In Summer 2020 the GCSE grades issued to pupils were based upon centre assessed grades.

An objective and rigorous process was followed in order to ensure that all pupils were awarded a grade that reflected their performance throughout their GCSE course up until school closure on 20th March 2020.


Results Summer 2019

Congratulations to the class of 2019 on their GCSE examination results and our dedicated staff (teaching and support) who have once again, worked so hard to ensure as many pupils as possible have achieved the very best results they could. We would also like to sincerely thank parents, governors, Lancashire LA and Salford Diocese for their continued support.

Our initial analysis suggests that, regarding the overall key government school performance measures, we have made significant improvements in attainment and progress across the curriculum. Overall the 2019 results are the best results in the last 3 years with a significant number of performance measures now showing a 3 year improving trend.

The number of top grades has increased significantly this summer with 16 grade 9’s, 31 grade 8’s and 83 grade 7’s across a range of subjects. English, maths, languages, performing arts, drama, physical education, religious education and health and social care appear to have performed strongly with significant improvements also evident in art, religious education, science and geography.

This summer sees all GCSE or equivalent qualifications moving to the 9-1 grading system. We are extremely proud that 9 pupils were awarded at least one grade 9 across a variety of subjects including: English literature, maths, science, French, Italian, Polish, history and religious education. Eliza Raza was awarded a grade 9 in a total of 6 subjects (English literature, French, Italian, religious education, and combined science) and a further 3 grade 8’s (English language, maths and computer science). This is an exceptional achievement and will place Eliza as one of the highest achievers in 2019 both locally and nationally.

As a school, we are extremely proud of the recent improvements that we have made in all aspects. The 2019 GCSE results very much reflect these improvements and as a school we are confident that we will continue to improve in the future.
