GCSE Results at Teesside High School

Thursday 12 August 2021 | By Samantha Hockney

Almost half of all GCSE entries at Teesside High School secured the highest possible 9-7 (A**-A) grades this year.

A fantastic 94% of all Year 11 students secured the national benchmark of 5 or more GCSE passes including English and maths, as the school recorded an impressive 99.5% pass rate.

Teesside High’s record of outstanding academic success continued as 96% of all students achieved 5 or more GCSE passes at grades 9-4.

Kirsty Mackenzie, Head at Teesside High School, said:

“These results mark the end of a tumultuous two years for Year 11 pupils, and they are rightly over the moon with their grades today.

“We have offered each and every THS pupil a detailed and personalised intervention strategy to ensure they were stretched and challenged throughout their GCSE courses, pushing and supporting them to achieve their very best despite the difficult circumstances they faced.

“Our students have achieved outstanding results throughout the broad curriculum we offer, as well as in extension subjects such as Ancient Greek and Further Maths. Many of our subjects are celebrating record high grades, too; 100% 9-7 (A**-A) grades in Further Maths, 100% in Ancient Greek, 83% in Biology, 82% in Music and 80% in German, to name but a few.

“It has been a challenging two years in many respects but the two results days we have experienced this week have made every step of the journey worthwhile.”
