The Sunday Times has recently published its list of the highest achieving schools in the UK, with Lymm High School being ranked as the 6th highest performing comprehensive school in the whole of the North West, and the 24th highest even when selective grammar schools are included. The list takes account of the numbers of students gaining the highest grades at both GCSE and A’ level. Mr Williams said:
“Whilst we are not driven by performance in league tables – and certainly not these particular ones – this news does further underline the fact that we have made massive progress over the last couple of years and are certainly now one of the highest performing schools in the region. In a week when I’ve witnessed incredible performances of our students in Les Miserables as well as watching the first XV winning the semi-final of the Cheshire Cup, I am feeling especially proud of all our students and staff.”

The school is required to consult on its admissions policy once every seven years, even if no changes are proposed. For this reason, we are now consulting on the draft admissions policy for 2019/20 – see here for details. No changes from the current admissions policy are proposed.
We launched Gold DofE this week to interested Year 12 students, and we urge all students to consider getting involved in an extremely worthwhile and valued award. Please check carefully the expedition dates and ensure that your child can commit fully to all aspects of the award before returning the reply slip and deposit to secure a place. For students who have not previously completed Silver DofE, the Gold Award will take 18 months minimum, for students who have done Silver it will be 12 months minimum. Letters will be available from Monday 30th October from Sixth Form Student Services.
