Students, staff and parents at Tauheedul Islam Boys’ High School (TIBHS) are today celebrating exceptional GCSE results, placing the school as one of the highest achieving in the region and the country.
66% of students achieved GCSEs with grades 9-5 in English and Maths, compared to 43% nationally in 2018, whilst 32% achieved the English Baccalaureate. These results are expected to place the school within the top 5% of the highest achieving schools nationally.
The English Baccalaureate recognises achievement in a range of academic and challenging subjects. It is awarded to students who achieve grades 9-5 in English, Maths, Science, a modern foreign language and History or Geography. Nationally, around 17% of students achieve the English Baccalaureate.
Abdul Rafay Zahid achieved the top grade of 9 in ten subjects – as well as one grade 6. He commented: “I am really humbled that my friends and I have done so well. These exams were so challenging and stressful, so we are really thrilled to have secured excellent grades. We simply could not have achieved this without the support of our amazing teachers.”
Sufian Naseer achieved the top grade of 9 in six subjects – as well as three grade 8’s, and two grade 7’s. He commented: “I feel incredibly blessed to have studied at TIBHS. I owe everything to my teachers and my parents.”
Kashif Hussain achieved eight GCSEs with grades 6 to 8 despite having to endure circumstances that would have challenged the most determined students. He commented “I am very overwhelmed with my fantastic results. In the lead up to the exams, I was hospitalised and had to stay in hospital for seven days. I spent many days in and out of hospital for appointments. This caused me immense mental, emotional and physical stress; so much so that sitting on a chair during the exam was very difficult. Despite this, through the grace of the Almighty, I was able to achieve some amazing results.
Majid Ditta, Principal at TIBHS, said “We are pleased with these results; they are a true testament to our students’ hard work and dedication. We wish all of our students every success for the future”.
(Mufti) Hamid Patel, Chief Executive of Star Academies, reflected on the achievements and underlined the wider mission of the school:
“These really are life-changing outcomes for our amazing students. Our parents, staff and students really make us proud. As well as securing fantastic grades, we want our young men to have excellent character, be responsible citizens and serve their communities passionately.”
