From The Executive Principal
In May 2012, Tuxford became the first secondary school in Nottinghamshire to be judged by Ofsted to be outstanding for the second time.
Students have yet again performed to an exceptionally high level in their GCSE examinations in the Summer 2016. I am extremely proud of all students and congratulate them on their outstanding results. These results will now provide many wider opportunities for them to move onto their next level of education.
Students and staff have worked tremendously hard in preparing for the GCSE examinations and I am pleased to say this has certainly paid off. There are many individual successes at all levels with a significant number of students securing the top grades.
5 A*-Cs including English and Maths = 68%
A Level Results
I am extremely proud of all the students' results and can announce that they are the best ever A Level results at Tuxford Academy. Individual student’s results are stunning with nearly all students being accepted at their first choice university place. Both students and staff have worked incredibly hard to achieve these outstanding results and fully deserve the success and opportunities they bring.
Overall pass rate 100%. A*- Bs = 52%
These outstanding results are obtained because Tuxford is clearly focused on:
Delivering high quality teaching
Ensuring high standards of behaviour
Achieving outstanding examination results
Building an outstanding community spirit within the school
Responding to individual needs
Tuxford students are proud of their school and their achievements. They work hard, support each other and enjoy school. This was recognised by Ofsted in 2012 when they reported:
Students are courteous and considerate. They conduct themselves with commendable maturity in lessons and around the academy. Their positive attitudes are a key factor in their progress and achievement.
We intend to ensure Tuxford remains a top performing school. This will be facilitated by continuing to develop productive partnerships within the school and beyond. Working closely with parents and others will benefit our students and ensure Tuxford continues to flourish.
We have superb facilities available to our students and we have, in consultation with the students, developed these even further over the past 18 months. We intend to continue to invest in buildings and grounds hence creating a first class environment for our students.
Visitors to the school often comment on the positive atmosphere, the fantastic students and a strong sense of purpose that exists in the school. This is only possible by working in partnership with parents and we plan to strengthen these relationships even further. Tuxford Parents Teachers Association, of which all parents are members, gives tremendous support to the school and we hope you will be able to join in.
