Examination Results

We are extremely proud of our reputation for academic success and delighted to strengthen this further with another round of excellent A-level and GCSE results in August 2021. Please note, due to our independent school status, our results are not always accurately reflected in the Department for Education league tables. For up to date facts, figures and comparisons, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We are a small school which punches above its weight; our examination results rival some of the most academically selective schools in the entire North East region.

We are one of the region’s leading independent schools (The Sunday Times, 2021); we are proud to add significant value to each and every students’ education.

Value Added

In September 2021. Teesside High School received recognition for the value added to pupils’ expected examination results, with our Sixth Form singled out for particular praise.

The school’s Science, A-level Mathematics and Sixth Form (16-18) departments have all been applauded for achieving value-added scores which rank within the top 1% of educational providers in the UK.

Value-added is a measure of the progress students make during their time at school.

At Teesside High School Sixth Form, on average, every student achieved almost a grade higher than their GCSE results suggested they would.

In STEM, every single one of the school’s Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics subjects achieved value-added results which rank within the top 1% of the country, with every STEM student exceeding their A-level examination target by between one and two grades.
