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!

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.

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.
