GCSE results show our continuing improvement

south wirral students collecting their gcse results

South Wirral High School is celebrating another year of consistent and strong examination results across all curriculum areas, but again at the top grades of 9-7. This year we continued the trend of students achieving the best grades in a number of subjects. The results show the school’s strength in depth across the whole curriculum and reinforces our desire to develop successful learners, who are also confident individuals and active citizens.

Students share in the joy of their excellent results

In the new grading system a grade 4 is equivalent to a C grade and a grade 7 is equivalent to an A grade. 74% of all students got grade 4 or above in English Language or Literature which is broadly in line with last year’s figures.  60% got a grade 4 or above in Maths which is again similar to last year. 54% of our students got a grade 4 or better in both English and Maths. The school now has a consistent and effective trend in positive student attainment
