Twynham School does it again ! With

almost 80% gaining five or more A*-C Grades and 64% of the students

gaining five or more A*-C Grades including English and Mathematics. Dr

Terry Fish (Headteacher) commented: “To be very close to 80% of students

gaining five or more A*-C grades for the third year running is nothing

other than tremendous but I am particularly proud of the rapid increase

in A* grades. When this is added to our exceptional A-Level results, I

couldn’t want for more!”

Almost every indicator was a record for the school and 25% of

the grades were at A*/A. In a truly comprehensive school, this really is

outstanding. The students notched up 145 A* and 455 A Grades where top

performers were Joseph Coulter, Morgan Edwards, Holly Fell, Harald

Grantham-Hill, George Lee-Harris, Bailey Melvin-Teng, Matthew Nelms,

Daniel Rowland,  Georgia Smith, David Steel, Diana Stephen and Alice

Watts gained at least 5 A* grades. The highest number of A* grades were

achieve by David Steel and Alice Watts (pictured) where each student

gained 9 A*.

    Twynham always seem to get "outstanding" results. can't say my experiences of them rate so highly ! i.e. teachers out faffing around at the Regent Centre when they should have been taking lessons !

    Exams weren't like that in my days. There was no course work for a start and you had to cram really hard for your exams even if you just wanted to get a C. Do today's students get it too easy, especially when I've heard of teachers helping students with their course work? Surely that defeats the object?
