A warm welcome back for the start of our 2015/16 academic year. I’m sorry that I can’t make a more glowing reference to glorious summer weather, but I hope that all Truro School families have enjoyed some rest and relaxation.
A Level Results and University Admissions
I did make a glowing reference a couple of weeks ago when I blogged about our terrific A Level results, which have got even better with some favourable remarks. More importantly, the ALPS value added report highlights how our students have performed relative to their ability level and makes very happy reading. We aim each year to achieve a value added outcome in the top 25% of schools nationally as an indication that our teaching and learning is making a real difference. In the event, for the second year running, our value added score is in the top 10% of schools nationally. Our Upper Sixth leavers and our teachers who guided them have done us proud.
