Once again the students at Poynton High School have achieved outstanding results in their GCSE examinations and early analysis shows that they are once again in line with the top 10% of all students in the country.
“It is wonderful to see such amazing results and individual success stories. With approaching 10% of all our GCSE examinations being graded at the very prestigious A* Grade and approximately 40% of students achieving the gold standard English Baccalaureate we are once again celebrating the outstanding achievement by our students. All of our staff and governors are so very proud of each and every student – they have done themselves, and their families, proud.” said Mr David Waugh, Head Teacher.
