The number of students attaining grades of A* is the highest in the History of the College including a total of 13 grades A* in Maths. Overall results in English and Maths were 75% and 73% grades A*-C and this is above National average. There are other subjects to be commended on their outstanding results; For example in GCSE Textiles and Spanish, an outstanding 64% of the students achieved the high grades A* and A.  Other subject like Product Design, Health Studies and French have achieved some of the highest percentage of A*-C in the history of the college.

This fourth year of continually improving results 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, in a time with yet again significant changes in examinations and league tables, well over 50% of the students at TCC celebrate achieving 5A*-C GCSE grades including English and mathematics.  Over 96% of our students gained at least one A*- C grades.  Over 18% of our students gained 5 GCSEs at grades A* and A.  

We would like to mention a few students below for their outstanding achievements starting with James Fortt who achieved 4 A* 7 A, Imogen Keable who achieved 5 A* and 5 A, Will Allen who achieved 5 A*, 4 A and 1 B, Sorrel Knott who achieved 3 A*, 5 A and 1 B and Kelsie Miller who achieved 4 A*, 3 A and 2 B. There are, of course, many other stars that could be named and a massive well done to all students and all their achievements. At TCC, students have yet again broken records in the history of TCC. The achievement of all individuals will be celebrated at a special awards ceremony in December 2015 when students collect their examination certificates. 

It was clear that the class of 2015 was a very special group. Rising to every challenge and imposed change as dictated by the Department for Education.
