Christleton Students celebrate an excellent set of GCSE results!
(Posted on 23/08/18)
Christleton High School’s students are celebrating once again after receiving another set of excellent GCSE results.
83% of students in Year 11 achieved 9 - 4 grades in English and 78% in Mathematics. 75% of the Year group also achieved 5 or more standard passes.
Sheila Lister, Assistant Headteacher said “Given the curriculum changes and the grade system moving from letters (A*-G) to numerical grades (9-1) many of our students and parents were naturally concerned.
Throughout the last two years, we have increasingly focussed on identifying and meeting specific individual needs. I firmly believe that this approach has borne real success in their achievements which will bode well for the next stage in their education, work or apprenticeships.
The school is delighted for all of its students who have worked hard to achieve their success. 21 students achieved the outstanding result of five or more top grades (9-8) with 10 students impressively achieving seven or more. These include Charlotte McConnell who gained an exceptional ten top grades including eight grade 9s. Jude Jones and Leah Parry both notably achieved the majority of their results at grade 9, whilst Lucy Peterson gained eight 9-8 grades.”
Commenting on the results, Damian Stenhouse, Headteacher said:
“Once again, I am incredibly proud of our students’ success and on behalf of the Staff and Governors at Christleton High School, I would like to congratulate them. These continue to be particularly challenging times for young people and it is inspiring to see how committed and hardworking they are.
Naturally, we wish all of our students every success in their future studies and careers and, following on from our successful Year 12 Taster Day at the end of last term. Head of Sixth Form, Mike Cosstick, is looking forward to welcoming not only the substantial number of our Year 11 students who will be returning to our Sixth Form on September 4th, but also those students who will be joining us for the first time from other schools.”
