 “As usual, the day has been one of high emotion for us here at school”, said Chris Nuttall, Director of Sixth Form, “This has been a delightful year group who have not only developed academically during their time here at Tarporley, but also personally, as individuals. Our Sixth Form students contribute so much to the life of the school and to the local community, and are frequently praised for their mature approach, their teamwork and their leadership. Today is reward for all their hard work, supported by their families and the dedicated staff at the school. I would like to take this opportunity to wish them every success in their next pathway in life. We really will miss them all!”

Advanced Level Results

Tarporley High School & Sixth Form College

GCSE

Following on from Tarporley High School’s successful A Level results last week, Tarporley’s Year 11 students have once again achieved outstanding grades. 

This year’s results marks the first cohort who have completed the new GCSE qualifications in English Language, English Literature and Maths, where the grading system spans from grade 9 (the highest grade) to grade 1 (the lowest).

Impressively, over a quarter of the cohort achieved grade 7 (equivalent to an A grade) or above in English and Maths with over 41% of the cohort achieving a 7 or above in GCSE English.

This year also saw the introduction of the newly designed grade 9 which recognises the very highest performing pupils.  Remarkably, nearly 50 of these prestigious grades were awarded to Tarporley students.  The outstanding school also scored particularly highly as a third of all grades awarded overall were at grade 9/A*/A. 

Headteacher Sarah Lee said “My congratulations go out to all our conscientious students who have shown such exceptional commitment to make excellent progress.  As always, I would like to thank their families for all the support they have given over the last five years. I would also like to offer my thanks to our passionate and dedicated staff who have worked extremely hard to enable all of our students to achieve.”
