GCSE Results 2016
“Inspired Optimistic Learners” from Torpoint Community College celebrate outstanding results with significant improvements to last year’s results with a year upon year increase.
Inspired students at Torpoint Community College have achieved outstanding results with a significant improvement in the number of students attaining GCSE grades including English and Mathematics. Students at Torpoint have made above their expected progress where nearly 10% of students achieved an A* in their GCSEs. This significant improvement across the College is a reflection of both each and every inspired individual learner and the hard working members of staff. The College is looking forward to welcoming a significant number of these students into the hugely successful Sixth Form at the College which again this year also celebrates excellent results and sees every student move successfully to their next steps.
At this early stage of examination analysis, with several results yet to come in and the array of changes to courses, examinations and GCSEs, nearly 60% of students gained a minimum of 5 or more GCSEs grades A* – C including English and Mathematics. Some particular TCC stars in terms of attainment this year include Tom Lancaster with 2 A*, 6 A, 1 B, 1 C, Ethan Hunt with 2 A*, 3 A, 2 B, 1 C, Matthew Clarke with 2 A*, 4 A, 3 B, Olivia Leeman with 2 A*, 4 A, 3 B, Sam Wainwright with 2 A*, 2 A, 4 B, 2 C, Mel Hart with 2 A*, 7 B and Bryonny Pearton with 1 A*, 3 A, 5 B, 1 C. However, there are many other students that have made significant progress and the College congratulates all students for their outstanding achievement. The achievement of all individuals will be celebrated at a special awards ceremony in December 2016 when students collect their examination certificates.
The College is immensely proud to be a fully inclusive College and students at the College on vocational programmes also did exceptionally well achieving distinctions and merits from their Btec and ASDAN courses. It was clear that the class of 2016 was a very special group and whilst students celebrated their achievements, individual subject areas celebrated student successes with above average pass rates in over 10 different curriculum areas.
Jeremy Plumb, Deputy Headteacher at the College said “All the staff and Governors at the College are extremely proud of our students’ achievements and are looking forward to supporting them over the next few years. Well done”.
