TIBHS named in top 10 best performing schools in the country

We are delighted that Tauheedul Islam Boys’ High School (TIBHS) has been named as one of the top performing secondary schools in the country in the national Key Stage 4 performance tables.

New GCSE performance tables published by the Department for Education today show the ‘Progress 8’ scores for each school in England. Progress 8 measures the progress of every pupil in a school from age 11 to GCSE across eight subjects, including key academic subjects.

Our school was placed 8th nationally in the Progress 8 measurement with a P8 score of 1.35 (compared to a national average of -0.02). A grade 5 or above was reached by 77% of the boys in GCSE English and maths (compared to 41.4% locally and 40.2% nationally) and 99% of our pupils were entered into the English Baccalaureate by taking English, maths, sciences, a language and either history or geography compared to 35.7% locally and 35.2% nationally. Our average EBacc points score was 5.64 compared to compared to 3.95 locally and 4.04 of state schools nationally. The school’s Attainment 8 score of 62.1 for pupils based on how well pupils have performed in up to eight qualifications, which include English, maths, three English Baccalaureate qualifications – including sciences, computer science, history, geography and languages, and three other additional approved qualifications is also well above the local average of 45.8 and national state school average of 44.5.

Majid Ditta, Principal of TIBHS, said:

“These exceptional outcomes prove total commitment of our staff to ensuring every single student achieves their full potential. This is a true accolade for the pupils, parents, staff, governors and Star Academies.”

Star Academies, the multi-academy trust which runs TIBHS, also celebrated after being named the top performing multi-academy trust (MAT) in England. The results of five secondary schools operated by Star Academies are in the top 70 nationally (top 5% of all schools), with four schools in the top 12 and TIGHS in Blackburn in first place nationally.

Mufti Hamid Patel CBE, Chief Executive of Star Academies, explained:

“As exams became much tougher in several subjects this year, the Government figures show that we are continuing to achieve amazing results with our students – regardless of their prior ability and background. What’s really impressive is that some of our most vulnerable learners – those who have performed poorly at primary school and those who are in care or from low-income families – have achieved so well. That shows how we are really transforming lives.”
