WEAVERHAM High School head teacher David Charlton has congratulated his students on their “superb” GCSE results.

Almost 80 per cent of students achieved the Government benchmark of five or more GCSEs at grade C or higher, and almost 70 per cent included C grades or higher in English and maths among their results.

“I am delighted our pupils have achieved such high GCSE grades,” said Mr Charlton.

“Our pupils achieved an A* or A grade in 30 per cent of the exams they sat this year.

“This shows their learning as being at the highest level, and sets a good basis as they make the progression to A-level.

“With more than 40 per cent of our pupils coming from outside our designated catchment zone it is good to see that pupils from a wide area have been successful.”

Connor Ellis from Kingsmead achieved an A* in every exam, while Jihan Chowdhury from Winnington and David Naylor from Comberbach secured A* grades in all but one subject, the other being an A.

In addition 13 pupils achieved 10 or more A* or A grades - Katie Bryer, Juliette Roucoule and twins Billy and Tommy Dean from Cuddington, Matthew Cadel, Daniel Clayton and Abigail Reed from Hartford, Batosz Karlinsky from Gorstage, Joe Heawood from Davenham, and Matthew Addison, Sandy MacIver, Hannah Peace and Chloe Vincent from Winsford.

“The results reflect the hard work of our pupils and members of staff over the past five years,” said Mr Charlton.
