PUPILS and staff at Weaverham High School are celebrating the third successive year of more than 80% of pupils achieving 5 or more higher grade GCSEs.

For only the second time in the history of the school, two pupils in the same year group achieved the highest possible A* grade in every GCSE exam they sat. Emily Adams from Hartford and Laura Bielinski from Weaverham both achieved the outstanding feat of 11 GCSEs all at A* grade. In achieving this feat Emily equalled the achievements of her brother Tom who attained identical grades 3 years ago. Once again more than 30% of the GCSE grades attained at the school were at A* or A grade. In addition to Emily and Laura, Grace Astbury, Lisa Bone and Kirsty Clarke from Weaverham; Matthew Metcalfe from Acton Bridge; Lise Bouckley from Sandiway and Ella Smallwood from Cuddington all achieved 10 or more GCSEs at A* or A grade.
Headteacher, David Charlton, said “These fantastic results reflect the hard work and dedication of our pupils. To achieve so many high grade GCSEs is not something that happens automatically but requires a lot of focus and commitment. These GCSE results demonstrate that these pupils clearly possess those qualities.”
He continued “The excellent success of our pupils has not been confined to one or two subject areas. Not only have pupils performed brilliantly in our usually strong areas of Design and Technology and all aspects of Science but also in many other areas. We have seen exceptional levels of success in French, German, Music, Art, Drama, Dance, Business Studies and PE. The widespread nature of this success has been the key to enabling our pupils to achieve fantastic results.”
