‘I’ve worked really hard for these grades over the last few years and I am so glad that my hardwork has been recognised. The teachers at my school have very high expectations and I always knew that they would help me get to the next level’.

The hard work and dedication shown by Tayyab Mahmood, who is Hearing Impaired, paid off as he secured an outstanding set of results. Tayyab achieved two grade 8s, one grade 7, four grade 6s and one grade 5. Tayyab reflected on his personal journey:
“If you had told me at the beginning of Year 7 that I would go on to achieve these results or to develop the confidence that I have, I would never have believed you. I’m just so grateful to all the teachers, staff and my parents and friends for helping me to grow and develop into the person I am today”.

Another pupil who battled health issues to complete his studies was Uzair Patel. Despite his eyesight deteriorating significantly while studying for his GCSEs, Uzair overcame the challenges to achieve three Grade 8s, four grade 7s and one grade 6. He has worked hard to overcome the challenges he has faced academically alongside playing an instrumental role in the school’s social action project – Uniformity. Uzair is looking forward to a future in Cyber Security.
At the school, 81% of students achieved GCSEs with grades 9-5 in English and Maths, whilst 53% achieved the English Baccalaureate. The average grade (points score) in the English Baccalaureate subjects was 5.83.
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 a tenth of students achieve the English Baccalaureate and the average grade in the English Baccalaureate subjects is 4.0.
Over the past few years, new tougher exams have been introduced for all GCSE subjects – assessed using a 9-1 grading system. A grade ‘5’ or higher is considered a ‘strong pass’ whilst a grade ‘4’ is considered a ‘standard pass’.
Majid Ditta, Principal, reflected on the achievements and underlined the wider mission of the school,
‘I am extremely proud and humbled with all the efforts, commitment and hard work all of our young men demonstrated throughout their schooling. It was a shame that their education journey was cut short due to the school closures in March 2020, prematurely ending all of the key highlights, which pupils experience before they move on to college. However, I am delighted with the exceptional performance of the boys and the recognition that the results in themselves are fantastic and justifiable deserved. Thank you to the pupil, parents, staff and other stakeholders for their support and efforts to secure the grades.’
The academic achievements at the school are part of several accolades the school has received over the past few years.
The league tables also reported that, for each of the past four years, TIBHS is one of the best schools in the country for achievement by students with low prior achievement at primary school and those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
In March 2014, the school was given an ‘outstanding’ rating by Ofsted inspectors. In their inspection report, Ofsted praised ‘exceptional progress’ and ‘outstanding leadership’ at the school.
