GCSE Congratulations

Students and staff at Tapton have been celebrating their GCSE success today.

It has been another outstanding year at Tapton. 67% of students achieved a strong pass in both English and Maths and 20% of all grades achieved were grades 8 or 9. These sustain the strong performance over time at Tapton School, in times of continuing uncertainty in education and the distinct lack of funding.

These results reflect the hard work of both staff, students and the tremendous support provided by families.


Kat Rhodes, Headteacher, said: “We’re really proud of all our students. We wish them all the very best in the future and look forward to welcoming many of them into our 6th form in September.”


Two students achieved a full suite of grade 9s (10 in total) – an amazing achievement.


These strong results will allow students to move on to great destinations and realise their life chances and dreams.
