Our GCSE students and staff are today celebrating a huge 92% gaining five or more GCSEs at C and above including English and Maths.

Headmaster Mark Gibbons said: “Last year, when our GCSE results placed us as the highest-achieving all-ability in school in Wirral at GCSE we did not imagine we could improve on that record – but we have. It is a very proud day for us.

“I would like to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of our teaching staff and pupils, our partnership with parents, our open and honest communication, and the relationships developed as the children are nurtured throughout their years at Kingsmead.

“Today’s results are the end product of that dedication to individual attention and whole-child education. I am very proud indeed of everyone involved, and wish our leavers every success in their futures.”
