Welcome to St. George’s School

WELCOME BACK
September 2014

We are pleased to announce that St George’s is only one of two Blackpool Schools to improve in GCSE headline figures of English and Maths plus three GCSE’s A*-C.

We have achieved our best ever ranking against other schools and produced a 13% improvement in English, when National results fell.

We have seen more subjects improve and exceed National Averages than in any previous year.  TEAM SG is continuing to get better!

The school has witnessed a significant improvement in the past two years in GCSE results, applications exceeding the previous best year on year and over £2million in investments with further anticipated.

For those that know how good we are please tell your friends.

Chair of Governors Dcn Ann Wren Visits our school garden with Year 9

DCN ANN2

The school year is up and running at pace, lessons are developing along their various courses. In addition Year 7 all know their way around, years 10 & 11 ‘prep’ sessions are underway after school, the sports teams are being selected and extra music lessons organised.

One example of ‘work in progress’ is in Year 9 Geography. The topics of the moment are ‘Human Impact’ and ‘Sustainability’ of our world.
Chair of Governors Dcn. Ann Wren visited them and joined in one of the lessons. They took her to the school garden and continued the lesson in the ‘field’.

The school garden is an example of the community working together. The children had highlighted themselves in class how lots of fresh food is transported across the world – when we could easily ‘grow it at home’. They recognised the potential for damaging our environment and costing more money.

This joint project with our school, community volunteers and local businesses has created a sustainable area which produces fruit and vegetables in an environment that can be shared by all. Assisting and supporting learning is an important aspect of this – it brings classroom lessons into reality all on our school site!

 

Press Release : GCSE Results 2014

IMG_4228

St George’s School are extremely pleased with our results in a year that predicted the greatest level of volatility to exams in the history of Education.  Early warnings from Government and Examining bodies of a fall in results and a more difficult process did not stop Team SG recording an improvement on last year and our best set of results since becoming a Church of England Academy.

The headline figure of 5A*-C including English and Maths is 51%.

Top performing subjects are Maths, Art, Music, Health Studies, Geography, English Language and English Literature.

All of this success was achieved during a difficult and ever changing educational landscape.  Well done to all staff and students you deserve this.
