Helsby High School has been given national recognition for performing in the top 10% of state schools in the country.
It has picked up an award for the high average grades achieved by its students compared to non-selective schools across the UK.
Headteacher John Dowler received the Educational Outcomes prize from the Schools, Students and Teachers Network (SSAT) at a ceremony in Manchester.
SSAT chief executive Sue Williamson said: “It’s my great pleasure to commend Helsby High School on their excellent 2015 performance, and to have the opportunity to highlight and share their great work at the SSAT Educational Outcomes celebration evening.
“I have the privilege of visiting a lot of schools and I am always impressed by the creativity of teachers in engaging and inspiring their students.
“I hope that SSAT’s Educational Outcomes award will highlight the professionalism, commitment and hard work of the leaders, teachers and students at Helsby High School.
“Recognising and sharing successes like this is at the heart of SSAT’s mission, so I’m delighted to congratulate Helsby High School on their achievement.”
Last year the school celebrated ‘exceptional’ A-level results, with 80% of grades ranging from A* to C.
At GCSE level it was similarly impressive as 79% of students gaining 5 A* to C results.
