The phenomenal hard work of all of our students, staff and whole school community has really paid off.
In a year that has seen new specifications, new qualifications and a new grading system our students could not be deterred and have once again performed strongly when compared to results across the country. Students performed strongly in English and maths, with results above national when compared with all 16-year-old students in the UK. Three quarters of our students achieved at least a grade 4 in English and maths, with nearly a third of our students achieving a grade 7-9 in English.
Key performance indicators show improvements across the board, with particularly impressive results in English with twice as many students achieving the very top grades compared to the previous year and over 80% of students achieving a grade 4 or above.
With our broad curriculum offer students have succeeded across a wide range of subject areas, giving them the best possible opportunities and choices post 16. At Prenton we believe in our vision statement: Making a difference today for a better tomorrow. With these results students are well equipped for a bright future.
Mrs Ayling, Headteacher, commented: “As Headteacher, I am incredibly proud of how focused and hard working all of the students were in their studies and would like to thank the students, and recognise the support they have received from home. The partnership between home and school is something of which we are very proud and we value the important role that parents and carers play in student success. Staff and Governors at Prenton consistently go the extra mile and the results are testament to their continued pursuit of making a difference to every single student.”
To see our commitment to extra-curricular provision, as well as what we offer in the classroom, we encourage visits to our school so that you can see for yourself what we have to offer. We look forward to seeing you at our autumn open events, however, if you cannot make any of these, simply contact the school and appropriate arrangements will be made to welcome you and show you around on a normal working day.
Many congratulations to our hard working students!
