Today Millom School students are celebrating their GCSE and vocational qualification results.

The school has seen a high level of success, which has allowed students to progress on to a range of post-16 courses and apprenticeships.

Matt Savidge, Headteacher, said “Congratulations to all of the students of Millom School who are receiving their GCSE results today. The grades students have received today are well deserved and reflect the hard work and commitment to learning that they have shown, particularly during the pandemic. This year more than ever has shown the importance of celebrating the individual achievements of our students and I am very proud of them all. These results provide students with the opportunity to move on to the next stage of their education and I look forward to welcoming many of them back into Millom School sixth form in September.”

Donna Burgess, Director of Learning and Standards for the Key Stage 4, said, “The students have worked incredibly hard during difficult circumstances however, I’m delighted with the grades they have secured. Their hard work has certainly paid off. We have students moving onto 6th form, apprenticeships and employment with training. We have had some exceptional grades from Charlotte Swallow, Paige Chapman, Jenny Howitt, Elize Johnson and Daniel Fletcher and I would like to recognise their achievements. Congratulations to you all. Millom School wishes you the best of luck in your next chapter of education.”

Elsa Mason, Chair of Governors, said, “Huge congratulations to this year group for taking on and adapting to the challenges of this year’s examinations. It is great to see so many successes that will take the students forward into their future studies and working lives. They have been a credit to themselves and the school and I hope fellow students will be inspired for what they too can achieve with the opportunities on offer at Millom school. I wish you every success in your next steps.”
