Helsby High School students have yet again done themselves, their parents, and the school, proud by achieving an excellent set of GCSE results this summer.
Provisional analysis indicates that 80% of students have achieved at least 5 A*-C grades, which is the highest performance in recent years. It is very pleasing to note that over 99.5% of students achieved at least five A*-G grades.
Mr John Dowler, Headteacher, praised students and recognised the contribution made by Helsby’s staff and the students’ families, “We are delighted that the hard work of our students has been reflected in the results that they have achieved. There have been many outstanding performances in both achievement and progress. A fantastic number of students achieved at the very highest level. Equally pleasing is the number of students who have made excellent progress since joining Helsby High School and have achieved a set of GCSE results beyond expectation. I would like to thank our staff for their commitment and dedication, and the students’ families for their support. We would like to wish the class of 2016 well for the future.”
Particular congratulations go to the 45 students who have achieved at least 5 A* or A grades, and the 22 students who achieved 8 or more A* or A grades, in their examinations.
