Higher Education Success!

The item below this one celebrates the A Level success of St.Chad’s students but we always encourage our students to think beyond GCSEs and A Levels and aim for the very highest they can in terms of higher education and careers. I am always delighted when I am informed of past St.Chad’s students who have achieved highly from the excellent start they had here and was pleased to receive this week the first of the many letters I receive from universities letting us know of former St.Chad’s students’ successes. The three students that have been commended from Edge Hill University in this case are:

Charlotte Gerard 1st Class BA (Hons) Health and Social Well-Being

Daniel Conroy 2:1 BSC (Hons) Web Systems Development

Penny Davies 2:1 BA (Hons) English

Well done to Charlotte, Danny and Penny (pictured)! All of our students, whether they are in Year 13 or Year 7 should aspire to the example of our alumni! Well done to the staff of St.Chad’s who gave these three and many others such a good education.


Examination Success!

alevelresults14There was much to celebrate for St.Chad’s 6th Form when they came in for their examination results. There were some outstanding results for students in the Lower and Upper 6th with many of the older students achieving grades that will allow them entry into university to study their chosen courses in Economics, Law, Chemistry, Education, Marketing, Nursing and many others. The school was also celebrating the completion of improved facilities and course offers for students. Headteacher Andrew Keeley said,’ I am very proud of and pleased for all the students in achieving excellent results. In a year where it has been widely acknowledged that exam boards have been told to raise A Level grade boundaries to make it harder to pass, St.Chad’s students have achieved highly, including gaining the rare A* grade. We are continuing to improve the 6th Form offer at St.Chad’s and students returning to the school in September will see a marked difference in facilities and courses. As a Language College and Confucius Classroom, it is pleasing that we achieved A Level A*/A grades in Chinese and Polish for the second year running. Students from all Halton schools are welcome to enrol at St.Chad’s and should contact the school for details or come into school on GCSE results day or the week beginning the 1st of September to enrol.’

Parent Governor Election

The Governing Body of St Chad's invites you to stand for election as a parent governor, or nominate another parent to do so.  In our school we have provision for 2 parent governors and as we are currently re-constituting the governing body in the light of government legislation, there are currently 2 vacancies.
The governing body, with the Headteacher, has overall responsibility for the running of the school. Governing bodies have three core strategic functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

As a parent governor you would be a representative of the parents, but you would not be mandated to vote on their behalf. It may be useful to get the general feelings from parents on various issues from time to time, but in seeking to fill the post of parent governor, the governing body are looking for someone who will help them see the school from the widest possible viewpoint. Parents are vital to the work of the governing body. As a parent governor you will be a governor in your own right with the same responsibilities as everyone else to work together as part of the governing body for the good of the school.
