GCSE results day met with smiles all round!

GCSE results day met with smiles all round!

Students across our schools were ‘thrilled’ with their GCSE results and we, as a Trust, are also delighted by the achievements of our students. Due to the ongoing pandemic the Government made the decision that this year, young people’s grades would be determined by teachers based on work they had produced throughout their courses.

These grades are a reflection of the dedication of our staff, who have worked tirelessly to ensure our students are supported and that no stone is left unturned to ensure they reach their potential. Students at Goodwin AcademyHolcombe Grammar SchoolThe Rochester Grammar SchoolThe Victory Academy and Plymouth High School for Girls collected their GCSE results safely in alphabetical group entries.

The feelings of bubbling excitement overarched with anxiety were obvious as envelopes were torn opened, and dreams were realised or tweaked. Our Trust is overjoyed for the students’ successes and their futures. Our students have yet again risen to the challenge of their own academic achievements and it has been a real delight to see their smiling faces as we know that they’ve also had fun and developed strong friendships along the way.


Collecting his GCSE results today, Markus Sadler, said: “I feel delighted with my results today and I’m extremely thankful to my teachers for giving me so much support both during lockdown and when we returned to school. I am now really excited to be starting my A levels in September.”


Stuart Gardner, TSAT CEO said: “I am so proud of all of our students who, in partnership with staff, parents and carers, have achieved so well this year. Congratulations all of you on your excellent results and I look forward to welcoming so many students back to our Trust sixth form schools in September to continue their studies with us.”
