Winsford Academy is celebrating a sustained improvement in GCSE results, with notable achievements in a number of subject areas.

Early analysis of results show GCSE progress in English is set to meet the national average, the attainment gap between students receiving free school meals and their peers has been more than halved, and the performance of top ability students has improved significantly.

The Grange Lane school revealed performance was especially notable in the following GCSE courses: additional science, art & design, English literature, music, Spanish and religious studies; and the vocational areas of construction, hospitality & catering, sport and travel & tourism.

High-achieving students included: Reiss Bratt, Dean Burke, Megan Clark, Elliot Collins, Holly Collins, Ben Fulton, Courtney Gowland, Rebecca Hayter, Shola Hornby, Chloe Jeffries, Aimee McCormack, Hazel Miller, Kirsty Parker, Layla Rigby, Sarah Stringer, Renya Sziulmowski, Ross Walker, Sophie Warren and Leah Whitehead.

Principal Andrew Taylor-Edwards said: “These GCSE results, combined with a large increase in average points scores per student at A level and record levels of attendance, and in the context of an increasingly demanding education standard, the students, parents and staff who make the Academy what it is, have much to celebrate.”
