A Level Results

Thursday, 15th August 2019

We are once again delighted with our students A Level results. Vicki Jackson Headteacher said “I would like to congratulate all our students on achieving excellent results again this year. They have worked incredibly hard over the last two years and have shown a real determination to succeed. I would also like to thank all the teachers and support staff at Caldew School for their hard work and commitment that has helped our students be so successful and to parents and carers who have worked with us in supporting their children. These results have maintained our strong record at A Level and there are improvements in many areas. I am very proud to see our Year 13 students’ progress to the next stage of their lives, whether this be at university, on an apprenticeship or in the work place and I would like to take this opportunity to wish them every success”

The overwhelming majority of Caldew School’s students will be able to attend their first choice university, and will study courses including sciences, languages, mathematics, engineering, computing and the arts at some of the country’s top universities.

As always there are a number of queries over re-marks and grade boundaries and so, once the official DfE September checking exercise has been completed we will issue our headline data.

Leaders’ plans to support the pastoral transition of pupils from primary school are thorough. Year 7 pupils with whom Inspectors spoke were positive about the school.

The strengthening of care and support has had a positive impact on most pupils. It was clearly visible when inspectors met pupils during the inspection. They demonstrated confidence as learners, and typically enjoyed positive interactions with one another and adults.
