THAMESVIEW SCHOOL HAS OUTSTANDING YEAR 13 RESULTS!
Despite the uncertain times that are 2020, Year 13 students at Thamesview School can celebrate outstanding results with an amazing 100% pass rate for all students that undertook the IBCP programme. This qualification is a blend of academic IB subjects and vocational BTECs which carry the equivalent of 3 A Levels. The most noticeable successes were with top student, Nga Sieni who received the equivalent of two A*s and one A at A level and is now off to Greenwich University to study International Business. Alex Austin received the equivalent of one A* and two A’s and will study Film and Screen Arts at Plymouth College of Art. Jamie Ward also received the equivalent of one A* and two A’s and will study Law at Canterbury Christchurch University. Jamie Rafferty who was awarded the equivalent of one A* and two B’s will study Digital Music and Sound Arts at Brighton University Molly Maxted who received the equivalent of two A*s will study Law at Greenwich University. Subjects of particular note are Business BTEC where students achieved an amazing six Distinction*, 11 Distinctions and 5 Merits (the equivalent to A* to C at A Level) and IB Higher Level English Language and Literature where students achieved four Grade 6s, four Grade 5s and two Grade 4s (also the equivalent of A* to C at A level). Mr George Rorke, Headteacher, said “We are immensely proud of our young people and their success. These results are a testament to the hard work and dedication of both the students and the staff. Thamesview Sixth Form has gone from strength to strength over the last 2 years and we are looking forward to another record breaking year next year.”
World Book Day - Well done Year 7 and 8!
The Y7 and Y8 students were given the challenge to read 10 million words in just 11 days (24th February to 5th March) for World Book Day. To give you a rough idea, that’s the equivalent of reading War and Peace twice every day. The students weren’t too sure to begin with but as the numbers started going up and they were quickly hitting a new million milestone every day, they soon got excited. Yesterday during period 4 the Y7s who struggle the most with their reading pushed us over the 10 million word goal. They got so excited that they had done it. They left the library full of pride, confidence and excitement. Well done to all Y7 and 8 students!
February Half Term School Sessions
Ensuring Year 11 students are successful in their GCSE studies is a priority for us at Thamesview School and to support this there will be a programme of half term school sessions to further support students in attaining the best possible outcomes in their examinations. Please note the sessions are open to all students, however if the class teacher feels it is important that your child attends then you will receive a separate letter from the subject leader/director of the respective department advising you so.

I would like to thank you in advance for working with the school and encouraging your child to attend the sessions that they can during the half term break.
