 Year 11 students at The Knights Templar School collected their results today and they should be delighted with their success.  These were the first group of students in the country to have taken the new and more demanding GCSEs in English Language, English Literature and Mathematics and many students have exceeded our expectations in these any many other courses. Teachers and students have had to adapt to all the challenges of new courses and balance the continued pressures of all their other subjects as well.

 Some of our outstanding individual student achievements this year were:

 Headteacher Tim Litchfield said:

 “My warmest congratulations extend to all of our students whose dedication and commitment to their studies has been rewarded. I am sure all students and parents will join with me in thanking our exceptional staff for their continued dedication to ensuring each student has the help, support and instruction needed to help them do as well as they possibly can. 

As we can see there have been some exceptional individual performances and special mention must go to Sasha Mills who taught herself GCSE Law in one year and gained an A grade and Gabriel Taylor (Year 9 student) gained full marks in every paper for his GCSE Music. Sasha and Ben Buky also taught GCSE astronomy to a small group of their peers with amazing success.

I am so proud of all our students.  They are a credit to themselves and their parents and are a testament to the remarkable teaching and pastoral support we provide here at Knights Templar”

 Andy Allman, Head of Year 11, added:

“It has been my absolute pleasure to work with these students during their time at Knights Templar School - no one likes being the guinea pig, but they have coped with the new changes exceptionally well. This cohort are a remarkable group of young people, and I am proud to be associated with them. Many students have continued to exceed even my highest hopes, and I forever wish them well on their future endeavours.”
