This year's examination results are the best in recent memory for MCHS. The overall combined English and Maths GCSE Grade has risen by 4% and the school has performed much better in Mathematics, Science and French, as well as continuing to to do well the subjects in which it has been traditionally strong. We are only at the beginning of our journey of school improvement, and with the continued support of The Bay Learning Trust, I am confident that the results in 2019 will be stronger still.
The most impressive GCSE results this year were attained by Catherine Cowen, who was placed in the top 3% in the country by achieving Grade 9 in the subjects English Literature, French, Religious Education and Spanish, and also achieved 5 Grade 8s and a grade 7. We are proud of her success.
At Morecambe Community High School we celebrate the achievements of all students. The students who have made the most progress throughout their school careers, all attaining on average two grades better than their targets, were Daisy Reynolds (9,9,8,7,A*,A,7,6,6) Ethan Furlong (7,7,7,6,6,B,5,5,P) and Riese Thomas (5,5,5,4,4,3,3,P,L1M). These young people have worked extremely hard and are a credit to our community.
I would like to thank all the staff, parents and students who have made today such a success, and look forward to welcoming many of them back into Sixth Form in September.
Mrs V Michael
