Last Thursday, students from St Cuthbert’s Catholic High School in St Helens celebrated after receiving their GCSE results.
The school’s conservatory was filled with smiling parents and students.
After two years of very different celebrations, the St Cuthbert’s community were able to gather again to celebrate examination-assessed results.
46% of students achieved five grades 4-9 (including maths and English).
This is a significant improvement from the last time students took their GCSEs.
Staff said the results were a testimony to the hard work of St Cuthbert’s students, staff and families, who, throughout the pandemic, did everything they could to support their young people.
Some highlights include:
– Ali Oksan, who achieved three grade 9s, two grade 8s, a grade 7 and three grade 6s
– Amy Ganner, who achieved two grade 9s, three grade 8s, three grade 7s and a grade 6
Student Ali Oksan said: “I’ve loved my time at St Cuthbert’s.
“I know if I ever needed support, the doors would always be open for me to come and ask for guidance and help.
“I’ll always remember the support they gave to me whilst I was a student there.”
St Cuthbert’s Catholic High School headteacher, Catherine Twist, said: “We are very pleased with this year’s results, showing another improvement since the last GCSEs.
“Our young people who have shown such resilience over the last two years and a genuine determination not to be defined by the pandemic.
“The staff have worked tirelessly to prepare our students not just for their exams but for life after school and I am extremely proud of the efforts of everyone who is involved with and is part of the St Cuthbert’s community.”
