Walkden High School’s Results – August 2015

Congratulations to our brilliant year 11, who collected their results recently. We are proud of each and every one of our students who worked incredibly hard over their five years here with us. We wish them all well in the next phase of their lives. Our dedicated staff have worked incredibly hard to see that pupils made good progress and these grades are a direct result of that dedication and effort.

English C+ 75% Maths C+ 69%

Our results have gone up 5% from last year with 60% of our students achieving 5+ A*-C including English and Maths.

These results, and our 0% NEET* figure, tell us that we are preparing our students incredibly well for their move to college or training. We work very hard to ensure that students from less privileged backgrounds make expected progress and these students have performed incredibly well this year too – we are so proud of them. Also, a huge number of our students gained strings of A* and A grades – always an amazing feat.
