They are all exceptional, inspiring and talented young people, and we couldn’t be prouder of them. We are very pleased with these results that continue our good track record at GCSE”.  

“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.”

I am looking forward to seeing most of them returning to Caldew School in the Sixth Form.
