Many students were celebrating their GCSE results recently, none more so than those from our own Halewood Academy which, based on the results, is the highest performing provider in Knowsley.

Provisional analysis of the results show that the Academy achieved the highest increase in GCSE results this year with 43.5% of pupils gaining five A* – C including English and Maths, an improvement if 18% since 2014. In English alone, 71.5% of pupils achieved a pass at C or above.

There will be many stories of individual student success, amongst the best ever achieved in Knowsley’s history, some quite staggering. 53248MB
