Year 11 students at Theale Green School are celebrating this morning after collecting their GCSE results. They achieved some terrific GCSEs, and we are looking forward to welcoming many into the Sixth Form, which has just been confirmed as a Grade 1 ALPS provider (the top 1% in the country for Sixth Form provision).
Very special congratulations go to Tara Evans who achieved eight of the very top and elusive Grade 9 GCSEs, as well as two more in the highest band.
Many students at Theale Green School enjoy the rich curriculum offered particularly in Arts, Performing Arts and PE. Once again, many students achieved the highest grades in these subjects, as we also celebrate the PE department receiving its Gold Award for the sixth year in a row.
Corinna Bartle achieved a spectacular six GCSEs at the very top grades, including two Grade 9s in English (as well as three more high passes).
Special congratulations also go to Sofianna Nouka who achieved Grade 6 in both her English papers having arrived from aboard to Theale Green School during KS4, learning English along the way.
Also deserving congratulations is Joseph Buxton who has achieved GCSE results to be proud of whilst competing hard at national level in swimming.
Diogo Mariano and Kathryn Ambrose both achieved an average GCSE score of Grade 8; even more impressively Diogo made the most progress in the whole year group based on primary school data.
Headteacher of Theale Green School, Joanna Halliday, said: “This year has been a turning point for Theale Green School that has been long awaited by the community.
“After very strong A Level results, we are celebrating our GCSE results today. The students, staff and parents have worked collectively together to raise standards of teaching and learning whilst keeping relationships and pastoral care at the forefront. The students worked so hard for these results, attending Saturday and holiday sessions, as well as two thirds of the year group attending our now famous Past Paper Friday. They should be exceptionally proud of their effort and commitment and we can’t wait for them to become our newest group of Sixth Form students.”
Joanne Harper, CEO of Activate Learning Education Trust, said: “It has been a real pleasure to see Theale Green School begin its journey of transformation this year. The ALET Board are so delighted to see how new and strong leadership, combined with the determination of the whole Theale Green School community to succeed, has, after 10 or so years, now put this excellent school back on the right track. Congratulations to all of the students and the staff on their terrific progress.”
