GCSE and BTEC Results 2022
Across the subjects, students have achieved highly and are now well placed to continue their successful learning journeys. All of the TSS staff are so proud of every single Year 11 for what they have achieved this year.
Being the first set of Year 11 students to sit exams for three years was never going to be easy, which is why we couldn’t be prouder of our students today. Their resilience, hard work and determination have paid off with these excellent results. Every student now has valuable qualifications that will allow them to proceed on to the next steps of their life.
None of this would have been possible without the hard work and support of all the TSS teachers and support staff who have gone above and beyond to make sure no student missed out. I would also like to thank all of our students' parents and carers for their support too.

A Level and BTEC Results 2022
Being the first set of students to sit exams for three years was never going to be easy, which is why we couldn’t be prouder of our students today. Their resilience, hard work and determination have paid off with these excellent results. Every student now has invaluable qualifications that allow them to proceed on to the next steps of their life. In particular, we are very pleased that nearly every student who applied to university got the necessary grades to join their first choice university and course. None of this would have been possible without the hard work and support of all the TSS teachers and support staff who have gone above and beyond to make sure no student missed out. I would also like to thank all of our students' parents and carers too for their support.
