The staff and governors of Mossley Hollins High School would like to congratulate our Year 11 students (The Class of 2023) for their successful performance in this year’s GCSE examinations. We are really pleased that over 70% of students have achieved a good grade in both maths and English. We are particularly pleased with students’ performance in English where 82% of the cohort achieved good grades and in mathematics where 75% achieved good grades. We are really pleased to report that 73% of students studied the English Baccalaureate with almost 40% of students achieving good grades in all of their English Baccalaureate subjects.
Exceptional individual performances include Cara Dote who achieved the much-coveted Grade 9 in all 10 of her subjects; and Brooke Bamford who achieved Grade 9 in 4 of her subjects and a Grade 8 in 5 others. This is particularly impressive given the national decrease in the percentage of students achieving the very top grades this year in comparison to recent years. Congratulations also go to Joshua Aspin, Maisie Knott, Mia Newton, Amber Webster, Eloise Brown and Max Whitwam who also achieved Grades 8-9 in a number of subjects.
The school is also delighted to report astonishing progress in learning across the 5 years from Nathan Crossland, Gracie-Rose Mallon, Tyler Butters and Jasmine Strongitharm Small, all of whom worked exceptionally hard despite, in some cases, very challenging circumstances, and performed at a level way beyond expectations.
As always, we are very proud of our students, particularly given the challenging circumstances which they have endured over the past few years. They have worked extremely hard and risen to so many challenges to secure results which will allow them to take the next steps into education, training or employment.
Students’ achievement is very pleasing in a range of subjects particularly in Separate Sciences with more than 50% of students achieving a Grade 7 or above in all 3 sciences. Similarly there were excellent results in Physical Education where 41% of students achieved Grade 7-9, Food and Nutrition where 70% of students achieved Grade 6 or above, Design and Technology where over 60% of students achieved a Grade 5 or above, Health and Social Care where over 45% of students achieved Distinction.
The school would also like to thank our parents and families for their help, support and encouragement and our staff for all their hardwork and for the support they have provided to our students
As always we look forward to hearing of the continued success of our students at college and beyond.
