Christ the King delighted with GCSE results
Staff at Christ the King Catholic High School in Southport were delighted on 24 August as Year 11 students collected their GCSE exam results. Many pupils achieved eight or more higher grades (grades 7-9) with a record number of pupils achieving distinction grades in the school’s best ever vocational results. The results reflect the hard work of teachers over the past five years, who have provided extra help to pupils in school and after. Additional support included twilight pizza revision nights, one-to-one external tutoring and holiday sessions. A spokesperson from Christ the King Catholic High School said: “Our Year 11 pupils have been inspirational in terms of their hard-working attitude and resilience. “They will be an asset to future employers as they have learnt to succeed in the face of adversity. We are so immensely proud of you, Year 11!” During results day, pupils can enrol at CTK6, Christ the King’s thriving and successful sixth form centre offering a wide range of A-level and Level 3 vocational subjects alongside an exceptional personal development programme. CTK6 is also home to the Southport Football Club U19 academy - SFC Academy @ CTK6. This is a unique opportunity to pursue a varied curriculum of Level 3 and A-level qualifications so that football scholars do not need to limit themselves to sport qualifications whilst pursuing their footballing ambitions. In September 2024 the school is hoping to be able to offer the first U19 women’s academy in the North West. Christ the King is holding its open evening on Thursday 14 September 2023, 6pm - 8.30pm with headteacher presentations at 6.15pm and 7.15pm. The sixth form open evening is on Wednesday 18 October from 5pm- 8pm and is open to all current Year 10 and 11 pupils in the local and North West area.
