2017: Excellent Academic Success in a new world of examinations

Students at Hartford Church of England High School have once again achieved an excellent set of results. Changes to examinations and the grading system in English, English Literature and Mathematics mean that it is not possible to compare these results with those of previous years but in all key measures, expectations for the year group were exceeded.

Headteacher, Mike Holland, said: “We are thrilled with these results. Our raw scores are very good; this is due to the hard work and dedication of students and colleagues, as well as the support of parents. Our core subjects continue to perform exceptionally well with 75% of students achieving higher grades in Maths and 72% in English.

“Students in Art, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, ICT, Dance, Music, Drama, History and PE have performed exceptionally well this year and our commitment to high standards continues to be rewarded. We are very proud of these achievements and our students must be congratulated for their efforts.’’

Once again over a third of students achieved the English Baccalaureate which is a qualification for students who gain A* – C (or equivalents) grades in English, Maths, 2 Sciences, MFL and either History or Geography and is due to the school insisting that students study rigorous academic subjects as the core of their curriculum.

Highest overall achiever was Annabel Hay (Hartford Primary School) who achieved 12 A*/9/8 grades. Other high achievers were Laura Ashley (Winsford High Street), Georgia Barlow (Hartford Manor), Erin Dean (Overhall), Harry Edgar (Hartford Primary), Alexander Hickson (Comberbach), Sarah Hughes (Hartford Primary), Ellie Miller (Winnington Primary) and Robert Pickering (Hartford Manor). All of these students achieved at least 8 A*/A/9/8/7 grades.
