GCSE success at Treviglas

By Warren Wilkins 30th August 2017

GCSE success at Treviglas
Students at Treviglas welcome their exams success.

PROUD Treviglas students were able to celebrate their successes and achievements when they collected their GCSE results on Thursday morning.

Exceptional results were seen in health and social care, with half of students achieving either a distinction or a distinction star.

There were also top results in sport, mirroring the success that Treviglas’ sports teams and individuals have had across the year, including county finalists in Year 10 boys football, South West champions in Year 10 girls rugby and its rugby results lower down the school.  

Many of Treviglas’ students excelled across the board, with impressive performances from Charley Van Koutrik, Joseph Surridge, Jack Rivers, Kelvin Griffiths, Lewis Kratky, Sophie Castley, Luke Deveson, Zoe Nichols, Lucy Wierzbicki and Kaitlyn Ryan who achieved A*s, or the equivalent grade eight, in English language, English literature, maths, art, business and music.
Charley said: “I’m not sure what I’m going to do career wise. I’m just trying to find my feet after a lot of hard work. I just want to go on to college at Treviglas.”

Michelle Dunleavy, acting headteacher, said: ‘I am so proud that we have successfully closed the gap between the progress of our disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged students. I thank all of our teaching staff who have worked so hard to support all of our students’ progress.  I am also pleased that our boys’ achievement was very similar to that of our girls, which isn’t the usual national picture.”

Headteacher Karen Ross added: “It was great to see such promising results in geography. This is a subject that has strongly grown in popularity with our students in recent years.

Our exciting foreign visits to countries such as Borneo and the impending and immensely popular Iceland field trip planned for October 2018 are bringing the subject alive for our students.  I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our families for all the support they have given us over the last five years.”

Theresa Frost, the chair of governors, said: “I am very proud of the young people at our college and their hard work that has gone into achieving these results. This hard work has not only been reflected in their GCSEs today but also in their many successes throughout the year.

“It is fantastic today to see our staff celebrating alongside students, sharing in their joy and excitement at planning for the next stage in their lives. We are all relishing the new challenges and changes that lie ahead for Treviglas Community College over the coming year.”
