Congratulations to Newton’s Class of 2023

by Gemma Melling

Congratulations to all the Newton-le-Willows pupils who’ve picked up GCSE results today!

With grading returning to pre-pandemic levels, pupils were warned that there would be a drop in performance this year – with not as many pupils achieving passes, or perhaps not at the higher grades.

But there was still much to celebrate as pupils defied all that to put in some fantastic individual performances at our local schools – and after collecting their results are now looking forward to their next steps.

Here’s how some of our local schools and pupils got on…

Hope Academy

Principal of Hope Academy, Mrs Adams, said: “Our students have worked so diligently over the last two years and have achieved results they should be incredibly proud of.

“However, more importantly, these results will allow the vast majority of our students to progress to their preferred next destination.

“Each one of the Class of 2023 ought to be fiercely proud of the hard work, dedication and resilience they have all shown over the course of the last two years, both to their own education and to each other. They all deserve the very best life chances in the future, and I am confident that these individual results will help them to take the first important step on their many different journeys with great confidence.

“We know all our students have wonderful plans for next year and we are both interested and excited to see what they go on to achieve. Their success has been down to their hard work combined with the passion of our staff. Well done team Hope!”

Byrchall High School

Brychall High School’s head teacher, Alan Birchall, said: “We are very proud today of the success and all of the hard work of our students. Their school pathway was of course impacted by the pandemic; however, they have remained both committed to learning and positive in their attitudes to work.

£Our staff and whole school community have been dedicated to supporting each individual and today we are pleased to share their results with them, and to wish them well as they move forward in their learning.

We will update this article with results from Wargrave House School and College, Outwood Academy Haydock and St Edmund Arrowsmith when we get them.
