Tapton Celebrates best A-Level results in the City

Congratulations to everyone in the Sixth Form

We are delighted that we have been able to support our students in realising their life chances and dreams. The outstanding results at Tapton have opened the way to brilliant destinations for our students:

  • 15 students to Oxford and Cambridge (An achievement that makes Tapton one of the most successful schools in the country for Oxbridge entry).
  • 16 students to medical school
  • 3 students to dentistry and 1 to veterinary
  • 34% of all students achieving A A B including the most challenging facilitator subjects – opening the way to scholarships and entry into the most competitive universities in the UK and internationally.

This has confirmed that our commitment to a broad curriculum enables students to access courses as varied as International Relations and Spanish, Fashion Design, Architecture, Music, Liberal Arts, Bio Chemistry with a Professional Placement and Japanese. This in addition to the strong backbone of more traditional routes into Science, History, English, Engineering and Mathematics is truly impressive.

At a time of significant financial challenge, our commitment to the offer of four subjects in year 12 has given students choice and opportunity. Tapton stands for Valuing Everyone, Caring for Each Other and Achieving Excellence. This was expressed so clearly by Rosie, an outgoing Y13 student who when asked why she chose Tapton said, “I knew I could be ambitious here.”

Alongside 71% A*B, Tapton students have achieved a 100% pass rate. Co Headteachers, Kat Rhodes and Adrian May, added 'We are incredibly proud that together as a school we have made a difference - we wish you all well as you go on to your brilliant futures. We are proud of each and every one of you!'

Please note: If you or someone you know would like to part of our future success we have a small number of sixth form places still available for September 18.  If you are interested please get in touch with Andrew Wright awright@taptonschool.co.uk.

For entry in 2019 our Post-16 Open Evening is on the 20th November 2018.
