We are thrilled to announce the success achieved by our dedicated students in the 2023 GCSE examinations. Students have achieved excellent results that reflect their hard work and commitment.
Christina Kane, Deputy Headteacher, expressed her pride in the students stating, "We are incredibly proud of the achievements of all of our students who have shown great resilience and determination to succeed. We mustn’t forget that this cohort of students has faced major disruptions to their education and grading has been adjusted this year to be more in line with 2019 outcomes, so our students have achieved superb results."
Furthermore, she highlighted, "Despite the drop in higher grades nationally, the Class of 2023 has really excelled, and their achievements will enable them to successfully progress to the next stage of their education. We are also delighted that so many of our students have chosen to continue their studies in our sixth form, Barrow Hall College."
