"I wish to congratulate TTC students on their examination achievements. Many will open their envelopes this morning and be delighted that they have gained the fantastic qualifications that their hard work and effort has deserved. Well done to Zac Slater and Violet Gribbin, who both achieved 8 A* grades, a stunning achievement.
Just like so many of our Olympic stars have done, it is important to acknowledge the work and commitment of those who work ‘behind the scenes’. The teachers and support staff who have such a significant impact, inspiring and supporting our students every step of the way.
I am pleased that our Progress 8 score is positive, students make progress at TTC. This accountability measure, however, would have been even more positive if we had not entered 51 of our higher ability students for GCSE statistics in year 9. Whilst they achieved fantastic results with 92% achieving A* to C grades, entering them early has a negative impact on the new Progress 8 score. Yet, we believe that the stretch and challenge this qualification provides at the end of KS3 is more important than simple accountability measures.
It is, however, disappointing to witness once again significant grade boundary changes. Edexcel GCSE mathematics boundaries have risen sharply for the second year in a row. The A grade boundary has increased by 15 marks from 2015 and the B grade by 10 marks. Where the upward setting of the grade boundaries is most unkind to students is at the C grade boundary, which was raised by 5 marks this year, adding to the 9 mark increase experienced in 2015. A significant number of our middle and lower ability students who deserved to achieve this grade, will now be frustrated that their hard work hasn’t been rewarded."

Michael Muldoon, Principal, commented:
"We are once again delighted by the performance of our students at both A Level and BTEC. We have very high levels of achievement at every level of ability, and in every subject we offer, both vocational and academic. It is fantastic to see young people reaping the rewards of the hard work, effort and dedication they have demonstrated towards their studies. They have earned the results that will take them onto higher education or a wide range of employment possibilities.
Subjects with outstanding results include:
Mathematics and Physics, where over 50% of students achieved A* or A
English Literature; History; Sociology and PE
To achieve at Advanced Level requires ability, determination, and the support of excellent teachers. The achievement of A* grades marks an outstanding accomplishment. Students in: Mathematics; English Literature; Health; Sociology; Psychology and Textiles have reached A* GCE grades this year.
Once again our BTEC students have achieved outstanding results; 85% of awards attaining an A* or A equivalency.
These results reflect the outstanding teaching that takes place every day within our Sixth Form, I am very proud of TTC staff, and we as a College are all very proud of what our students have achieved today."
