Dr Tony Evans, Headteacher said: “I would like to offer my warmest congratulations to the students. They have been a remarkable, motivated and committed group of young people who thoroughly deserve the outstanding academic success they have achieved.

"We are proud that as a truly inclusive school, students of all abilities have achieved a strongly positive set of results.

"It really feels that we have turned a corner at TDMS. The future is really exciting for everyone.

I am also thrilled that so many of our students are entrusting their future by staying at our Sixth Form."

2019 at Bowbrook House sees a 100% pass rate in Maths, English Literature, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Art and Physical Education. This is in addition to a record high in English of 93.5%.

Headmaster Chris Allen said: "Statistics do not tell the full story. The journey for many of our pupils is also about values, manners, confidence and self esteem alongside their academic achievements . It is, therefore, all the more satisfying when they achieve highly ‘on paper too. I am very proud of them all.”

At Pershore High School 77% of grades were awarded at 4+, 69% achieved 5 grades at 4+ and 25% of grades were achieved at 7+. The School’s Attainment 8 score is 49.4.

excellent GCSE results. They have been a very hardworking year group and this has paid off with excellent results. The new reformed GCSEs are significantly more challenging but our students have risen to that challenge and performed superbly. I would like to pay tribute to all of their teachers who have supported the students so well and helped them to achieve their excellent grades. We wish them every success in their futures either here in the Sixth Form at other local colleges or in apprenticeships.”

“As a school specialising in teaching children with dyslexia and additional learning needs, I am pleased with our headline figures but individual stories are always more important and there will be many pupils today who are thrilled with their results, having achieved their personal best. I am very proud of what this fantastic cohort of pupils has achieved today.”
