2016 Report

Numbers were up this year and a greater proportion of students took their lessons online as they were located in the Middle East, Africa and pother parts of Asia.

This year we held our IGCSE performance way above UK national average although there was a slight slip in the numbers passing with a C grade and a slight sip of A grades to B grades. Some of the slip was accounted for by English due to a higher number of non-native speakers attempting a public exam in the language for the first time.

At A-level we had a very diverse group of students with some very academic pupils who got lots of A grades and beat the UK national average and a number of less academic students who did very well to get the grades they did. We had a number of students join us who for one reason or another had left their schools in the UK but wanted to try and complete their education. This group did very well to go from failing to getting passes at A-level and proved you should never give up. Even with grade combinations such as DDE these weaker students have got themselves into university courses they are happy with and that is what matters most.

2015 Report

2015 saw a slight reduction in entries to both International GCSE and A-level examinations. More importantly we saw a change in the profile of students enrolling. 

As can be seen from the results, International GCSE candidates scored remarkably well. A huge 72% gained top grades and over 95% of the cohort gained pass grades of A-C, massively outstripping the UK average. This group was highly motivated and hard working and tended to be academically oriented students looking to get into UK schools for A-levels.

Our A-level results were down on previous years, although the percentage gaining top grades still beat the UK average. Many more of our A-level students this year were retaking exams or taking A-levels as an alternative to mainstream school options. They were mostly less academically oriented students who needed nevertheless to gain useful qualifications. ITS is completely non-selective and will sometimes see a cohort of students who are less likely to perform at the top level in exams.

What is important for us is that our A-level students went on to the destinations they desired and which were appropriate. From one of our top scoring students who gained a place at Cambridge, to a number of students aiming for middle tier universities to a student who needed to complete school but whose focus is the Rio Olympic games. To all of them, we offer congratulations and best wishes for wherever their lives next go.

2014 Report

IGCSE entries increased this year by almost 25%, and A-level entries rebounded to over 200.

In IGCSE 57% of ITS entries gained top grades. The cumulative A* to B was double the UK average although slightly down on our results last year. 76.5% passed their IGCSE.

At A-level, results for ITS students were much improved from 2012 [last year's cohort being much smaller]. Our A*/A rate was nearly double the UK average, and our A* to B was 10% better than the UK national average.

We continue to be non-selective, so year on year results can vary quite a lot depending on what type of students we have and what they are capable of. Most importantly, our students went on to a wide variety of universities and other destinations thanks to these results.

2013 Report

IGCSE entries remained steady, although we saw a smaller cohort entering for A-levels.

In IGCSE more than half of ITS entries gained top grades. The cumulative A* to B was 70% better than the UK average and an improvement of 10% on ITS results for 2012. 86% passed their IGCSE.

At A-level, results for ITS students were much improved from 2012. Our A*/A rate was double the UK average, and our A* to B was, at 76%, more than 40% better than the UK national average.

We are extremely happy with these results which reflect all of the hard work put in by students and teachers alike and, we think, support our philosophy and methodology of individualised and small-class learning.

2012 Report

Having finalised our official exam centre status in 2011, our first cohort of students graduated in 2012.

In IGCSE almost half of ITS entries gained top grades. The cumulative A* to B was 60% better than the UK average and a whopping 87% passed their IGCSE.

At A-level, results matched the UK national average in the A* to C range. However, we were particularly pleased that a full 1/3 of our entries got the top grade which was much better than the UK average.

Overall, these are excellent results for our first year, particularly given the fact that we are non-selective (we accept all ability levels to our schools and we do not drop students from exam entry unless they request a withdraw).
