Outstanding Summer Exam Results

Welcome back to school, we hope that everyone enjoyed a very happy and healthy summer break. We extend a very warm welcome to all of our new Year 7 students and their parents, and to our new members of staff. For all our current students, the key to success is to work hard and make the most of all the opportunities available.
In August, our GCSE and A Level students celebrated receiving some wonderful results. At GCSE, there were some stunning individual outcomes and amazing stories of success that have enabled all our students to progress onto apprenticeships, sixth form or further education. Top performers include Harry (six grade 9, 2 Distinction* and two grade 8), Megan (four grade 9, two Distinction*, three grade 8), Seb (two grade 9, two Distinction*, three grades 8, three grade 7). Joe, Imogen and Thomas all achieved at least 8 subjects at grade 7 or higher; with the new grading system a grade 7 is equivalent to a previous A grade.

CCHS Principal, Neil Gallagher congratulated all exam students on their success, “This year saw a considerable amount of change to the qualifications Post-16 and I am delighted that our staff and students were able to adapt to these. We have seen exceptional achievements across the board, the proportion of students achieving the highest grades is very impressive and nearly all of them have secured excellent progression into our Sixth Form, onto college, employment, apprenticeships, or their first choice university. This has been down to the incredible efforts made by the students and their teachers. I am delighted for all our students and their families, my congratulations go out to them all. I wish them every success in the next stage of their chosen path. I cannot praise the staff here at CCHS more highly for their commitment and dedication to our students.”
