Pupils at Chesterfield High School are today celebrating their outstanding success at GCSE with 70% of pupils achieving GCSEs at 9 – 4 (including English and Mathematics) and over 86% of pupils achieving GCSEs at 9 – 4 in English and 71% in Maths. Notable other subject results were in Geography, PE, Dance, Art and Triple Sciences.
Acting Headteacher, Mr Kevin Sexton, congratulated the pupils on their hard work and well-deserved success:
“We are celebrating, yet again, a set of brilliant GCSE results and I am absolutely thrilled by them. I am delighted that pupils have achieved such a high pass rate in both English and Mathematics. These results represent a tremendous achievement for both pupils and staff who have worked incredibly hard to achieve this level of success. Huge thanks must go to our Year 11 parents and carers who have provided essential support to their children and continue to uphold the school’s ethos. I would also like to commend the efforts of all pastoral and support staff, who have provided the individual care and attention that has enabled so many of our pupils to meet and, in many cases, exceed their personal targets.
I congratulate all those pupils who have achieved their personal targets at GCSE and I look forward to welcoming these pupils to Sixth Form in order to build on this excellent foundation for A level studies.”
The school prides itself upon the superb pastoral care offered to pupils, the outstanding range of extra-curricular opportunities it provides and the opportunity for pupils to establish secure career pathways.
There is no doubt that results of our students’ A levels last week were another great success and some of the best in the area. Our year 13 cohort successfully achieved a 100% pass rate in all subjects studied, with learners achieving 38% of A-level grades at A*/D*-A and 50% at A*/D*-B. 100% of University applicants achieving a place at University.
To follow those results with these fantastic GCSE results is immensely satisfying and a true reward of the commitment displayed by pupils, parents, staff, governors and all associated with our high performing school.
