Press Release Key Stage 4 - August 2023

Many Chipping Sodbury School students are celebrating individual success with some strong GCSE results. Despite the enormous challenges faced by the students, their families and staff, individual results reflect all the hard work and dedication during the past two academic years; this is a positive reflection of the school community. GCSE exams are a significant milestone in the academic journey of our students and once again, the progress made by so many individuals showcase the dedication and determination of our students. The vast majority of students are in a good position to move to their chosen next stage including A levels, vocational courses and apprenticeships.


Headteacher, Katherine Turner said ‘I am delighted for those students who consistently demonstrated our school values of responsibility and aspiration and who had a very positive attitude to their learning and demonstrated resilience to the challenges faced. There are many individual successes for students who have had to cope with numerous personal challenges. This is a reflection of the progress these students have made and the hard work by our young people, staff and governors. I wish to pay particular tribute to the continuous support provided by families not just over the past few months but throughout Key Stages 3 and 4. We enjoy strong and positive relationships which impact on the outcomes for individuals. This adds to the tremendous successes of our Post 16 students last week. We are very much looking forward to welcoming many of our students back into our Cotswold Edge 6th Form where students succeed and reach their potential.’
