Following the government announcement that Centre Assessed Grades will be used for this year's GCSE cohort, Tring Park School would like to congratulate our pupils on the results they have received.

Students were unable to take their exams this year because of the Covid-19 pandemic with teachers instead predicting how they would have performed.

Principal Stefan Anderson, said: "I am proud of our pupils' GCSE results. They have had to cope with an unprecedented situation and I have been impressed by the resilience they have shown throughout this time.
