Twynham School recognised by Minister of State, Nick Gibb MP

Nick Gibb MPI am delighted to let you know that I have recently received a letter from Nick Gibb MP which congratulates Twynham on being amongst the top 100 non-selective state school for the greatest sustained improvement for GCSE results between 2013 and 2015. This is a great achievement and a wonderful testament to everyone’s hard work.

I have also received notification from Alps (Advanced Level Performance System) which recognises the Twynham Sixth Form for its sustained excellence over the past 3 years. This recognises the Twynham Sixth Form as being in the top 25% of Sixth Forms nationally for ‘adding value’ to our students.

You will also be interested to know that we have undertaken an additional analysis of the ‘value added’ of our Sixth Form compared to other local Sixth Forms, whether schools or colleges. You will be delighted to know that we are the top performer when compared to the 30 most local Sixth Form providers. We actually gave up comparing when we got to 30 providers and this search stretched into Bournemouth, Poole, Hampshire, Wiltshire etc.

This is all wonderful news and recognises just how well all our students do at GCSE and at A-Level.

For Year 11 students due to join our Sixth Form this coming September, it should be especially encouraging to know that you will be joining the highest performing Sixth Form in a very wide area. For our students in the main school, including our own Year 11 students, this should also give you confidence that our teachers and support staff really do know how to help and prepare you for your GCSEs as you move through the school.

Lastly, I’d like to thank all our staff and our parents for this success, since it doesn’t happen by accident. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication by everyone and I hope that you are as pleased and encouraged as I am that our students do so well. Thank you for all your support.

Executive Headteacher
