I am so pleased with my daughter's GCSE results.
They reflect all the hard work she has put in over the last two years and also the hours of revision in the lead up to the exams!
I am so very proud of her.
Thank you for helping to make this day so successful for her.
Parent of Student
Over the past two weeks, we have been delighted to welcome Year 11, 12 and 13 students to our Beyton Campus, to celebrate their wonderful examination achievements.
I am particularly proud of the extent to which all three cohorts of students have made progress since their last external assessment point. As always, I have been inspired by numerous individual success stories.
Our Year 11 students made more progress from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 4 than any other Thurston Community College cohort in recent years, while the Advanced Level grades obtained by our Year 13 cohort exceeded those achieved last summer in every respect. In our first year as an 11-18 school, these results are a credit to the endeavour of our students and to the dedication of the staff who have supported them during their time at Thurston Community College.
Almost 80% of our Year 13 cohort gained admission onto higher education courses, with three students taking up places at Oxbridge Universities. 14 top-performing students (who achieved a minimum of three grade A passes each) notched up an incredible 22 A* and 23 A grades between them! At GCSE, 11 students achieved straight A* and A grades, with 33 students attaining a minimum of 5 grade A passes.
The determination and resilience demonstrated by these results will stand our students in good stead for the future and I wish them every success in their next venture.
