On behalf of the staff and governors of Culcheth High School, I would like to congratulate our Year 11 students on their amazing GCSE exam results. 78% of students achieved 5 A*- C including English and Mathematics which is just 1% under the school record set in 2013 and an improvement of 16% on the 2015 figure. This year, 26% of all GCSE grades were A*/A. 79% of students achieved an A*-C in English and Mathematics, 78% achieved A*-C in two or more Science subjects and 46% of students achieved the Ebacc.
Culcheth High School is the top performing secondary school in Warrington on a number of these measures. In the climate of falling national GCSE pass rates and given the changes to education, assessment and examinations since 2013, it makes this year’s results even more pleasing.
There have been some excellent individual performances which reflect the hard work of the students in their GCSE studies; I would like to take this opportunity to thank the students for their efforts and wish them all the very best in their next steps. We are delighted and very proud of our students’ achievements and I would like to thank all the staff for their dedication, hard work and guidance for our students, which has supported this level of achievement. Finally, a big thank you to all the parents and guardians who have supported the students and school to help our young people achieve this level of success in their GCSE
Nearly every subject improved their results from 2015 with the vast majority of them significantly higher than the national averages. These results are provisional and will be shared fully once validated after re-marks have been submitted and may be subject to some changes.
