2014 Examination results

Students celebrate success!

It has been another successful year for students at Alder Community High school. Our results saw 71% of students achieving 5 of more A*-C grades including English and Maths. Some of our students opened their results live on ITV’s Good Morning Britain which was very brave of them!

Again, progress in English and Maths is outstanding with 80% making 3 levels progress in English (national average in 2013 = 69%) and 83% making 3 levels progress in Maths (national average in 2013 = 70%). There are many individual successes and special congratulations should go to the 32 students who gained 3 or more A*/A grades and the 20 who achieved 5 or more A*/A grades. Of particular mention are Holly Bracewell, Michael Cullinane and Layla Whyatt who all got 10 A*/A grades!

Congratulations to all our students for exceeding expectations and thank you to our staff and parents for supporting our students throughout the examinations. We look forward to seeing you at Presentation Evening in the autumn term. Well done class of 2014!

Well, the summer holidays are nearly upon us!  Last night we celebrated Awards Evening and it was a great pleasure to see so many students and parents/carers present to celebrate the success of our students.  Once again, this is all possible due to your support, especially through the difficult times.

Backchat, is the school magazine written for students by students. We have worked hard to create a magazine that is informative, varied, engaging and fun to read (as fun as a school magazine can be!) I was going to make it ‘too cool for school’ but that would defeat the object. Just take a look at our range of features, all written or edited by Alder students. I know, I can’t believe it either! Hopefully you will also enjoy the wonderful pictures that accompany the articles; the pictures really do bring the words to life.
