Going beyond in Summer 2016 Examinations!
Northfleet Technology College is celebrating yet another year of recording breaking results across the board.
Phenomenal success has been achieved at Key Stage 4 with 69% of our boys gaining A*-C in both English and maths GCSE. English results were again exceptional with 94% making expected progress and 63% making more than expected progress. In maths 78% made expected progress and 32% made above this.
The numbers achieving the higher grades continues to improve with 28 A* grades, 146 A*-A grades and a massive 25% of students achieved at least 5A*-B.
These results will all be well above national levels and buck the trend of boys’ poor performance nationally.
Key Stage 5 results improved in all four areas (A level, Academic, Applied and Tech Level). This underlines the importance that the school places upon providing a relevant curriculum for all its learners. The increased numbers of students studying the International Baccalaureate Career-related programme has supported these successes. There have been continued improvements in our vocational courses which now average the highest grade of Distinction*. Contrary to national reports of poor performance our English and mathematic resits continue to show good progress.
Jane Partridge, Headteacher of Northfleet Technology College commented that, ‘We are extremely proud of the achievements of all of our community. As ever, our students have responded to the school ethos with determination and have ‘gone beyond’ to aspire to achieve the highest grades. These excellent results are built on the strong relationships across the school and the outstanding commitment of all staff members and parents.’
The Sports Awards Evening was a great success with over 250 people in attendance and the night gave the students and coaches the opportunity to celebrate their success in Sport at NTC in the 2015-16 season. Awards were given for each team in Basketball, Football, Rugby and Outdoor education, the coaches for each team selected their Most Valuable Player, Most Improved Player and Team Player of the year. Also the coveted Junior Sportsman of the year, Senior Sportsman of the year and team of the year awards were given out with Levon awarded the Senior Sportsman of the year for his achievements in martial Arts. While Harry was awarded the Junior Sportsman of the year for his overall performances in the basketball and football, plus his attitude and dedication to Sport at NTC. The Team of the year was won by Northfleet Technology Basketball Academy for Finishing 3rd overall in the country.
The evening was a great success and we would like to thank the coaches, players and parents for making the night a special one. We look forward to seeing you all gain next year for the 2017 Sports Awards Evening.
