A SECONDARY school says it has made progress since it became part of the Shaw Education Trust.

The Leigh-based school says that it achieved progress in its summer GCSE results.

Last academic year, the school saw an increase in the number of students obtaining qualifications in English and Maths, as well as an increase in the progress of both high attaining and disadvantaged students, for the second year running.

Despite the improvements seen in science, Westleigh says humanities and languages still form significant areas for improvement for the forthcoming year.

Principal Carlton Bramwell said: “We are so proud of the achievements of all our students. The progress made since joining Shaw Education Trust has been outstanding and we can’t wait to see how improvements continue to grow.

“Like last year, focus remains on stability and consistency in driving outcomes across science, humanities and languages. We have already evidenced a positive impact on pupils and can’t wait to celebrate their future successes.”

He added: “We have had an exciting term so far, with guest speakers, events and great progress being made. It is an exciting year ahead full of potential.”
