School Performance

“Pupils’ life chances have been significantly improved, especially those of disadvantaged pupils, as a result of the school’s relentless focus on high standards and its dedicated moral purpose. The school’s motto ‘Velis et Remis’ – meaning ‘with sails and oars’ – aptly characterises the school’s collective passion and determination to achieve its goals.”

“Pupils are provided with high-quality learning opportunities, which they enjoy and relish... ...Teachers have high expectations of every pupil. Pupils rise to the challenge as a result. The most able, in particular, are on track to make even better progress than in previous years across many subjects because teachers aim high.” - Ofsted



GCSE Results Day – 2020

Congratulations to the Stockport School Class of 2020!

Our amazing Year 11 GCSE students of 2020, today celebrated with the collection of their long awaited GCSE results.

Whilst their time at Stockport School may have been cut short in late spring of this year, through no fault of their own, and their final few weeks together taken from them, our outgoing Year 11 students were today, able to celebrate their incredible success and see all of their hard work, effort and determination to achieve recognised with the release of their long awaited GCSE results.

In what has been an incredibly challenging year for us all, our Year 11 students, parents/carers, and staff have also had the additional high-profile pressure and uncertainty in recent weeks, of what their actual GCSE results might look like based upon Department for Education and Ofqual interventions. I am delighted to report today however, that our students were able to receive the GCSE grades that they rightly deserved, which were a true measure of their actual abilities, and to which they can be very proud of in the years to come.

Whilst our outgoing Year 11 students may no longer be students of the school and our influence over their future development may have diminished, I am reassured in the knowledge that as those students move forward in life, their experience and time at Stockport School will undoubtedly serve them well. As a Year group, and as individuals within it, I am proud to have seen them develop into well-rounded, strong, confident and articulate young people, whom through their experiences of growing up together in amongst the vibrant Stockport School community will not be deterred by the incredible events of this year. I am confident that they will each go forward with drive, ambition and ingenuity to create a successful pathway to their own future success.

Our students have worked incredibly hard and shown a phenomenal commitment to their studies over the past five years. I would like to wish each and every one of our outgoing Year 11 students all the success in the world, as they very much deserve it!

On behalf of all of the staff at Stockport School, I would also like to wholeheartedly thank the parents and carers of our Year 11 students, for the incredible support that they have given to their child and the school over the past 5 years.

Congratulations once again to each every one of our amazing Year 11 students, and well done!
