Sixth Form Success Continues

Students at Truro School Sixth Form had plenty of reasons to celebrate on A-Level results day with 81% of all results graded at A*-B, 63% at A*/A and 25% at A*, challenging a national trend which predicted grades to fall halfway between 2019 and 2021 figures.

Mr Andy Johnson, Head at Truro School said, “I would like to pay tribute to all of our ninety-seven Upper Sixth leavers whose immense courage and determination over the last few years we celebrate today. For a cohort who had never sat public examinations before, this group of young people have overcome a range of personal and educational challenges and seized every opportunity to learn and develop over the last two years, both remotely and in School. The scale of their accomplishments and the community they have forged together is astonishing. They should be incredibly proud.”

Alongside our A-Level results, we celebrate the full set of CTH Level 3 Distinctions achieved by our Leiths Cookery School graduates along with 100% A*-A grades for those who took the EPQ, and 100% Distinction* and Distinction grades for our Cambridge Technicals: Sport and Physical Activity graduates.

Mr Johnson commented that “In a school that champions a diverse and holistic Sixth Form education, encapsulated in our Sixth Form Diploma programme, these wider achievements sit proudly alongside the excellence achieved by girls and boys across the Arts, Humanities, Sciences, Technical subjects, and Modern Languages.”

Our class of 2022 go on to exciting futures with our full blessing too. Mr Johnson added, “It is heart-warming to know that even within hours of the results being available, the overwhelming majority of our leavers have places or offers secured at university or wider destinations of their choice, in the UK, abroad (including the USA supported by our Overseas University advisor), and in a truly diverse range of subjects, covering everything from Medicine to Mechanical Engineering, History and Computer Science. For the minority still deciding on their next steps, our staff are here and on hand to help.

“For supporting the journeys and outcomes of these students I offer my sincere thanks to all our staff, teaching and OPS. Their ability to adapt teaching styles and continue to provide ongoing support and compassion to students at home and abroad, as well as one another, across the last few years of disruptions, must also be commended.”

The strong results follow hot on the heels of the recent announcement that Truro School has been shortlisted as one of the leading co-educational independent schools in the UK.
