Congratulations to our students and staff on our GCSE results.

 

 Our Science students excelled themselves again with excellent results in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Over 97% of our Computer Science students passed and 38% achieved an A grade or higher in this subject, which the Government brought in to challenge students for a career in computer programming. Sir John Thursby is Lead School for Computing.

In Mathematics, 62% of students achieved A*-C and 56% did the same in English. Many other subjects are at or above national levels with over 98% in Physics, 93% in Chemistry, 83% in Biology,  93% in Sports Studies, 81% in Textiles, 71% in German, 79% in Geography, 69% in Citizenship and 70% in Graphics. We are still waiting for a few results to come in.


Our GCSE results are due to the hard work of students and staff with the support of parents and families. Our academic achievement together with our outstanding care, guidance and support, great sporting success and Gold Artsmark status means that we are oversubscribed again this year. Many students have achieved outstanding results with our highest performers achieving straight A and A* grades in all of their GCSE subjects.
