High-achieving students from Tauheedul Islam Girls’ High School and Sixth Form College are celebrating A-Level success after overcoming two years of pandemic disruption.

Pupils and staff from across the school faced a turbulent two years as they worked to counter disruption caused by periods of self-isolation and illness.

Exams were completed for the first time in three years following their cancellation in 2020 and 2021.

Asia Ali, Head Sixth Form at TIGHS, praised students who she said had worked with incredible fortitude to achieve fantastic results.

She said: “The past two years have presented challenge after challenge to the students and staff at our sixth form. Yet despite these difficulties, our students dug deep to make steadfast progress and realise their dreams.

“Our students’ success owes a great deal to their resilience, character and perseverance; all of which are traits we hope will serve them well throughout their lives.

“Congratulations to all our students and a heartfelt thank you to all our families and staff without whom none of the achievements we celebrate today would be possible.”

Today (Thursday, August 18), students are celebrating their achievements as they collect their results and take the next steps towards their dream careers. 92 per cent of students leave the college having achieved at least three A Levels at A* to C, with 71 per cent having secured at least three A* to B grades.

Almost two-fifths (36 per cent) completed at least three subjects with an A* or A grade.

In vocational courses, almost all learners (94 per cent) completed an Extended Diploma at ‘DDD’ (Distinction) level or better with almost two-thirds securing the highest grade D*D*D*.

These results mean that the TIGHS sixth form is likely to be ranked amongst the best in the country when national league tables are published in January.

Many of the students will now progress to completing degree courses at universities across the country.
