Young people at a Cheshire specialist school supporting children with autism and social, emotional and mental health difficulties have been celebrating their recent exam results.
High Peak School, in Disley, is part of Kedleston Group and offers both residential and day placements. The school supports children who may have previously experienced significant educational challenges and disruption to their schooling.
This year 100% of High Peak’s students gained Maths and English qualifications and across the school young people achieved 27 GCSEs in Maths, English, Combined Science, Chemistry, Statistics and Hospitality and Catering.
Across the school, seven students have moved on to the next stage of their educational journey with two or more GCSEs, and all students have left with at least four meaningful qualifications each.
A wide range of qualifications – both academic and vocational - were achieved including English, Maths, Science, Statistics, History, Hospitality and Catering, Physical Education, Performing Arts, Construction and Duke of Edinburgh.
Dr Lynda Mitchell, Kedleston Group’s Director of Quality and Compliance, said: “These results are the product of the young people’s resilience, determination, hard work and commitment. We are incredibly proud of them all.
“The qualifications will serve as a great base to build future success and give them an excellent platform to continue their learning and achievements as they move on from High Peak.”
