GCSE Results

Thursday, 12th August 2021

Students and staff at Caldew School are celebrating their GCSE results.

Vicki Jackson Headteacher said “We are very proud of our student’s achievements in their GCSE examinations. I want to congratulate all of our students for these results that are a testament to their dedication, resilience and hard work. I would also like to thank all the teachers and support staff at Caldew School for the 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.”

“This year the situation caused by Covid 19 and the shutdown of schools makes the achievements of our students even more impressive. Even though exams were cancelled, students were assessed thoroughly and had to provide evidence in order for a grade to be awarded. There is no doubt that this cohort of students had to work incredibly hard in difficult circumstances to achieve their results and they thoroughly deserve their results. We congratulate them all on the manner in which they have coped in these quite extraordinary times.”
