Following on from Tarporley High School's outstanding A Level results last week, Tarporley's Year 11 students have once again achieved excellent grades.
This year marks the first year that students have completed the new GCSE qualifications in nearly all subjects, where the grading system spans from grade 9 (the highest grade) to grade 1 (the lowest).
With the newly designed grade 9, which recognises the very highest performing pupils, the outstanding school saw nearly 20% of the cohort achieve the very highest of grades (Grade 8 and Grade 9) which is equivalent to grade A* and A** respectively.

Across all grades, a third were impressively at grade 7 or higher (equivalent to an A grade) and over 80% were above the new grade 4 benchmark (equivalent to a grade C.)
Head Teacher Jason Lowe said "My congratulations go out to all our students who have shown such exceptional commitment to their studies. They have been an outstanding year group who have made many valuable contributions to the school. I wish them all the best for the future and look forward to welcoming many of them into our Sixth Form.
I would like to thank the families of our students for all the support they have given over the last five years. My thanks also go to our passionate and dedicated staff who have worked extremely hard to enable all of our students to achieve."
