaining an A*-A in mathematics, and 24% gaining an A*-A in at least two sciences.
The provisional Thurstable “Progress 8” Score 2016 is +0.6. This means that at Thurstable each student scored more than half a grade higher in every subject than students of the same ability nationally.
In the 6th Form, 46% of all entries (A level and BTEC combined) were at A*-A level, and the pass rate was 100%.
Many congratulations to our wonderful students, and many thanks to our fantastic staff.
