We have rigorous target setting and performance management systems for all of our activities. These are kept under constant review by the Senior Leadership Team and Governing Body. This rigorous approach makes sure the high standards we have come to expect at TIGHS are constantly maintained and enhanced.

Each student has a personalised learning plan designed to challenge and support them. Behaviour and attendance are monitored carefully. Early action is taken in any areas where a pupil’s progress is causing concern.

Parents also have an important role to play in ensuring their daughters achieve their potential. They receive half-termly report cards and are required to attend performance review meetings which will cover their daughters’ academic progress, attendance and behaviour. The sessions also set challenging, but realistic, targets for the girls.

Our GCSE exam results are outstanding. In each of the past few years, the Government announced that Tauheedul is:

  • One of the best schools in the country for working with children who leave primary school with below-average results.
  • One of the best schools in the country for working with children from disadvantaged backgrounds.

In each of the past four years, the school has been ranked by the Government as one of the top 10  schools in the country for the progress that our students make compared to similar students in other schools across the country.

It is a measure to that shows where pupils have secured a C/5 grade or above across the core of academic subjects at key stage 4.
