Tonbridge Grammar School has been recognised as one of the top state schools for the International Baccalaureate by The Sunday Times Parent Power Awards. This means TGS has maintained its position at the top of the league table for the sixth year running.
On average the all-International Baccalaureate Sixth Form achieved the highest diploma scores anywhere in the state school sector with one student achieving the maximum 45 marks – a score shared with below 1% of her fellow IB students worldwide. Overall, 73% of TGS leavers gained a place at their firm choice university and 71% of the places accepted were at a Russell Group university including Oxford, Cambridge or medical schools.
This year at GCSE/iGCSE students gained exceptional results ; English and Mathematics grades were 94% A or better and this is mirrored within Science, Biology 94% A/A*and, Chemistry and Physics 90% A/A*. Language results were remarkable with all students gaining A or A* in Spanish and 96% doing so in French.
In September, Sixth Form students moved into a brand new state-of-the-art Sixth Form Study Centre known as the IBarn. The building was funded partly by a government grant and partly by funds raised by TGS students and the School’s wider community.
