Students celebrate fantastic Sixth Form results
Sixth Form students are celebrating today after receiving fantastic results at Tauheedul Islam Girls’ High School (TIGHS).
99% of A Levels were completed at A*-C grade, with over four-fifths of grades (84%) completed at A*-B grades and almost two-fifths (38%) at the top A*-A grades.
96% of TIGHS students will leave the college having achieved at least three A Levels at A*-C grade. In vocational courses, 83% of learners completed an Extended Diploma at ‘DDD’ (Distinction) level.
These results are likely to place the Sixth Form amongst the top 5% of providers when league tables are published in January.
Many of the students will now progress to complete degree courses at universities across the country.

She reflected, ‘I am overwhelmed to have achieved the top grade in all three subjects and thrilled to be able to go on to study literature. It is humbling to reflect on the incredible support I have received.’
Hudaa Bax secured two A*s – in English Language and Sociology – as well as an ‘A’ grade in History. She is going on to study Arabic at the University of Oxford. She commented, ‘The results are amazing. I am so grateful to my teachers for pushing me every step of the way. Without them, and the devotion of my parents, I simply would not have achieved my dreams today.’
Aaisha Patel achieved an A* in Psychology as well as ‘A’ grades in both Biology and Chemistry. She will study Medicine at the University of Manchester. She praised the college’s ‘exceptional emphasis on character’ and ‘a unique atmosphere that is really supportive and collaborative’.
