Students at Cheadle Hulme High School were celebrating excellent results today with 11 students scooping seven or more top grade 9s in this year’s GCSEs.

In another triumphant year at the school more than 40% of all GCSEs were awarded Grade 7 or above.

A fifth of all Year 11 students received a remarkable tally of straight 7s, 8s and 9s in all their subjects, while an impressive 69% scored grades 9-5 in English and Maths. Grade 5 or above is considered the government’s gold standard at GCSE level.

One Year 11 student, Rowan Stamp, was delighted to achieve a clean sweep of nine grade 9s.

Dave Brown, CHHS headteacher, said: “Our students have yet again achieved wonderful GCSE results. More of them than ever before have been awarded top grades.

“We’re also delighted that the progress students make overall has been shown to be excellent. We congratulate them all for their hard work.”
