2016: Claydon High School celebrates a five year high in GCSE results!

Students and staff have once again been rewarded for their hard work and commitment with another great set of results.  Of the 148 pupils at Claydon High School, 71% of students achieved A*-C in both English and Maths.  

Students in Chemistry, Physics and Further Maths recorded a fantastic 100% A*-C success rate with top results in other subjects including: Biology 97%, English Language 85%, Spanish 85%, Business Studies 82%, Drama 81%, R.E. 80%, P.E. 80%, Media 77% and Maths 75%. 

We are determined that our students are given every opportunity to be the best that they can be and they have certainly excelled themselves this year.  I am delighted with the individual results for students and offer my congratulations to our young people who should all be very proud of what they have achieved, in terms of both academic success and the contribution they have made to school life over the past five years.

I would also like to thank our teaching and support colleagues who always insist on delivering excellence, our governors for supporting us and to families who have gone out of their way to ensure that their sons and daughters have been well supported at home.

As our students move on to the next chapter in their lives, we wish them all the very best of luck.

We have been successful in our application for a Silver School Games Award. The School Games Mark (which is recognised by Ofsted) rewards schools for their commitment to and development of competition, school sport and physical education.

In order to achieve any level of the School Games Mark, we must meet a set of prerequisites including: providing opportunities that attract less active young people to participate in physical activity; a calendar of competition that demonstrates opportunities for young people with SEND to take part in competitions; a notice board and/or in-house school digital system that promotes School Games activity and much more.
