Tytherington School is celebrating another year of record-breaking results.

These results include superb performance at the highest grades, as 31percent of all exam entries received A* or A grades, including 9pc at A*.

An excellent 63pc of all exam entries were graded A*-B and 87pc A*-C.

The pass rate remains at 100pc.

New Headteacher, Mr Emmanuel Botwe, said: “The hard work of our students, the commitment of our staff and their shared passion for learning has resulted in another year of excellent A level results for our outstanding 6th Form.

“I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all of our young people on their deserved success; we wish you all the very best for the future and hope that you will stay in touch with us”.

Among the school’s top performers, with 3 A*, were Eliza Dickie and Helen Stephens. Also achieving straight A/A* grades were Lucy Atkinson, Edward Caunt, Rosalind Daniels, Daniel Gayne, Alexander Gheorghiu, Matei Gheorghiu, Chelsea Griffin, Rebecca O’Brien, Adam Phillips, Matthew Purslow, Samuel Smith and Sarah Wallace.

The school is also celebrating outstanding results for students studying BTEC courses. 86pc of students on either BTEC National Extended Diploma in Sport or the BTEC National Award in Finance achieved distinctions or distinctions starred.

Many Tytherington students are now anticipating the start of their university careers.

Maintaining Tytherington’s record of students gaining places at Oxford and Cambridge Universities, Daniel Gayne has secured a place to read Human, Social and Political Sciences at Emmanuel College, Cambridge; Eliza Dickie will read Physics at Wadham College, Oxford; Rebecca O’Brien will read Law at Pembroke College, Oxford; and Sarah Wallace will read Spanish and Linguistics at St Catherine’s, Oxford. A fifth student, Matthew Purslow, was also offered a place at Oxford University but has chosen instead to read Geophysics and Meteorology at Edinburgh University.

Many others have gained places at the prestigious Russell Group universities, including Helen Stephens who has gained a place to study Medicine at Birmingham, Edward Caunt to study Geophysics at Imperial College, London, and Matei Gheorghiu to study Philosophy at UCL.

Tytherington is also very proud of students who have gained places on highly competitive Apprenticeship programmes, with four students gaining Apprenticeships with AstraZeneca including Ryan Coram who will be pursuing a sponsored degree course in Information Technology alongside paid employment.

Also celebrating success were two sets of twins. Alexander and Matei Gheorghiu arrived in the UK aged nine from Sweden. They both found it difficult to contend with a new language to begin with. However, they both achieved spectacular results at A Level: Matei has achieved two A*s and one A, and is going to read Philosophy at UCL; Alex is off to study Mathematics at Warwick University, having achieved two As and one A*.

Chelsea and Sasha Griffin were also able to celebrate success. Sasha, having achieved two As and a B, is off to study Creative Writing at Bangor University, and Chelsea with three grade As will be studying Game Art at St Helen’s. Video games have been a passion of hers from a very young age, and this, coupled with her love of Art, have led her to choose this course of study.

This will be the first time they will be apart from each other and, although this is a daunting prospect, they are excited about the independence and new challenges this will bring. Their English teacher said: “It has been a real privilege to teach these two extraordinary young ladies; they thoroughly deserve their excellent results.” Both girls were “over the moon” with their results. They also praised the support they had received from staff at the school.

Two Career Academy students studying Business Studies and Finance, Zainab Tejan-Cole and Rebecca Kilday, each achieved grades A and B in Double Award Business A Level, and a Distinction starred in Finance. These results were significantly higher than their target grades, demonstrating the outstanding progress they made in the Sixth Form. During her time in the Sixth Form Zainab has achieved a range of successes, including winning the Young Enterprise Student of the Year award for the North West, being elected as a member of the Cheshire Youth Parliament and winning the Career Academy student of the Year Award for the North West.
