Outstanding is the word staff at Carr Hill High School used to describe their pupils GCSE results - with some achieving as many as 10 A* grades.

Some of the Kirkham school’s top performing students gained A*-A grades across all of their exams.

Maths results this year are nearly 10 per cent above the national average with more than one in 10 students gaining A*-A grades.

Results for English also saw more than one in 10 students gaining A*-A grades.

On top of that, all students in several subjects achieved higher grades than national predictions indicated; these included Health and social care, BTEC music, resistant materials and textiles.

Others, including art, drama, physics, maths, additional science and Spanish, saw a marked increase in the percentage of students making at least three levels of progress.

Among the Royal Avenue school’s top performers were; Ishwar Malhi, who got 10A*s and an A, Luke Emmence, has nine A*s, an A and one B and a Distinction. Amy Croasdale, achieved three A*s, seven As, a B and a Distinction.

Student Owen Drew gained eight A*s, three As and a Distinction.

He said: “I felt really nervous in the car on the way to school because I was unsure about how well I had done. I feel fantastic now I’ve got my results and I’m most pleased with my A* in physics and A* in geography.”

Fellow student Annabel Bullock accomplished three A*s, six As, two Bs, a C and one Distinction.

She said: “I felt relieved when I saw my results. Now I know the hard work has paid off and I feel so happy. I was not expecting an A* in maths so that was a nice shock.”

Headteacher Andrew Waller, said: “The results achieved by our students continue to be impressive year on year. 

Individual performances demonstrate the talent and ability of our pupils who have been rewarded with exceptional grades. We look forward to welcoming many of these students back to the school’s Sixth Form in September where we will no doubt continue to see them achieve.”
