A bumper year for examination results at Crossley Heath

Staff, students, former students and parents of Crossley Health School celebrated a year of success at their annual awards ceremony.

Awards were presented to both Year 11 and Year 13 students by Head Teacher, Wendy Moffat who stated that the results were the best the school had achieved to date.

Virtually 100 per cent of Year 11 students achieved 5 A*-C grades; 28 per cent were A*, 63 per cent A*-A, 92 per cent of students achieved at least 5 A* - B grades and 55 per cent achieved at least 8 A* - A grades.

Results in Year 13 were equally impressive, with virtually a 100 per cent pass rate; 70 per cent of all A Level grades were A*-B, 25 per cent were A and 14 per cent were A*. A third of the students achieved at least 3 A Levels at A or A*.

Mrs Moffat said: “Our students in Years 11 and 13 have achieved outstanding results. At a time when the government is constantly changing the educational goalposts and making it harder for children to achieve top grades, I am particularly proud that teachers and students here have worked even harder to ensure that standards are not just maintained but exceeded.

“Our young people at Crossley Health will be the doctors, architects, writers, pilots, engineers, scientists and designers of the future. I know that all of our students will make a difference in smaller and larger ways. Crossley Heath may be a historic landmark, but its students are its beating heart.”

Not only has this been a bumper year for exam results, a new state-of-the-art sixth form centre opened its doors in November, added Mrs Moffat.

“This is a wonderful investment for future generations and I would like to thank the generosity of those groups and individuals who contrinuted to our fundraising efforts.”
