On behalf of the whole Tytherington community, I would like to congratulate the Sixth Form class of 2023 for their phenomenal achievements. Despite the significant disruption to their GCSE experience, this cohort of students have performed incredibly well and are a great example of what can be achieved through hard work, grit, and determination.
In line with the other local schools, we will not be releasing headline measures this year, although we are celebrating another set of strong results. We are particularly proud of the progress students have made in relation to their starting points.
The students below achieved three or more A*/A/Distinction* grades and I would like to take this opportunity to formally congratulate them on their exceptional achievement:

A number of students achieved two A*/A/Distinction* grades: Charley Moffat, Katie Leake, Lukas Brookes-Tee, Sean Yusuf Short, Simon Hiriart, William Richardson, and Zahra Cauldwell.
There are so many students I could single out for praise, but I would like to highlight the following who exemplify the effort and achievement of the entire year group:
- Edward Mackintosh, William Stewart and William Richardson achieved the highest value-added scores in the Sixth Form. This is based on progress made from GCSE. The three students have all gained places at the University of Sheffield. Edward will be reading Material Sciences and Engineering. William Stewart will be reading Mathematics and William Richardson will be studying Mechanical Engineering.
- Oliver Gaunt has secured a place to read Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge.
Head of Sixth Form, Ms Roe, said: “Well done to the class of 2023. I am extremely proud of the determination and resilience that our students have demonstrated this year. I know they leave us with many fond memories of their time at Tytherington and a great foundation from which they will continue to grow in the years ahead.”
Headteacher, Mr Botwe said: “I am delighted with the progress the students have made during their time at Tytherington and I am excited to see what they will achieve in the future. You will know that we are very proud of the comprehensive and inclusive culture in our Sixth Form and it is very satisfying for us to know that we have the full range of students moving on to top universities, apprenticeships, and the world of work. Their success has been down to their hard work combined with the passion of our staff. Well done!”
