Tenison's students celebrate with Ms Fox- Head of Sixth FormTenison’s students are celebrating our best ever set of A Level results.

We had a 100% A Level pass rate and a high percentage of A and B grades. Every student who wanted to go to University has achieved a place and nearly everyone got on to their first choice course.

We have students going on to many of the most prestigious universities including Warwick, Kings College London, Loughborough and Glasgow. Science courses were the most popular university choices with students gaining places to study Chemical, Civil and Mechanical Engineering.

History A Level did especially well with 100% getting an A or B grade and all our students in Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Computing, Art and Arabic got at least a grade C.

Congratulations to everyone and well done as well to the teachers…now for the celebrations before it’s down to the hard work on our University courses!

We are proud to say that for the fifth year running we have no NEETS (not in education training or employment) leaving the school.

“Around the school, students are considerate to each other and to staff. Without exception, they say they would recommend the school to others”
