Record breaking GCSE results! 

Congratulations to the Class of 2017 on achieving record GCSE results!

GCSE results are phenomenal and will place Madeley School as one of the highest performing schools across Staffordshire, Cheshire and the whole of the West Midlands. Girls results are amongst the best nationally! Here are some of the highlights:

  • 78% English and Maths
  • 85% Maths
  • 84% English

Furthermore, there were many individual stories of success such as one pupil who achieved the equivalent of over 11 A* grades! 48% of students also achieved a number of A/A* grades, and 20% of students left with 5 or more A*/A grades. Over 10% of pupils gained at least 8 A/A* grades.

Mr Nixon, Principal commented: 'The class of 2017 have achieved a set of remarkable results, given the amount of national change to the exam system, subject content, grading and the general uncertainty. It is a testimony to the talent and hard work of students and staff and the support of parents.

'It is an exciting time to be leading Madeley and the class of 2017 have set the bar exceptionally high as we continue to inspire excellence. Good luck to all of our graduates as they progress onto the next stage of their education.'

Best in Staffordshire!

Congratulations to the Class of 2017 who achieved the best results in Staffordshire on the new tougher Maths 5+ measure. 74% of our pupils gained a grade 5 or higher which puts us at the very top of the county!

Furthermore, the school ranked 5th in Staffordshire on the new English 5+ measure (74%), and finished an impressive 2nd in Staffordshire on the new grade 5+ in English & Maths (65%). In addition, the performance of girls is nothing short of exceptional, with 91% achieving 4+ in English, and 79% at 5+ in English. Overall, 82% of girls achieved Eng & Maths at 4+ which is above any of the local single sex schools in North Staffordshire and Cheshire. 

These phenomenal results are beyond outstanding and firmly place Madeley as one of the top performing schools in the region and nationally based on these measures.
