Formby High School was delighted to welcome back our Year 11 students today who were collecting their eagerly anticipated GCSE results. Inevitably, results day this year feels very different to former years and recent headlines have made the anticipation of this day even more nerve-racking for our students than usual.
Despite the somewhat chaotic backdrop, students at Formby High School have received very impressive results today. Their grades, largely determined through internal assessment, reflect the excellent work and commitment shown during the last five years. The outcomes they have attained place our students above national expectations and will set them up well for the future, whether that is at the Formby High School Sixth Form or elsewhere.
Mr Mackenzie (Headteacher) commented:
The grades that have been awarded today speak for themselves. They are genuinely pleasing and all of our students deserve a good pat on the back. More impressive, though, is the way they have conducted themselves over the last five years. Having this group of young people as members of the school community has been a pleasure. They are talented, enthusiastic and have approached all aspects of school with positivity and determination. The last six months of their lives have undoubtedly been a challenge that they have confronted with characteristic resilience and this bodes well for their very bright futures.
Mrs Grieveson (Chair of Governors) added:
Congratulations to everyone receiving their GCSE results today and, on behalf of the Governing Body, I would like to extend our very best wishes to each one of you as you embark on your next chapter. Your hard work and resilience over the past five years will serve you well as you move on to your chosen pathways and I am sure the friendships and memories you have made along the way will stay with you. We know many of you will be returning to Sixth Form and we look forward to welcoming you back in September. Whatever you are choosing to do next, hold your head up high and be very proud of everything you have accomplished at Formby High School – as we are very proud of you!
