Talented Writers

Attached is an example of the excellent writing produced by some of our TAG students at the end of the last academic year.

Thanks to Mrs McLeod for passing them on.

Outstanding Results!

Congratulations to both our Sixth Form and Y11 cohorts!

In Y12, there was a significant 10% increase in the proportion of the top A*-B grades. Meanwhile, there was a similarly impressive 9% increase in Y13.

In Y11, our 56 GCSE TAG students performed brilliantly: the average TAG student’s average result in their top 8 subjects including English & Maths was A-grade! In other words, the average TAG student secured 8 A grades at GCSE.

39.2% of all students (TAG or otherwise) in Y11 secured 3+ A*-A grades and a terrific 17% of the whole cohort (c.35 of the 199 Y11 students) achieved 7+ A*-A grades.

All of this is set in a context of outstanding results for all students in Y11 – a real testimony to our commitment to Stretch & Challenge for All (of which TAG is a part)…


In terms of their progress against personal targets, there was also a cause for celebration: there was a very positive “value added”, meaning that, taken as a collective of 56, each student posted higher grades than the ambitious “stretch & challenge” targets set for them.

A wonderful achievement: all thanks to the efforts of staff, parents or carers, the wider community and, of course, the students!
