GCSE Results 2015
Walton High School students are celebrating today following the publication of yet another set of outstanding GCSE results.
Under the Government’s new performance measures, 80% of our students achieved at least a Grade C in both English and Maths and the average grade across all subjects was a grade B. We were particularly delighted that almost a third of the total papers have been awarded the very top grades of A and A*.
Headteacher Neil Finlay commented: “I am very pleased with this impressive set of results. I am incredibly proud of our Year 11 students who have worked extremely hard for their success. I look forward to further success with this talented year group as they progress into our Sixth Form with its brand new accommodation and facilities.”
A Level Results 2015
Students and staff at Walton High School are celebrating today after an outstanding set of A level results.
Performance at the higher grades was particularly impressive with 52% of the papers receiving higher grades of A*, A or B.
Headteacher Neil Finlay commented “I am delighted with this excellent set of results. I am particularly pleased with the number of A* and A grades that our students have been awarded, which at 26% is the highest in Walton’s history, and I am happy that the hard work of our A Level students and the support of their parents and teachers has been rewarded.”
At their meeting of Thursday, 9th July, the Governing Body voted unanimously to apply to the Secretary of State for Education for an Academy Order.
They have asked me to convey their thanks to all our parents who contributed to the consultation, either in person at the parents' meeting or via email, our students through the school council and the representative bodies of our staff.
I have been instructed to keep everyone informed of developments via our website and you can follow my responses to parental questions on this link.
May I take this opportunity to wish all our students, parents, staff and governors a safe and enjoyable summer holiday.
Mr N D Finlay, Headteacher
