Trinity Press GCSE release 2020

This morning the Year 11 pupils were welcomed back to school by the leadership and sixth form team.   After five months of lockdown, there were scenes of celebration and delight as the pupils received their GCSE results.   There has been much uncertainty around the National grading system this year and the school ensured that a wide range of staff were on hand to support and advise pupils to ensure they knew how to progress to their next stage of education.

33% of students achieved 5 strong passes including English and Maths and an increase of 3 % on last year.  In English and Maths,  71% and 61% standard pass  respectively with another 3% increase in those achieving grades 9 to 7 in both English and Maths.

Mr Jon Shires, Head of School at Trinity Catholic School said “Students should be proud of their results as they reflect their hard work and achievements during their time at school, not solely the results of an algorithm. It was a pleasure to see so many students smiling knowing they have secured their places on post 16 courses given the turmoil and uncertainty of last week”

Executive Principal, Mr Leverage said, “We are absolutely delighted for our students.  GCSE results day is a culmination of five years of hard work and we must not allow the extraordinary events of the last few months to taint the joy and success of these pupils.   I am delighted that all of our pupils have achieved the grades they needed to secure their places at sixth form and college and I wish them the very best for all of their future endeavours.”
