GCSE Joy for Students at Tring Park School

Living Magazines Tring Park GCSE Results Day

Tring Park School for the Performing Arts is delighted to announce another successful year of impressive GCSE exam results.

Overall, 58.1% of students achieved grades A*-A, and 36.2% attained grades 9-7, in comparison with the national average of 22% grade 7/A and above.

Subject areas including French, German, Music and Triple Science achieved a 100% pass rate, demonstrating that a dual curriculum, with both academic and vocational study, can work in nurturing industrious and committed young people, dedicated to their learning. 97.7% of students achieved a grade A*-C in English Language, and 93% attained 9-4 for Mathematics.

Imogen Niesyto, Head of Middle School at Tring Park School for the Performing Arts, comments: ‘We are incredibly proud of all our students for working so hard and achieving such excellent grades in their GCSEs again this year. We are impressed by their continuous effort and dedication to both their academic and vocational studies.’

Stefan Anderson, the school’s Principal, says, ‘I would like to take the opportunity to give my thanks to the outstanding team of academic, vocational, and pastoral staff that have worked tirelessly to support and nurture our talented young people. These grades are a testament to their ongoing commitment and hard work’.

Amongst the top achievers, six students achieved five or more 9-8/A* grades, and as an academically non-selective school, Tring Park School is equally proud of the many students who exceeded their Minimum Target Grades. A significant number of students will be staying on to study for up to three A levels at the Sixth Form, whilst continuing to develop their vocational talents through specialist training in the performing arts.

The school recently announced the retirement of its long-standing and accomplished Principal, Stefan Anderson, following a distinguished 21-year career at the school, and it is pleased to announce the appointment of Simon Larter-Evans, effective from 1 September 2023. Moving into the new academic year, the aim is to build on the already fantastic achievements the school has, from performing across all vocational disciplines to excellence in academics.

Simon Larter-Evans comments on the fantastic GCSE results, ‘For decades, I’ve been aware of how incredibly high achieving the students at Tring Park School are, both academically and vocationally. It is a real centre of excellence for young people and this year’s results make me even more excited to be joining as Principal at the beginning of the autumn term.’
