59% 5A*- C including English and Math
72% of students gaining 5A*- C overall
This has been another very good year’s exam results for Chatsmore Catholic High School with 72% of students gaining 5 A*- C overall, and 59% 5 A*- C including English and Math; this is an increase of 16% on last year and with strong value added scores. 98% of students who attended the school gained a GCSE, a testament to the hard work and commitment of the students and staff. I would like to congratulate all concerned on their achievement and hard work.
I am delighted with the results, especially the significant progress students have made since joining the school in Year 7, and am particularly pleased for the English and Math teams who, after the national debacle of last summer, have shown great resilience and character in helping their students achieve excellent results this year. As an Arts College I am impressed with 100% of students passing Drama, 88% pass rate in Art, and 81% in Music. However, achievements were not just confined to the Arts; Physics, Chemistry and Biology all achieved 100%, Information Communication Technology 100%, Graphics Technology 90%, and PE/Sports Studies 100%. Virtually all subjects have improved over the last 3 years and have achieved well beyond the national average, reflecting the real strength of the school across the whole curriculum.
As a whole community, we should be proud of the achievements of our students, not just their GCSE exams, but also their contribution to the community and how they have grown as young people in their time at Chatsmore. I would like to thank the staff, parents and governors who have worked unstintingly to care and support them throughout their years here.
