Executive Headteacher's Welcome
Welcome to the Wade Deacon High School website, a glance at which will reveal that it’s been a magnificent year so far. There has been exceptional collaboration between members of staff, our pupils and the community to ensure that all our pupils achieve and progress this year with excellent predictions for continued high standards of achievement next year and future years.
The academic year of 2011-12 was highly successful for our pupils, the school and the local community and we have a commitment to ensure that this academic year is equally, if not more exceptional. In 2012, 76.4% of our Year 11 pupils achieved 5 or more GCSEs at A*- C, including English and Mathematics; this is 18.1% higher than all other maintained schools nationally and higher than any other school in Halton.
As you will see from our new Insight magazine, there have been many events this term, including the opportunity for pupils to visit China and the amazing achievement of the Inspirational Young People Award, which was awarded to our pupils who visited The Gambia. Our music curriculum is thriving with our wonderful choir and bands performing at events across the school and in the community. Also, we look forward to moving into our inspirational new school building in April 2013.
