Statement from College Principal, Michael Muldoon
I wish to congratulate TTC students on their examination achievements. There has been a fantastic buzz of excitement, relief and celebration as students have opened their envelopes this morning and been delighted to have gained the fantastic qualifications that their hard work and effort has deserved.
Well done to Josh Mulryne who achieved the highest grade possible in all of his subjects. He stated, “I'm completely overwhelmed...I am ecstatic, the results open lots of doors for me. They make it easier for me to take my next steps and hopefully in the future go to University to study Humanities. I would like to thank my parents and teachers for their help and support.”
Katelyn Gibson also performed fantastically well achieving top grades in nine of her subjects and a grade 8 in her tenth. Katelyn when asked about her amazing results replied very modestly – “I am pleased with them.”
Gabrielle Smith was delighted by her set of results she commented that she was, “extremely happy with my grades, they are higher than I thought. I am staying at TTC for my A levels. I would like to thank my teachers and my Mother for never giving up on me.”
I am really pleased that the introduction of a new grading system in GCSE English and maths combined with the increased content and complexity of these syllabuses has not had a detrimental impact upon our students. Indeed, they have performed exceptionally well, and deserve high praise for their determination and effort in overcoming the challenges that they have encountered. To be able to celebrate so many top grades in English and Maths is fantastic and I am delighted that this success is replicated right across our broad curriculum offer of academic, creative, artistic and practical subjects.
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!

Statement from College Principal, Michael Muldoon
Yet again, we are delighted by 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 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 half of students achieved a B grade or better include: Art; Computing; Drama; Further Maths; German; English Literature; PE; Photography and Electronics
To achieve at Advanced Level requires ability, determination, and the support of excellent teachers. The achievement of A* grades marks an outstanding accomplishment. Students in: Art; Computing; EPQ; Further Maths; History; English Literature; Maths; PE; Physics; Religious Studies; Resistant Materials and Textiles have reached A* GCE grades this year.
Once again our BTEC students have achieved outstanding results; 85% of awards attaining an A* or A equivalency.
These results reflect 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.
