An Outstanding Year - 2016
Another Great Year for Results
Outstanding Outcomes: – Best Ever!
Students at St Cuthbert’s Catholic High School are to be congratulated on record GCSE results, with over a quarter achieving A* or A grade and almost 82% achieving both English and Maths at grade C or above.
These grades follow on from last year’s excellent results and are our best ever, allowing our students a head start for the next stage of their learning journey, be it in education or the world of work.
These results complete an exceptional year for the school, following the OFSTED judgement of ‘outstanding’ in all areas and recognition by ‘The Real Schools Guide’ as one of the top two schools in the North East for attainment and achievement. Our Progress 8 score was 0.49 and our Attainment 8 score 58.9 with 35% of students achieving the EBacc.
Many congratulations to all our students. They stand as testament to the dedicated teaching professionals at St Cuthbert’s Catholic High School.
Mrs. Davison (head teacher) commented ‘To do well in the current education climate shifting sands is testimony of the dedication and tenacity of teachers and aspirational hard work of our students who are determined to do well’
‘Boys are always expected to be out performed by girls so to achieve the outcomes we have had at SCCHS is a magnificent accolade and one I am immensely proud of.’
Outstanding A Level outcomes at St Cuthbert’s Catholic High School
Congratulations to all our students who once again secured record results, continuing to build on the Ofsted accolade of “Outstanding”.
A third of all A levels results were graded A* – A with nearly two thirds graded A* – B. These record results are testament to the hard work of students and staff and have allowed our students to progress on to a range of highly competitive destinations. Congratulations to Elliot Luke and Matthew Seccombe who take up their places at Cambridge University, to Owen Collerton and Harry Mackenzie who will study Medicine at Bristol and Edinburgh, and to Matthew Quigley who will read Dentistry at Newcastle.
Forty six students achieved a minimum of three top grades in their courses with many winning scholarships at university on the basis of their academic performance.
St Cuthbert’s has been recognised as the top school in the north-east and one of the top one hundred schools in the country for placing students at prestigious Russell Group universities. This record will continue on the basis of these results.
Mrs Davison said, “Congratulations, first and foremost, to our students for the talent and commitment they have demonstrated in achieving these record results. The fact that a vast majority of our students gained A*-B grades this year is particularly significant as this gives them greater opportunities to study at the top universities than ever before. I wish once again to congratulate our teachers and support staff on their significant contribution to these tremendous results. I am delighted that all our young people are able to continue to progress to their next stage of education or training and make a significant contribution to our community. These are the results our learners worked so hard to attain and represent real achievement, giving them an excellent start in life. This is testament to dedicated teaching professionals.”
