In 2017 St Clement’s High School was pleased to report another very positive set of GCSE results. Fifty-five (55) % of the students achieved grades 9 -4 in both English and Maths which is the second best result in the school’s history. English recorded another great year with over 72% of the cohort achieving 9-4 grades in the subject.

Martin Warner was the highest performing boy, he achieved a 9 grade in English literature, 8 in Maths, 7 in English language, as well as nine A grades in other subjects
Headteacher Nigel Willingham said “It is great to see our students doing well in the new reformed tougher English and Maths Exams, it shows that students continue to make 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”
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 success. 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.
