GCSE Pupil Success at Cookstown High School

29th Oct 2020

GCSE pupils at Cookstown High School have again achieved a wonderful set of examination results despite all of the challenges of the last academic year. 

Cookstown High School pupils obtained an impressive all GCSE grades once again with the significant number of pupils achieving the top category of A* or A grades.  

Overall the percentage of pupils achieving grades A* - C in five or more GCSE exams including English and Maths has gone up by 5%.  

The Principal of the High School, Miss Gwyneth Evans acknowledged the achievement of all concerned saying, “The success of our GCSE pupils is a testament to their hard work and also the commitment of staff and the support of parents.   

As a combined grammar and secondary school we are delighted that not only do we perform as well as selective grammar schools, but we encourage achievement and aspiration among all our pupils.  It is great that not only have we seen improvement among top grades achieved but also to see the success of pupils across the school in a wide variety of courses. 

At the High School we strive for excellence, offer opportunity and provide support to all our learners and an increasing number of pupils find they can thrive in that atmosphere. 

“I would like to congratulate everyone who has achieved success in these exams and wish them well as they return to embark on their A Level studies.”
