Students at Tonbridge Grammar School (TGS) are celebrating outstanding results from this year’s A Level examinations. Overall, 80 per cent of candidates scored at least one A* or A grade, an increase of 5 per cent from last year. Of these students, 18 per cent gained at least one A* which is a 4 per cent increase from the previous year.
Mrs Rosemary Joyce, Head Teacher at TGS, said:
‘These results are very impressive and reflect the hard work and determination of our students. I am exceptionally proud of them and of what they have managed to achieve.’
Students who performed particularly well include Lucy Tang from Tunbridge Wells and Emily Taylor from Wadhurst, both of whom achieved 2 A*and 2 A grades. Helena Philpott from West Malling was also delighted with her 4 A grades.
With an average UCAS point score of 376 points, A Level students at TGS scored an average of 3.1 A grades each.
This is the last A Level cohort at TGS because, from now onwards, the International Baccalaureate will be offered exclusively to Sixth Form students. The IB Diploma Programme is an alternative to traditional A levels and is internationally recognised for being academically rigorous as well as for making students aware of their responsibilities as participants in a global world.
