Excellent GCSE results again for Helsby High

HELSBY High School’s Year 11 students again celebrated excellent GCSE results, with over a quarter of all grades at Grade 7 or above – equivalent to Grade A or above in the former GCSE qualification.
More than two thirds of all grades were at a “strong pass” or above – Grade 5 or above.
Core subject attainment was a particular strength, with well over 80 per cent of students achieving a “standard pass” – Grade 4 or above – in English, nearly 80 per cent in Maths and three-quarters in both English and Maths.
Students of all abilities achieved success, with over 20 per cent of students achieving five or more top grades – Grade 7 or above – over half of all students achieving a top grade in at least one subject and 80 per cent of all students achieving standard passes in five or more of their GCSEs.
Key Stage 4 leader James Cooney said: “I would like to congratulate the Year 11 class of 2019 on their fabulous GCSE results. The students not only worked hard, but also contributed so much to the wider life of the school and their success is richly deserved. I would also like to thank all the parents, carers and wider families whose support of the students was such an important part of their success.”
Headteacher Martin Hill added: “It is wonderful to see the students’ success spread across so many students and also so many subjects. As well as success in English, Maths and Science, well above national average numbers of students also achieved GCSE success in Humanities and Modern Languages. Alongside this core academic curriculum success, students also achieved outstanding results in other areas of our broad curriculum offer such as business, computing, media and the important arts subjects.”
