North Chadderton is celebrating exceeding its GCSE target for the fifth consecutive year. It also recorded its highest ever English GCSE results at A*-C of 94%.  These results place it in the top 25% of similar secondary schools nationally.

Joy Clark, Headteacher, said “Our relentless drive for personal success for every student is reflected in these GCSE results.  They are also testament to the hard work of the Class of 2015 supported by the superb help and guidance of their teachers.”

Year 7 students have been undertaking a culture project to find out how their culture can help them to become great learners.   The project has involved them interviewing family members about their backgrounds, values and traditions to see how well they fit with the school's culture of promoting Resilience, Respect, Resourcefulness, Reflectiveness, Reasoning and Responsibility.   

Pupils have created a personal learning blog so that they can post about their culture on the VLE.  It is all part of the process of creating global digital citizens who are comfortable with the latest technology, and it is also useful for parents to have virtual window into school life and the school curriculum.

Can parents who recieved a text from school please complete the survey.

North Chadderton School narrowly missed out on being crowned the best secondary in the country.

But proud head teacher Joy Clark insists they are still winners - for making the top eight.

The Times Educational Supplement’s annual schools awards in London on Friday nominated North Chadderton School in the Best Secondary School of the Year category after an incredible year, in which it was named one of the top 90 schools for sustained GCSE improvement and for improving the results of disadvantaged children - as well as raising £10,000 for Dr Kershaw’s Hospice.

Ms Clark said: “I’m so proud of what the team at North Chadderton School achieved in getting to where we are. Staff, pupils and governors have worked tirelessly. It has been an amazing journey; a real team effort.”

North Chadderton was the only English school north of Leicester in the last eight. St Patrick’s High School, County Armagh, Northern Ireland won the trophy.

Ms Clark said: “We weren’t the actual winners, but I feel we were still winners for getting in the top eight. We are just proud to have even been in the room. To receive the national recognition is very humbling. Our school motto ‘driven to be outstanding in all that we do’ is mirrored in how we got in that room.”
