The Grange School defies national trends for GCSE result
5:10pm Thursday 22nd August 2013 in News
THE Grange School in Runcorn has bucked national trends and achieved its best ever GCSE results this year.
Students are celebrating after 61 percent gained at least five or more A*-C grades, a seven percent improvement on last year’s results.
In addition, 44 percent of students received at least one top grade of A* or A.
Head of School, Mr Carney, said: “I am delighted for the students who have seen their hard work pay off. I wish them all well and would like to thank them for the contribution they have made to the school over the past five years.
“Overall, we have shattered records when nationally pass rates have fallen. This reflects the school's commitment to the young people of Runcorn and our determination to continue to improve.”
National results were also passed in core subjects such as English and maths.
Mr Carney added: “I would also like to pay tribute to the skill and commitment of our staff. Their hard work is aided by the strong support we have from the parents and carers of our students.
“With this solid foundation, growing success and constant high expectations The Grange will continue to be a great school where students succeed. With a new building and eight years of continuous improvement the future is bright for The Grange.”
