GCSE success at Rainford High

There was lots a happy faces at Rainford High as students collected their GCSE results.

The school has seen increases in a number of areas, with 50% of students achieving 9-5 grades in English and maths.

27 students achieved incredible grade 9’s in maths a number of students making excellent progress across all subjects.

One particular student, Alana Hesketh achieved nine 9's and an A* in further maths. She will go on to study A-levels in sciences and maths, in preparation to possibly study medicine at university.

Alana has been a fantastic all-round student who has successfully represented the school at sport. Her results make her one of 836 students nationally who has achieved more than 7 grade 9’s.

Principal Ian Young said: “It has been another good year for GSCE results at Rainford High. Our students have worked very hard in preparation for their exams, and thanks to the right support from our outstanding teaching staff, it is great to see their efforts have paid off.

“Fortunately, we will still see many of our students around as they continue their studies at Rainford Sixth Form, and with places still available, today’s results will help make up the minds of those still unsure.

“No matter what route they take into further education or the world of work, I would like to wish Rainford High’s class of 2019 the very best of luck for the future.
