Celebrating best ever results at Longdendale

25 August 2022

The students of Longdendale High School have secured fantastic GCSE results, which are the best results in the school’s history!

These results for the Class of 2022 reflect all of the hard work and dedication the students have put in over the last 5 years at the school despite the challenges and disruption to their education over the past two years.

Initial results show that the majority of students achieved at least a pass in both core subjects such as English and maths, alongside impressive results across a wide of subjects. This is a significant improvement on previous years, showing staff and students alike really do live our ethos of “Excellence and Ambition for all!”

Alongside superb results in many subject areas the school is particularly pleased with the performance of the Maths, English, Science, Art, and Drama departments which have once again secured very strong results. The school has also been able to celebrate outstanding success in many other subjects including Music, Business Studies and Computer Science, Geography and French.

Headteacher Andrea Jones said “We are exceptionally proud of our class of 2022 and wish them every success as they take their next steps. During a period that has seen the most significant disruption to the GCSE examination process and education nationally, it is especially pleasing to see these excellent and well-deserved results of our students. We have been delighted to see that, here at Longdendale, the hard work and resilience our students have demonstrated during their time at the school, supported by the commitment and dedication of the staff have been so richly rewarded.”


Andrea said these results supported the future opportunities for the students as they go on to their chosen routes in further education and training and added “We are delighted that the vast majority of our students are now pursuing their chosen pathways into further education at sixth form colleges, with several having secured some fantastic work-based apprenticeships.

It is especially pleasing to see so many of our students continuing their education within the Stamford Park Trust at Ashton Sixth Form College.”

Longdendale High School joined Stamford Park Trust, a multi-academy Trust led by Ashton Sixth Form College in January 2021 Stamford Park Trust gives us the opportunity to do things differently, to develop and form collaborative approaches to teaching and learning to provide an outstanding quality of education to all students in the Trust.

On Behalf on everyone from Longdendale High School and the wider Stamford Park Trust we’d like to say a huge thank you to all our students!
