GCSE Results 2015

Yet another good year for Chatsmore Catholic High School Students.

For the third year in a row Chatsmore Catholic High School have achieved very good exam results above the national average. 70% of students gaining 5+ A*- C overall, and 63 % achieving 5+ A*- C including English and Maths and making good progress from their starting point in Y7 *. 100% of students who attended the school gained a GCSE – a testament to the hard work and commitment of the students and staff.

In year 10, where students take at least 3 GCSE option subjects, 77% have already achieved 3 + A*-C which is outstanding.

I am absolutely delighted with the results especially the significant progress students have made since joining the school in Year 7, and building on the good Ofsted report we received in January this year. Virtually all subjects have improved over the last 3 years and have achieved beyond the national average at GCSE, reflecting the strength of the school across the whole curriculum. By achieving so well, students are improving their life chances and future employability.

As a whole community, we should be proud of the achievements of our students, not just the progress they have made in attaining their GCSE exams, but also their contribution to the community and how they have grown as young people in their time with us. We also thank the parents, staff and governors who have worked unstintingly to care and support our young people throughout their years at Chatsmore Catholic High School.
