She confirms that there has been an increased number of successful applications from students electing go to the top universities in the country. TDS Sixth is going from strength to strength, it is led by an outstanding and dedicated team who proudly say that this year our results have enabled a large number of students to accept places at Russell Group Universities. “Our A*/A have seen an increase this year from 14 students to 35, particularly in facilitating subjects such as Further Maths, Maths and History”. Students who took vocational subjects, particularly in Health and Social Care have seen a superb number of Distinction and Distinction* grades, reflecting a real dedication to enabling them to fully reach their potential.
