    Students from Chiltern Learning Trust celebrate GCSE success

    23 August 2018

    Students from academies in the Chiltern Learning Trust are celebrating today after receiving their long-awaited GCSE results, with consistently strong results being achieved.

    Four secondary schools and one upper school from across the Trust received their GCSE results today, including:

    ·         Cedars Upper School

    ·         Challney High School for Boys

    ·         Challney High School for Girls

    ·         Denbigh High School

    ·         Putteridge High School

     

    Across the Trust, almost half of our students achieved a ‘strong pass’ (grades 5-9) in both English and Maths, with two thirds securing a ‘good pass’ (grades 4-9) in both subjects. The Trust also expects that all its schools will secure strong Progress figures when the final league tables are published later this year.

    Adrian Rogers, Chief Executive Officer of Chiltern Learning Trust, said: “We are very pleased with the strong results achieved at each of our schools, and would like to thank every member of staff, pupil and parent for their hard work, commitment and support they have shown each school.

    “The Trust operates as a close-knit partnership of local schools who support and challenge each other to secure the best possible standards and achievements for our students.”

    Cedars Upper School

    Cedars Upper School secured another set of strong results with almost half of all students achieving a strong pass (grade 5-9) in both English and Maths, which is significantly above the national average, and an improvement on last year’s grades.

    Challney High School for Boys

    Challney High School for Boys secured improvements across the board, with well over 40% of students achieving the higher grade 5-9 in English and Maths, and two thirds achieving grades 4-9 – an increase of 5 percentage points on last year.

    Challney High School for Girls

    Challney High School for Girls recorded another year of excellent results. More than a third of students achieved a grade 5-9 in both English and Maths and almost two thirds achieved 9-4 grades, with consistently strong progress figures scored across the school. When the league tables are published later this year, the school is expected to rank very highly for the level of progress it has achieved, we predict in the top 11% of schools in the country.  

    Denbigh High School

    Denbigh High School achieved strong results, with almost two thirds of students achieving a grade 4-9 in English and Maths, and well over 40% achieving a grade 5 or higher in both subjects. Progress is also expected to remain high again and place the school within the top 5% of schools nationally.

    Putteridge High School

    Putteridge High School secured significant improvements in attainment and progress across the board. The number of students achieving a grade 5-9 in English and Maths was up 8% on last year to 40%, and up a staggering 14% for the number of students achieving a grade 4-9 in both subjects, to almost two thirds of students.
