This morning [Thursday 25 August], there were smiles all around at Rainford High as students collected their long-awaited GCSE results.

Year 11s returned bright and early to collect their GCSE results with their nearest and dearest in tow.

Fortunately, students were able to sit their exam papers this year, unlike the previous two cohorts whose final grades were determined by teacher assessments because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Although delighted by everyone’s success in this year’s exams, some stand out performances included Heidi Kennedy who achieved grade 9s in every subject and will continue her ambition to study linguistics at university in the near future.

Other outstanding results include Isabel Wood and Jack Radcliffe who each gained eight grade 9s and a grade 8.

Twins Thomas and Matthew Sumner achieved strong grades and will continue their studies at Rainford High Sixth Form, along with many other students who will join the school’s dedicated post 16 provision in September. Other students will go on to begin an apprenticeship and others will head straight into the world of work.

Mr Ian Young, principal of the school, said: “Today has been a great day for students and teachers alike. We are immensely proud of everybody for pushing through the pandemic thus far and not allowing it to affect their education too much.

“The best part of results day is seeing the joy on students’ faces and being able to congratulate them for all that they have accomplished during their time here. Whether they decide to stay at Rainford or study elsewhere, I know that they will continue to make us proud and I wish them the best of luck!”
