In 2016 St Clement’s High School was pleased to report that under the government’s new progress measure for GCSE results achieved a very positive 0.33. This measure considers the progress of all students and shows that the progress of our students is the best it has ever been. Headteacher Nigel Willingham said “It is great to see our students doing so well against the new national performance measure, it shows that more students than ever before have made good progress during their time with us.” The chair of Governors Ed Weightman said “The students and staff have worked exceptionally hard and we are very proud of the year group”
St Clement’s High School achieved 52% A* -C in English and Maths which is the second best result in the school’s history. English recorded their best ever result, with 83% achieving A*-C. Sam Thorpe was the school’s highest performing boy, achieving six A* grades and five A grades. Ella Doughty was the highest performing girl achieving three A* grades and five A grades.
The school will continue to work relentlessly to ensure we challenge and support our students to achieve the very best possible year on year. We have high expectations of both our teachers and our students and set challenging targets for all and support each other to achieve them. We work hard to accurately monitor the progress of students, celebrate achievement and progress and intervene where necessary. A positive attitude to learning is an essential part of academic succes. Teachers regularly assess how engaged each student is in their studies using an “attitude to learning” score. We celebrate students who have a good attitude to their studies and actively encourage those who need to improve in this area.
