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!

Welcome back!

We welcome back our students after the summer break and also our new Year 7 who have settled extremely well. I have received lots of positive comments from parents saying how well their child has settled in and how they love school! I must thank all our students from Years 8 to 11 who have made our Year 7 feel most welcome so enabling them to settle extremely quickly.

Industrial Action – 10th July

You may be aware from the National media, as part of an ongoing dispute with the Government over pay and conditions, the National union of Teachers (NUT), Unison, GMB and Unite (3 support staff unions) will be taking industrial action on Thursday, 10th July. This is a national day of industrial action; therefore, school will be closed on Thursday, 10th July and will reopen on Friday 11th July. I apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Enrichment Day

Our second enrichment day takes place this Thursday, 20th March. Students will experience something different from their normal timetable. Year 9 will be involved in a problem solving and marketing competition called the ‘Lionheart Challenge’ sponsored by CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants). The winners will go forward to the regional finals with the chance to make the national finals. Last year Alder reached the national finals and whilst we did not win outright, the team won an award for the best financial plan.
