Fantastic Exam Results 2017


Endeavour brings success to Longdendale

The students of Longdendale High School have once again secured fantastic GCSE results which reflect all of the hard work and dedication they have put in over the last five years at the school.

Headteacher, Andrea Jones, said "We are delighted with another year of fantastic GCSE results for our Class of 2017, particularly in a year which has seen such significant changes to the assessment and examination structures nationally.  Our aspiration to achieve and be successful has certainly paid off for our students and we are extremely proud of them.”

Andrea puts this success down to the students and staff of the school “With the support of a dedicated team of staff, and alongside the students' own talent, hard work and commitment, the students have achieved these well deserved results. It has been a fantastic five-year journey and we are delighted to see our collective efforts so richly rewarded and we wish all of our students the best of luck for the future.”

The very strong performance of the school is reflected in great results in many subjects, most notably in English, English Literature, Science, Business Studies, Geography, German, ICT, Sociology, Media Studies, Music, Dance, Drama and Physical Education, where results are well above the national average. These results support the future opportunities for the students as they go on to their chosen routes in further education and training.

It is little surprise that the achievements and successes of Longdendale High School have been reflected by: being recognised as a Centre of Excellence on achieving the Inclusion Charter Mark; the award of the Gold Inspiring Careers and Guidance quality mark; the International School Award; and by Ofsted, who judged the school to be ‘Good with Outstanding Features’.
