Thames Christian College pupils gain highest number of A*-C GCSE grades ever with  91% of pupils achieving 5 A*-C (including Maths and English)

Last Updated on : 2nd September 2016

This year Thames Christian College is celebrating another strong set of GCSE results with 91% of pupils achieving 5 A*-C (including English and Maths) and 97% of pupils achieving 5 A*-C grades. The percentage of grades attained at 93% A*-C is the best in the school’s history and significantly above the national average. Pupils achieved over one grade higher than expected with one dyslexic pupil achieving an impressive 3.8 grades higher than their prediction tests indicated!


Stephen Holsgrove, Head teacher, Thames Christian College comments: “This year’s GCSE results are some of the best we have ever had, despite being an academically non-selective school. I fully recognise the hard work both on the part of the pupils and the teachers that enables us to consistently achieve such excellent results. At Thames our size enables each pupil to be known individually and receive the attention they need to succeed academically and enjoy a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities.”

Our subject highlights –  % Grades A*/A:

Maths 48%, English 45%, Physics 57%, Chemistry 46%, Biology 46%, History 46%,

French 54%, Spanish 56%, Business Studies 45%, Computing 60%, Art 86%, Graphics 67% and Music 80%.

There have been some outstanding individual performances with Anne achieving 8 A* and 4 A grades, Oscar 9 A*s and 2 As, Ian 9 A*s and 1 A grade, Rose 6 A* and 5 As and Rohan 5 A* and 3 As. Eight others achieved at least 6 A*/A grades, a significant number for a year group of 30. In particular, congratulations to Tannus who achieved 3.8 grades above CATS, gaining 1 A*, 1 A, 4 Bs and 2 C grades including A in English, despite his dyslexia.
