Congratulations to the class of 2016. Our results prove we are an academic comprehensive. 

Our fantastic students have achieved a 78% pass rate in English and a 62% pass rate in Mathematics.

60% of our pupils gained both English and Maths at C or above.

We entered 76% of our pupils for the academically challenging English Baccalaureate with 28% of our pupils achieving it – way above the national average.

The proportion of pupils gaining the highest grades of A* and A was 16% which reflects the high quality teaching our pupils receive and the work and effort our pupils put in.

"Our year 11 are an amazing group of young people. They all worked hard and these results are their just reward. In a year where it got harder again to get a C grade in maths, these results are brilliant. What is also worth celebrating is that 1 in every 8 pupils left with 5 or more A & A* grades which is a staggering achievement. Six of our pupils left with 10 A & A* grades. We knew our students were Walkden STARS and these results prove it."
Mr Lennox, Headteacher

"I would like to thank all the staff and pupils who have worked hard to achieve these results."
Mr Aled Owen, Chair of Governors.
