IMPROVED GCSE RESULTS AT TPS


The Petersfield School recorded a substantially improved over-all ‘score’ in the 2014 GCSE results, with 66% of students gaining  5+A*-C including English and Mathematics.
Every Year 11 student left TPS with a GCSE in English and Mathematics.

There were notable results in many subjects, including GCSE Further Mathematics, GCSE Biology, GCSE Music and GCSE Sociology, which all scored 100% A*-C.

The percentage of TPS students who gained the English Baccalaureate, the Government’s  initiative to encourage the study of more academic subjects, is likely to be twice the national average.

Of particular note this summer is the achievement of Head Girl, Cassie Shorten, who gained an A* in all 12 of the GCSEs she sat this summer.

Equally noteworthy are the performances of Lizaveta Sinkevich and Guillaume Tran, who both arrived at TPS with very little English, yet Liza has achieved 10 A*-C, including 4x A*s, whilst Guillaume has gained 8 GCSEs, with 3 at Grade A/A*.

Principal Nigel Poole commented:  “I am delighted with these results. The students had worked very hard, ably supported by our teachers, and their efforts have paid off. Behind the headlines are incredible stories of many young people who have overcome great personal adversity and my heartiest congratulations go to them all.”
