I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to you and the other members of staff who accompanied the children on the Ardres trip.
My daughter had a wonderful time and enjoyed every moment of what sounds like a well organised and fun week of activities.
She returned home looking healthy and happy and full of news about her week away.

Thursday 25 August: GCSE Results Day. Year 11 collect at 10:00, Thurston Sixth, Beyton Campus
Examination results are available only from the Thurston Sixth, Beyton Campus at the time shown.
Please note that if students cannot collect their results in person they can either leave a large self-addressed envelope with the appropriate postage with Mr Smith, Examinations Officer, or they can allow someone else to collect their results for them. Anyone collecting on their behalf must have a signed letter from them giving that person permission to pick up the results. The person picking up the results must also have a form of photo ID (passport, driving licence).

Yesterday, we were delighted to welcome Year 12 and 13 students to our Beyton Campus, to receive their AS and Advanced-Level examination results. The Year 13 students were our first cohort to have completed their entire Advanced-Level studies at Thurston Sixth: Beyton Campus, so, as you can imagine, we were particularly fascinated to find out how they had done.
I am thrilled to report that our Year 13 students made significantly more progress than previous year groups during their time at Thurston Sixth. 146 students sat a total of 426 examinations. The pass rate for those examinations was 99%. Furthermore, 80% passed with a grade A*-C; 50% passed with a grade A*-B; 21% passed with a grade A*-A and 7% passed with a grade A*.
These statistics represent huge success and are a testament to the hard work and determination of our students and the teachers and staff who have supported them.
Although we always delight in the success of students of all abilities, I would like to recognise the exceptional accomplishment of 16 students (11% of the cohort), who achieved the equivalent of three grade As or better.
Examination results provide the passport to the next step in our students’ lives. We were equally elated, therefore, to hear that 93% of our students gained entry into their first or second choice university.
I am sure you will wish to join me in congratulating parents, staff and especially our students, for these fantastic results.
