The Winston Churchill School GCSE Results

Students and parents are celebrating a very positive set of GCSE results, where the school has managed to minimise the impact of recent government changes on examination outcomes.
The headline figure of 67% 5A*-C incl English & Maths, ensures that the school has met its target for this year.  Particularly pleasing is that 72% of students achieved at least a C grade or better in both Maths and English, which will ensure that these young people can progress confidently into the next phase of their lives.  The percentage of students achieving the EBacc is 47.2%, this represents a highly academic measure. Pass rates in subjects such as Maths, Geography and German have significantly increased and reflect the hard work of both staff and students, to ensure that we achieve the best outcomes possible.  Collectively, through a range of strategies, our students have been very successful and thanks should also go to Our Head Boy and Head Girl, Harry and Lily, for their contribution to leading the Year Group by example.

These are very good results, which have been achieved by young people in a local authority comprehensive school.  Although examination achievement is regarded at Winston as very important aspect of the education we provide, it is complemented by the range of life skills and experiences that help our students develop from being children into young adults of whom we are rightly proud.  Our examination entry policy is simple; if we have taught you then we will enter you for the examination.
Winston has achieved a consistently high standard of examination results for several years now, but we are not complacent and will continue to work together to support individuals and groups and to drive up standards. 

Well done to all our students, staff and parents!
