Students Celebrate GCSE Successes
Our congratulations go to all the students who are receiving their results today, they mark the culmination of years of hard work and study. We are especially pleased to see a further rise in the number of A* and A grades being achieved by our students with 18 students having achieved 8 or more of these higher grades, with over 40% of the year group gaining one or more A* or A. As a comprehensive school we are proud to see that every student will leave with at least 5 or more passes and early indications are that every student has an apprenticeship or place to continue their studies further either in 6th Form or at College. As a school we have at least equalled our best ever results at the headline measure of 5A*-C inc English and Maths of 58% and we hopeful that this will rise further once the final analysis is complete.
A Level Result Success
Congratulations to all the students on their A Level results. The A level average points per entry rose considerably with some quite outstanding individual results being achieved. The students achieved a 98% pass rate with 40% of their grades at A*/A or B. We are pleased to see that 25% of the students going to University will be doing so at one of the institutions within the Russell Group; while others will be attending leading institutions in particular fields of expertise such as Art, Agriculture, Acting or Nursing to name but a few. We wish all of the students receiving their results today every future success whether it is in their apprenticeships, jobs or at University.

Recommended Reading Lists
Reading for pleasure brings with it a number of benefits to children and adults alike, and encouraging this is important here at Caldew. We have a wide range of fiction available in the library to suit all tastes and ages of our students, and you can now access some of our top recommendations online. The service is provided free by a website called Lovereading4schools.co.uk and in addition to being available in the school library, all the books are available to buy at a 25% discount. Uniquely, schools and parents can download a free Opening Extract of each book to find out which their children will most enjoy before buying. And for every £100 spent by parents of our school we are given a £5 book voucher to purchase more books for our school library, benefiting your child even further.
