Great Sankey High School & Barrow Hall College students are celebrating after another incredible set of results.  Yet again our results and the progress of our students have continued to improve, reinforcing our position as one of the highest performing schools and sixth form colleges in the area. Students performed exceptionally well across all subject disciplines at GCSE and A Level with results continuing to exceed national benchmarks.

We look forward to welcoming the usual high proportion of Year 11 students to Barrow Hall College in September where they will continue to enjoy success and achievement on the back of such fantastic results.  Furthermore, we wish our Year 13 students the best of luck in their next steps having secured placements at some of the most prestigious universities including Oxbridge and on some of the most competitive courses such as medicine, veterinary medicine, dentistry, and law.
