Statement from College Principal, Michael Muldoon
Well done to TTC students, who today are celebrating their fantastic examination achievements. There has been success across the board! It was a privilege to share in the buzz of excitement and anticipation as our students opened their envelopes this morning to reveal their well deserved qualifications. Qualifications that will enable them to pursue their next steps; whether this is to study at our excellent Sixth form, to start an apprenticeship or to go into the world of work.
Well done to Millicent Lord who achieved outstanding results in her subjects she stated: “ I am really happy and surprised.”
Josh Rackham who said “I’m just very happy. I think my mum will cry.”
Mark Tian was over the moon with his results commenting:– “I’m really pleased, especially with the grade 9s in science.”
Beth Elliot was delighted, she said “It wasn’t what I expected, I am so happy with my results.”
Jack McKenna who achieved several grade 8s said “Very pleased. Hard work definitely pays off.”
Another student who was delighted with their grade 9 in combined science was Lachlan Carpenter he said “I am so pleased with my grade.”
It is important to acknowledge the effort and commitment of those who work ‘behind the scenes’. The teachers, support staff and parents who have such a significant impact, inspiring and supporting our students every step of the way. Well done to all!
The 2018 summer exam season saw students sitting the new Grade 9-1 GCSEs in all subjects except technology. The new 9-1 numerical grades do not map across in a simple way to the A*-G grades. This dramatic break from what has gone before means that comparison of this year’s GCSE scores with previous years is meaningless. The headline figures incorporating maths and English grades that schools have quoted in the past consequently cannot be used again.
The 9-1 grades that students have achieved in maths and English and now most other subjects will be used by the Department of Education to calculate Attainment 8 and Progress 8 figures for all schools. These will be available at some point in the autumn term.

Michael Muldoon, Principal, commented
Once again, we are celebrating the performance of our students at both A Level and BTEC. We have very high levels of achievement at every level of ability, and in every subject we offer, both vocational and academic. It is fantastic to see our young people reaping the rewards of the hard work, effort and dedication they have demonstrated towards their studies. They have earned the results that will take them onto higher education or a wide range of employment possibilities. Subjects where over 50% of students achieved a B grade or better include:
Further Maths, Photography, Drama, Textiles, Chemistry & English Literature.
Yet again our BTEC students have achieved outstanding results; 90% of awards were at merit or distinction level.
To achieve at this level requires ability and determination. These results are also indicative of the outstanding teaching that takes place every day within our Sixth Form, I am very proud of TTC staff, and we as a College are all very proud of what our students have achieved today. They leave us as confident, responsible and talented young people with the qualifications needed to achieve their future hopes and aspirations.
