LCHS is celebrating the best results in the school’s long history. As a community, last year was a huge challenge, not least because of our Ofsted inspection, and it is testament to our students, staff and the support of families that, despite this, we are celebrating the best headline improvements in the city.
We are now able to confirm that our school has achieved a positive Progress 8 score overall and is outperforming many schools both locally and nationally. The progress of our students from entering our school is greater than national. In English Baccalaureate subjects, with fifty percent of students entered, we are also above national. Furthermore, students whose first language is not English perform significantly better at LCHS than they do nationally. Add to that a provision for special educational needs students and those students who are entitled to pupil premium that is above national and you will see that LCHS is a school that not only has great ambition for its students but is also able to support all our students to ensure they succeed in achieving that ambition.
Here are a few headline results:
Our link with families is imperative. It is evident in the improvements in results over the past 3 years, our attendance improving so dramatically, and our exclusions reducing so swiftly.
We are one of the few schools in our area that can show such an outstanding improvement in results over the past 3 years but for us, this is just the beginning. We have no intention on stopping, but instead will use this to drive us further, beyond all of our competitors.
There is something very exciting and special happening at LCHS – an exciting and vibrant education which is making a difference to young people's lives every day.
We are exceptionally proud of our results this year. 60% of our students have gained a pass in English and Maths. This is a 12% improvement on last year and a 17% improvement since 2015. Our English results have improved by 17% in one year and our maths by 10%.
Our students have gained the grades they deserve and our staff have worked exceptionally hard to help them every step of the way.
This is a great day for LCHS - the best results for over a decade!
Patrick and Ben, who train for kayak racing with Lincoln Canoe Club, were selected onto the Super Regional Squad (SRS) as part of the GB talent pathway in British Canoeing at the start of 2017. This summer, they travelled to Neerpelt, Belgium with the SRS to take part in the 37th Open Flemish Championships, their first international competition. Both boys proceeded to semi-finals and finals in several events and came away with silver medals.
Their success continued back in the UK where they competed in a National event in September. Again, both boys proceeded to finals in their events. Ben came away with a gold and 2 silvers for U16s. Patrick came away with an U16 bronze. Congratulations to you both!
On 15th-18th March 2017 a group of 32 students made a cultural visit to Paris. We visited the Musée d’Orsay which houses a wealth of artistic treasures while also being of architectural interest. We viewed the spectacular cathedral of Notre Dame, from a bateau mouche and up close, and climbed the Eiffel Tower. The next day we relaxed at the Disneyland Paris resort.
Charles Cox made the following comments about the trip:
It was one of the most enjoyable experiences that I’ve had during my time at LCHS. I really enjoyed sightseeing in Paris and visiting famous historical sights and museums. I made plenty of new friends and enjoyed visiting Disneyland with them. The highlight of my trip was either shopping down the Champs Elysées or meeting the iconic Mickey Mouse!
