Southlands High School is celebrating a 10% increase in the number of students who achieved their GCSE Maths and English threshold this year. The new Head Teacher, Miss Millar thanked everyone who has worked extremely hard to make these improvements and achieve results which will now open many doors to the students’ futures. Additional praise was given to the families of the students who supported their children during this very important stage of their educational journey through Southlands High School.
Staff and students were resolute in their desire to improve on the previous year’s results and their commitment and determination has yielded improvements in the attainment of 19 subjects.
Special mention must go to the achievements of Johnathon Brocken, Gabrielle Cross, Charlotte Fisher, Caitlin Howard, Laura Marsh, Erin Williams, Eleanor Anwyl, Emily Hall, Chloe Knight, Tom Houghton, Louis Sanderson and Bella Wilson.
Year 10 students were also at school to collect results today having sat their GCSE English Literature and GCSE Music. Well done to Year 10 students who have achieved some very pleasing results and now having experienced real GCSE’s examinations can focus on the year ahead of them with great purpose.
Headteacher Kerry Millar said “I am delighted for the students, their families and the staff of Southlands who have worked tirelessly throughout the year to make this strong improvement on the previous year’s outcomes. I wish the ‘class of 2017’ the very best in their future endeavours as they move onto further education, employment or training.”
“A great platform has been set on which the school and the Southlands Spirit can thrive in the coming years as we embark upon our venture into the Mosaic Academy Trust with Standish High School.”
