GCSE Results 2019

We are pleased to report our exam success in 2019. We are a truly inclusive school and do not ‘off roll’ to enhance our performance figures. All our results therefore include a number of pupils who attended alternative provision. At Westborough High School pupils follow a curriculum which lets them study a wide range of subjects from physics to drama. These results now mean that our 2019 cohort will be able attend a range of high quality colleges, sixth forms and apprenticeships next year; we look forward to hearing of their continued success.

Congratulations to all!
