GCSE results for South Lakes Schools



Each school is set a target by the Government, which is based on the abilities of the year 11 students in each school. The target is ‘high’ or aspirational, and meeting it puts the school in the top 25% of similar schools.


Settlebeck was the only school locally to exceed this target.


In addition, the % of students making at least 3 levels of progress in both English and Maths was the highest at Settlebeck School.
