More than 80 per cent gain A* to C grades at high school

Middleton Guardian - - GCSE RESULTS -

STU­DENTS at Car­di­nal Lan­g­ley RC High School are cel­e­brat­ing an­other suc­cess­ful year.

Stu­dents achieved suc­cess in a wide range of sub­jects with more than 80 per cent achiev­ing A* to C grades in art, bi­ol­ogy, busi­ness stud­ies, chem­istry, French, BTEC health and so­cial care, his­tory, ICT, phys­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion, BTEC sport, tex­tiles and BTEC travel and tourism.

The school says so many sub­jects have con­tin­ued to per­form sig­nif­i­cantly above na­tional ex­pec­ta­tions, de­spite na­tion­wide changes this year.

The ma­jor­ity of sub­jects are still graded al­pha­bet­i­cally and in these sub­jects 70 per cent of all grades were A* to C with 20 per cent at A* or A.

The school also achieved an im­pres­sive 99 per cent over­all pass rate.

This year saw the in­tro­duc­tion of the new 1 to 9 grad­ing sys­tem for English and maths which means it isn’t pos­si­ble to make any di­rect com­par­i­son with pre­vi­ous years, how­ever 63 per cent of the grades were 4 or above, which is de­scribed by the gov­ern­ment as a new pass.

The top achiev­ers were Vanessa Luamba, Matthew Had­croft, Re­becca Mar­son, Emily White­head, Jodie Cullen, Aimee-Leigh Hal­l­i­day, Joshua Cor­co­ran and John Coogan.

Head­teacher An­drew Brid­son, said: “Our stu­dents have once again achieved some amaz­ing re­sults and thor­oughly de­serve their suc­cess.

“It is a pity that the na­tional head­lines are about gov­ern­ment changes rather than stu­dent per­for­mance but we are proud of how they have coped with the new cur­ricu­lum.”
