Taunton School International are delighted to announce another very successful year of results from their one-year and two-year GCSE students, with many achieving Level 9 (the highest level possible). It is an incredible achievement for all the students to do so well in such a short space of time and in a second language.

Overall, our students achieved a really pleasing 9 – 4 pass rate of 89% (almost 20% higher than the national average pass rate in England).

The percentage of students achieving the top 3 Levels (Levels 9 – 7) was an impressive 41% and more than double the national average of 17.4%.

Many subjects saw a 100% pass rate once again this year, including Art, German, ICT, Music, Psychology and Latin.

Pass rates of over 90% were also recorded in Biology, Business Studies, Economics, English, French, Geography and Mathematics.

All of our top 10 students achieved 7 or more GCSEs in just one year

Adrian Hallworth, Principal of Taunton School International, said:

“I am very pleased with the results this year, particularly considering the many changes that the Government has brought in.  A good number of our students sat the recently revamped GCSEs, with grades from 9 -1 instead of A* to G. These new GCSEs have had even more content added and so it is credit to the students to have achieved so well in such a short space of time.

The vast majority of our students achieved six or more GCSE passes, with a significant proportion attaining seven and others being successful in a remarkable eight subjects in just one year of study.  It is sometimes hard to appreciate how hard these students have to work to achieve such outstanding results. They are supported by a wonderful team of professionals, both in and out of the classroom, who create a fantastic ethos and atmosphere. Our students are nurtured, challenged and inspired to maximise their potential and to achieve the wonderful GCSE results we have this year.

I congratulate every one of our students and wish them the very best of luck as they continue their onward journey into Sixth Form. They have all developed a significant number of academic skills which will undoubtedly stand them in good stead for their onward journeys and I very much look forward to hearing of their numerous successes in years to come.”
