Staff and students at Lathom High school are extremely proud of their GCSE achievements demonstrating that working hard to meet the high academic expectation of the GCSE qualifications has produced improved results this summer.
Following their GCSE successes, students are able to move forward with the results they need for the next stage of their education and recognise the effort, commitment and care of their teachers who have supported and challenged them throughout their time at Lathom.
We are particularly proud of our students’ strong and improved performance in both core subjects of Maths and English. Mrs Galbraith, Headteacher, said, “These improvements are testament to the dedication and hard work of staff at Lathom, supported by families at home, and we can be extremely proud in celebrating the talents of all our students. I am delighted that our students are well placed to go on to further success in their life after Lathom.”
In addition to the improvements in the core subjects, students’ achievements in History, Spanish, Art, Drama and PE were extremely strong, showing excellent progress and demonstrating improvement on results in previous years. However, we are most delighted by the increase in the number of students achieving the highest grades in the full range of subjects across the curriculum.
Mrs Diane Murray, Lathom’s recently appointed Chair of Governors, applauded the continued improvements saying “Lathom’s greatest success is seen in the range of subjects in which students achieve, including at the highest levels, as a result of the school’s commitment to a broad and balanced curriculum.” Mrs Murray expressed delight in her new role adding, “the values of the school and the drive to encourage each student to be the very best they can be are evident in this summer’s success at Lathom.”
