St Edward’s, a day and residential special school providing care and education for boys who experience social, emotional and mental health difficulties (SEMH) celebrates very pleasing public examination results.

The school community were extremely proud to receive confirmation of public examination success on Thursday 12 August 2021.  The year had been difficult for pupils because the pandemic inevitably impacted on teaching and learning. That said, pupils at St Edward’s School continued to work hard and were rewarded with very encouraging results, equating to a 94% pass rate in all subjects.

Individual subjects achieved some impressive results. There was a 90% pass rate in mathematics for pupils achieving grades 9-4 at GCSE. 70% achieved grades 9-4 in GCSE English and an impressive 100% achieved a pass in GCSE Art and Design with many pupils gaining very high grades. We were also delighted with the 100% pass rate achieved by pupils sitting their functional skills examinations. Well done to all!

Mr Graham Maher, Headmaster, commented, “The examination results achieved by all pupils in Year 11 at St Edward’s School are testimony to their resilience and determination. At a time of great disruption and uncertainty, pupils and staff have worked hard and achieved ambitious grades. I am delighted that these results enabled so many of our pupils to progress to colleges of further education.’’
