In 2017, the school celebrated excellent GCSE results with 47% of students achieving English and Mathematics in the government’s headline measure, an uplift on the previous year’s figure.
There were great successes across all subjects but in particular Art where 85% of students achieved A*- C with five students gaining top marks, 100%! Italian was also another outstanding success where 80% of students achieved A*- C.
We were delighted with the exceptional performances from four of our students who between them achieved an amazing 26 A*s and As (or equivalent) in their GCSEs.
The school is clearly moving forward towards becoming a strong and self-improving school and continues to develop a strong partnership with All Hallows Catholic College, an outstanding academy in Macclesfield.
Mr Alex Hren, Headteacher at Saint Paul’s, said: “These are a very good set of exam results of which students and their families should be proud. The results are a fantastic tribute to Saint Paul’s students’ characteristically industrious and purposeful approach, and also to their teachers’ care.”
“Congratulations go to the hard work and commitment of our students and staff and to the support of our parents. Many students have now joined our partner Sixth Form colleges, Xaverian and Loreto, and other have taken up apprenticeships - we wish them well on the next stage of their journey.”
“I am delighted with the way everyone is working so well together - staff, students and parents. It’s vital that we raise the bar on expectations and aspirations for our young people so they can have the best chances of a happy and fulfilling life.”
The school is going from strength to strength and we welcome visits from parents, carers and the community.
