TMS improves on its success

The Malling School has improved on the success of last year with some amazing results across the board. These unprecedented times have created challenges for students and teachers alike, but the continued dedication of all involved has meant that students are able to celebrate their GCSE results and continue in the educational journey. All students have secured a meaningful destination to continue their studies, with the TMS Sixth Form being over-subscribed for the first time. 
 
Although the GCSE results have been awarded in a different way this year, the students at TMS benefited from completing a full round of mock examinations for all subjects just before lockdown. Completed in exactly the same conditions that they would have faced in the official exams, the school were able to calculate grades with a high degree of accuracy. Students worked incredibly hard up until the school was forced to close and even continued working remotely until the news that exams were cancelled. This means that students are well placed to continue their studies or training from September.
 
Sixth Form students at The Malling School have continued to do well this year and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme has produced excellent results across the board. The highest performing subjects include Psychology, History, Maths and Film and these subjects all achieved above the global average for the subject. All other subjects achieved well and achieved positive value added scores, including BTEC Sport, Applied Science, the Extended Project Qualification, IB Biology, IB English, and BTEC Health & Social Care.
A number of students achieved top grades in a range of IB subjects and have secured places at universities including Canterbury Christchurch University and the University of Kent.
