GCSE results show strong improvement at Highfield

Pupils, staff and parents are celebrating after collecting their GCSE results on Thursday, which show strong improvement on last year’s performance.

37% of pupils achieved the government benchmark of A*-C grades including Maths and English – up nearly ten percentage points on last year (29%).

These results demonstrate the excellent progress the academy is making, and show that the work of teachers, parents and the academy’s sponsor is making a positive impact on the life chances of young people in Blackpool.

Lynette Norris, Principal, said:

“I want to congratulate pupils on their results today.  There are some great individual achievements and everyone should be proud of their efforts.

“The academy has made real progress this year, and we pleased this is reflected in the achievements of pupils.

“We know there is still work to be done, and we are absolutely committed to building on this progress to ensure pupils at Highfield enjoy the very best education.”

Alan Fisher, Chair of Governors, said:

“Congratulations to our GCSE pupils! It is great to see the progress made by the academy which is testament to the hard work of pupils, staff and parents.

“There have been some big changes at the school over the last year, including becoming an academy, and we’re pleased these developments are already having a positive impact on pupils at Highfield.  We will be working hard over the coming months and years, alongside our sponsor, to ensure these improvements continue and pupils enjoy high quality education.”
