Tadcaster Grammar in top ten for GCSEs

Tadcaster Grammar has received national recognition for the proportion of top grades achieved by its pupils in the GCSE exams last year.

The Toulston-based school qualified as one of the top 10 per cent of non-selective schools in England where at least 19 per cent of students gained 5A*-A grades including English and Maths.

Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said: “Tadcaster Grammar School should be congratulated for their stunning achievement in securing some of the best GCSE results in the country.

“Tadcaster Grammar School has proved itself to be one of the best schools in the country at securing superb GCSE outcomes for their students. There is plenty that other schools could learn from Tadcaster Grammar School’s success.

Every school has been ranked according to how well they performed in their GCSE results in 2011 in new rankings released by SSAT – the representative body for schools.

The rankings, calculated by SSAT using official data, raise the bar by only counting the school’s performance at the highest GCSE grades – A* and A – reflecting desire to achieve the very best results for their students.
