There has been much to celebrate at Helsby High School over the last week as first Year 13 and then Year 11 students have collected their A-Level and GCSE results.
Headteacher Martin Hill said, “Although mindful that some students are still waiting for their vocational qualification results, after such a difficult week we are delighted that so many students now have the results they deserve for all their hard work over the last two years.
“We have really enjoyed seeing our students again and couldn’t be prouder of such fantastic young people. We are proud of their commitment to their learning and all the success that commitment has brought, but equally proud of how they have managed having such an important time in their lives affected in the way it has been. Even during the much publicised difficulties of the last week they have shown a most impressive maturity,
calmness and resilience. Add these qualities to their talent and work ethic and it is clear why they have such very exciting futures ahead of them.
“We are so pleased that nearly all of our Year 13 students now have the successful grades they were on track for and have secured the university course, apprenticeship or job opportunity which they had planned and were looking forward to. We wish them all the
very best for the future.
“Developments over recent days inevitably meant that today’s Year 11 Results Day was a more upbeat occasion as students celebrated exceptionally well-deserved GCSE success. To see so many happy faces after the way their lives were turned upside down in March meant so much to staff and I am sure to parents too. We wish the students well for the future and are very much looking forward to continuing to work with many of them in the school’s Sixth Form next year.”
Many congratulations to the classes of 2020 for all their success. Very best wishes to Year 11 and 13 cohorts who will always have a very special place in the memory and illustrious history of the school.
