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. 74% of students achieved 5 ‘Standard Passes (9-4)’ including English and Mathematics. This year, 28% of all GCSE grades were A*-A/7-9. Only 732 students across the UK achieved the highest new Grade 9 in seven or more subjects; three of them came from Culcheth High School! 79% of students achieved a ‘Standard Pass (Grade 4-9)’ in English and Mathematics and 56% of students achieved a ‘Strong Pass (Grade 5-9)’ in English and Mathematics.
In the changing climate of new GCSE specifications and grades which has resulted in a higher level of rigour with the new content, assessment and examinations, 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 and hard work which has supported this level of achievement. Finally, a big thank you to all the parents and carers who have supported the students and school to help our young people achieve this level of success in their GCSE examinations.
