Stocksbridge High School are delighted that 62% of its Y11 students achieved 5 or more A*-C grade GCSE passes, a second successive year of improvement which places the school above the national average. The performance of our students in English was particularly strong with 74% gaining grades A*-C. The proportion of children gaining the top grades and the overall pass rate were also up on last year.
While we are very pleased that the school as a whole has continued to move forward we are most pleased for the individual students. Today is their day and it was great to see lots of smiles as students collected their results. There are many individual success stories which children of all abilities matching or going beyond their greatest expectations.
Headteacher Steve Davies said ‘We are delighted to celebrate the achievements of our students. Every grade reflects the hard work and commitment of the students and the excellent support and teaching that they have received from our staff. We wish all of our young people the very best as they move onto to the next stage in their lives.’
