GCSE Results Day 2023

GCSE Results 2023 – Press Release

Testbourne Community School is delighted to congratulate its students on their fantastic GCSE and BTEC qualifications this summer. Three quarters of students achieved a ‘standard’ pass of grade 4 and above in both English and Maths combined. Over 15% of students achieved the top grades 9-7 in both English and Maths. This is an incredible achievement when we know that these children have been impacted both by the pandemic and the re-alignment of results to 2019 levels.

One in six students achieved at least one of the top grade 9s in their GCSEs, whilst 87 grade 9s were awarded to students across all subjects. Of these top grades, over half were in English, Maths or Science subjects. This is in addition to many other students who made great progress from their starting points during their time at Testbourne.

Many subjects, including Biology, Chemistry, Combined Science, English Language, English Literature, Design Technology, Drama, French, Geography, Maths, Music, and Physics, are celebrating pass rates above 75% with their students.
Our students can celebrate in the knowledge that they have achieved some excellent results this year, whilst being confident that they have been prepared well for the next stage in their education.

Mr Beck, Headteacher at TCS said: “We are proud of our students who have achieved brilliant results this year in some very challenging post-pandemic circumstances, including realignment of grades with 2019 standards after three years of teacher assessed or adjusted grades. As always, it was heartening to see many happy students opening their results envelopes. Our staff have worked tirelessly to deliver a quality education for our students to enable them to progress onto further education and study. We wish the class of 2023 well for their post-16 studies and look forward to learning of their future successes.”
