TUDOR Grange Academy Redditch GCSE students are celebrating this year despite the introduction of tough new specifications across a number of subjects. Maths results were again exceptional with students exceeding their expected progress by more than half a grade.
This is an increase on last year’s results which put the school’s Maths pass rate in the top 10 per cent nationally.
All core subjects, English, Maths and Science saw an increase in student progress.
Among them were a 100 per cent pass rate in Triple Science (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) with 100 per cent of all triple science grades achieved being 8+ on the new grading system.
There were superb performances from Jess Cann, with 11 GCSE grade 6 or above with 8 of these at grade 7 or above.
George Evans achieved 8 GCSEs graded 5 and above while Flynn Duggan and Charlie Blake gained 8 grades at 6 and above. Other notable results include, Kathryn Wright, Holly Smith, Bradley Price, Joe Maddocks, Jason Hill and Lewis Atkinson who all achieved 7 GCSE grades at 5 and above.
There were also some superb achievements in vocational subjects, with 100 per cent of students achieving GCSE grades at 4 or above (equivalent) in Business Studies, Music, Dance, Sport and Health and Social Care.
Headteacher Jodie Bolter said: “We are extremely proud of our students and their achievements and to see our Maths results improve once again is exceptional.
“We expect our overall progress measure to have improved once again and there are some outstanding results within our core subjects. Our improved results are a testament to all the hard work the students and staff have put in. We are looking forward to continuing to build on this success next year.”
