Welcome to the new academic year which brings a brand new website in September and a new Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) in the coming months to support pupils’ independent learning.
A special welcome to our 195 Year 7 students who we look forward to seeing settle in quickly, embrace school life and the many opportunities it brings at Greenbank.
We look forward to a busy September which brings Open Evening on 16th September and a number of opportunities to tour the school for parents and pupils who are making their important choice of secondary school. I look forward to meeting prospective new pupils and parents in the coming weeks.
The summer period has been extremely busy in further improving the school environment. We have a brand new Science Laboratory, and the Maths rooms 1-3, The Language Centre and Room 19 have been refurbished. We have a new Pastoral Support Centre which houses the Progress Leaders and Learning Mentors in one area to enable us to support girls in need of support in a cohesive and effective manner.
Students at Greenbank High School have once again celebrated their GCSE results recently.
We were pleased with the results which reflected the commitment of the girls who worked so hard with their teachers to achieve excellent outcomes. We were proud of our Year 11 students who as well as their academic achievements made such an important contribution to our school in so many ways through for example leadership, sport, performing arts and ambassadorial duties. They were excellent role models who we look forward to seeing thrive in their chosen post 16 destination and hopefully return to school in the future to support our current students. 68% of students achieved 5A*-Cs including English and Mathematics, 82% achieved 5 GCSEs or above, while over half the cohort achieved the English Baccalaureate suite of GCSEs which is an impressive further increase of 9% from last year and gives them a broad and balanced foundation for higher education.
Congratulations to the following 26 pupils who achieved 8 or more A/A* grades. They were Megan Ashworth, Amy Ball, Allie Beveridge, Helen Campbell, Tabitha Champion, Amy Clayton, Becky Clementson, Eleanor Daniels, Emma Dixon, Laura Ellis, Maya Hayes, Hannah Howard, Leah Jamieson, Charlotte Kelly, Sarah Lunt, Beth Marshall, Isabel Moore, Katy Rigby, Margaret Rudzka, Rebecca Stephens, Jade Townsend, Asha Vickers, Yasmn Wentworth, Emily Wordsworth, Charlotte Wrigg and Ka-Ming Ying. An outstanding achievement.
