GCSE Results

 

Thursday, 24th August, was an emotional day as our Year 11 leavers collected their GCSE results. It was fantastic to see that the vast majority of our students achieved the grades they need to follow their chosen pathway. Students have faced significant change with the new GCSEs in English and Mathematics and, with the support of teaching staff and their parents, made us all very proud.

I would like to wish all our Year 11 leavers good luck as they move on. They will always be part of the Lowton family and we look forward to seeing how they progress in the future years.
