TAMESIDE secondary schools have seen their third consecutive year of improvement in the GCSE results published yesterday. Provisional figures indicate a 2% increase in the proportion of Tameside pupils achieving five good GCSEs (grades A*-C) including English and Maths compared to the 2015 results.
Last year’s increase in GCSE performance put Tameside a couple of points ahead of the national average – so it is pleasing to see Tameside pupils have further improved the results again this year from an already strong position.
The majority of Tameside schools have improved on last year’s figures, with some schools seeing huge improvements of more than 10% – Copley Academy, Hyde Community College, and West Hill School.
This is testament to the pupil’s hard work and the support received from all our teachers, support staff, parents and mentors.
