Year 11 pupils celebrate their success at Healing School
Principal Mrs Dewland said: “I’m delighted for the pupils and staff. Both have worked so hard and deserve their wonderful successes today.
“Consistently, we have been a top-performing school in North East Lincolnshire for many years and these set of results add to that proud and remarkable record.”
There were also excellent performances from individual departments, with English achieving 95% standard grade 4 and above and Maths achieving 83%. In terms of the strong pass, 83% of pupils achieved grade 5 and above in English and 62% of pupils achieved a grade 5 and above in Maths.
Pupils in Triple Science did particularly well with 100% of pupils achieving grade 4 and above in all three sciences (Biology, Physics and Chemistry), which is especially significant as over half the cohort study the more demanding Triple Science GCSEs. There were also some strong performances across the school as a whole.
Outstanding results have confirmed Healing School’s status as the best performing school in the north of England, when compared to similar schools.
They compare 55 schools where pupils had similar achievement at the end of key stage 2.
Healing School is ranked the fifth best, with only three in London and another in Buckinghamshire above it.
Last year’s ‘above average’ Progress 8 figure of 0.41 put Healing in the country’s top 20% for progress, winning an educational outcome award from the Schools, Students and Teachers network (SSAT).
