Results 2017

The wait was finally over for our Year 11 students when they received their GCSE exam results in August. They were the first cohort of students taking the new exams which are designed to be more challenging. Of our 120 students 63% achieved a grade 4-9 in both Maths and one of their English GCSEs; the grade 4 is equivalent to grade C in other subjects.  26% of our students achieved passes at grade C or 5 in their EBacc subjects, which include a Language and Humanities subject. We had many strong performances in individual subjects including: Drama, Spanish, Science, PE and Food and Nutrition.

As well as celebrating exam results, I would also like to pay tribute to the contribution these students made to school life in sport, music, drama, art and the many other areas of achievement and creativity in which they excelled. I wish them all the very best with the next stage of their education and training.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank parents and carers for their fantastic support and to highlight the hard work and commitment of all the teachers, staff, governors and wider community that has contributed to our success this year and helped students on their journey.

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.

MADAGASCAR — Congratulations!

Huge congratulations to all the cast and crew who took part in our production of Madagascar. The show couldn't run without our very talented students but also our backstage crew and those people who gave up valuable time to support with refreshments, front of house, sound and lighting, costumes, hair and make-up, props, scenery etc... It was great to see all your hard work and weeks of rehearsals culminating in stunning performances across two nights. The singing, dancing, acting and comedy moments were superb! Sincere thanks also to parents/carers for their support and to those who came to watch the show, we hope you enjoyed it.

 

Claydon Bake Off

Well done to all those students and staff who entered the 'Claydon Bake Off'. We had some truly amazing cakes that would have competed with the professionals and it was very difficult to judge!

Congratulations to our overall winners, Jasmine S in the 'Showstoppers' category, who made the large chocolate/cherry cupcake and Ella in the 'Small Bakes' with her mini carrot cakes. Well done to runners-up: Bethany and Erin, Lottie, Lucy and Jasmine C. We must also mention Mrs Lovell-Brown, winner of the staff category.

Lastly - a big thank you to Ellie T who worked very hard to organise the event, ably assisted by Faith, Alex and Joseph.

Slices of cake were sold to students at lunchtime and the money raised will go towards the charity 'FIND' which supports families in need.
