Pupils, parents and staff at Cantonian High School are celebrating their GCSE results today. A record number of pupils achieved A* – B grades in their GCSEs with an increased number achieving A* – C in nearly all subjects. Of the three core subjects, maths and science show particularly strong progress. Maths has continued its year-on-year trend of improvement with a record 63% of pupils achieving A* – C grades in the new GCSE. The school has also seen a pleasing increase in the percentage of pupils achieving Level 2 science which rose significantly to 82%. The percentage of pupils who achieved 5 GCSEs A* – G has remained strong at 96% and the percentage of pupils who achieved 5 A* or A grades has also increased.
Headteacher, Diane Gill said “I am incredibly proud of the achievements of all our pupils today. Throughout the year our pupils have worked hard to prepare for the new style GCSE papers, including in maths and English, to ensure that they achieved the best grades they could. These results reflect the hard work of our pupils and staff and also the outstanding progress the school has made over the past two years, as recognised recently by Estyn in our successful re-inspection”
“Finally, I would like to take the opportunity to thank our staff for their hard work and dedication and the continued support we receive from our parents and the larger community which has enabled Cantonian High School to secure these results.”
