A warm welcome from Pate's Grammar School

Earlier this week we delighted in celebrating the unprecedented success of our Year 13 students, and today was the turn of our amazing Year 11 pupils who have achieved a stunning set of GCSE grades. This year over 56% of the grades were a ‘9’, the highest possible, and 95% of the grades were above a ‘7’. These are incredible figures and again huge thanks must go to the staff at the school who have worked so hard to support the students during a period of such uncertainty and challenge. The majority of the students will progress to the Sixth Form here at Pate’s and we look forward to seeing them thrive in their A Level studies.

After a turbulent and unsettling 18 months it has been lovely to celebrate the success of our students this week. They have achieved tremendous outcomes and we are very proud of them!

The Sunday Times State Secondary School of the Year 2020

Pate’s Grammar School, Cheltenham

 

I am thrilled to announce that, once again, Pate’s has been awarded The Sunday Times State Secondary School of the Year!  It is a great honour for any school to receive this most prestigious of awards – but to receive it twice is unprecedented.  This award is given to one individual UK school which has delivered outstanding exam results, and, importantly, shown an exceptional wealth and breadth of educational opportunities.   For us to receive this award is a powerful endorsement of the ‘Pate’s Way’, which places challenge, fun and creative collaboration at the forefront of school life, and creates such a positive and vibrant ethos.  Indeed, The Sunday Times were incredibly impressed by the vitality and independence of our students, and, for me, that says it all.  I am immensely proud that Pate’s stands out as a shining example of what is possible when we dare to be different, where priority is given to helping young people achieve whatever they themselves want to achieve, and where simply ‘being nice’ is uppermost in everyone’s minds.

 

“Pate’s is consistently among the most successful state grammar schools in the country, and this year’s crop of examination results are among the very best it has ever produced. Yet this is no academic hothouse.  Children benefit from a rounded education where academic success is a by-product of a culture of achievement engrained in every fibre of the school.  Success in all walks of school life is celebrated and pupils go on to flourish at some of our best universities, building on the academic and social foundations provided by this exceptional school.”  Alastair McCall, Editor of The Sunday Times Schools' Guide, Parent Power
