Norden High School headteacher Tim Mitchell has praised GCSE pupils for their ‘outstanding success’ in this years exams.
The Rishton school achieved 42 per cent five A* to C grades including English and maths with a ‘significant improvement’ in English results, up by 17 per cent from last year.
Mr Mitchell said: “We would like to congratulate our Year 11 students on their outstanding success in this years exams.
“Their considerable achievements reflect the significant effort made by both themselves and their teachers.
“Their efforts are even more impressive given the significant number of changes to the GCSE exams programme in recent times.
“On behalf of the governing body of the school I would like to thank all our students and staff for their hard work and enthusiasm and we wish all our Year 11 cohort the very best as they move on to the next stage in their education.
“We have had some really outstanding individual performances.
“As always with the results we have some very good and heart-warming stories of students having to deal with significant adversity pulling out some incredible results.
“It is a great positive on days like today.”
