Key Stage 4 Results Press Release

Millom School students and staff are today celebrating GCSE results, which represent five years of hard work for the students. The results were especially pleasing in the light of the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic. There were some exceptional individual performances. Top performing students include Molly Little, Charlotte Adams, Aurelia Simpson, Matthew Pilcher, Kai Nicholas and Ben Pollard. These students achieved a staggering 44 Grade 9s and 8s between them!

Staff are delighted that so many students are returning to Millom School Sixth Form to continue their studies on our broad suite of A-level and vocational courses. Many of our Year 11 students have successfully gained apprenticeships with local firms and are looking forward to entering the world of work with high quality training. Such strong results at GCSE puts all of these students in good stead for a very bright future, no matter which progression pathway they have chosen.

Matt Savidge, Headteacher, said “Congratulations to all of our students on their results today. I am delighted that these students have been rewarded for their commitment and effort, particularly given the challenges of studying for their GCSEs throughout the Covid pandemic. Thank you to all the staff and governors for their commitment and to the parents, carers and family members for their dedication and support for our young people. I look forward to seeing many of our students return to continue their studies with us at Millom School Sixth Form in September.”

Donna Burgess, Director of Learning and Standards for Key Stage 4 said “It has been a real pleasure to work with these students over the last two years. They have shown great commitment and resilience to their studies. I am over the moon that their efforts have paid off. The GCSE results are fantastic and I feel incredibly proud of them all. They have definitely shown that hard work really does pay off and opens up a vast range of opportunities for them. I wish them all the best of luck in their next steps within education.”

Elsa Mason, Chair of Governors, added, “This is a great set of results for our students, complementing their many other achievements both within the school community and the wider community. I hope others will be inspired by the achievements of these students and continue to take advantage of the opportunities available at the school. On behalf of the Governing Body, I would like to congratulate all students and wish them every success for the future.”
