Church Stretton School celebrates GCSE resultsChurch Stretton School was delighted to celebrate Year 11’s personal success stories on GCSE results day this year. Whether the students achieved a long list of A*s or excellent personal progress, we couldn’t be prouder. The results saw an increase in the number of pupils achieving 5 A* - C (including English and Maths) and also 5 A* - G.
60% of the pupils achieved 5 A* - C (EM) a significant improvement on last year. Over a quarter of the pupils achieved the prestigious English Baccalaureate equivalent. Many pupils obtained outstanding results including Robert Aze 6 A* 5 A, Alex Hearle 11 A* 1 A, Joseph Pepper 8 A* 2 A, Lauren Williams 10 A* 1 A, Sasha Robinson 11 A* 1 A, Sophie Burgoyne 6 A* 3 A, and Bethan Evans 8 A* 3 A.
The results are testament to the hard work of our pupils and staff. I would also like to thank our parents who provided unstinting support through their time in school.
Mr John Parr Head of School
Keeping SafeIssues of children being safe in school are very much in the news at the moment and I thought it might be useful to update you on some of our current arrangements.
Firstly, Child Protection is central to what we do and you will notice in the bottom left hand corner of this Homepage that we have provided a hyper link to the Shropshire Safeguarding Board website, where any concerns can be raised. Secondly, we have now introduced a new Code of Conduct for all visitors to the school. This is on display in Reception and details our arrangements and expectations of visitors.
Finally you may be aware of the Government’s Prevent Strategy which has been introduced to address issues of pupils who may be at risk of radicalisation. We have recently reviewed our programme of study in Personal, Social & Health Education (PSHE) and now include topics on British values and the dangers of extremism. Please be assured that in all this work we are aiming to give pupils the confidence, knowledge and skills to make informed choices about keeping safe.
