Our press release for fantastic GCSE results this year

Students at Townsend School achieved ‘best ever’ GCSE results this year with 84% of students achieving 5 or more A*- C. A third of all pupils achieved at least 5 A* or A grades and nearly two thirds of the grades achieved were A*- B grades. 

Headteacher Mr Andrew Wellbeloved commented that “We are absolutely delighted with attainment of this group, however it is also extremely pleasing to see the progress of all learners achieving much higher grades than previous national indicators. Ensuring that all learners achieve better than expected progress is an avowed aim of the school and these results show what can be accomplished when you have excellent and conscientious students, supported by a fantastic team of teachers. To achieve our best ever results is a pleasing end to another year of consistent effort by everyone at Townsend.”
