Crompton House School Celebrates 90 Years

Founders Day on Friday 30th September was a wonderful celebration of 90 years of Crompton House School. Bishop Mark Davies presided over two communion services and Canon Maurice Smith, Director of Education for the Manchester Diocese, gave the address illustrating foundations and faith through the game of Jenga. Thanks were given to Mary Crompton and Anne Ormerod of the Crompton family, who had the forethought in 1926 to establish the school. Opened on 1st October 1926 with just 25 pupils the school has grown to over 1300 pupils with over 150 teachers and support staff.  founders-montage-jpegOn the first day of the Autumn Term this year the picture of the pupils in 1926 was recreated with a Year 7 class of 2016.  1926-2016In June our Year 11 students presented the school with a flag and flag-pole, and at our Open Evening in September our Year 6 visitors created a Monet style finger painting of the school house. On Founders Day all Crompton House pupils and staff were given a commemorative metal pin badge courtesy of the CHS PTFA. Earlier in the week two pupils dressed from 1926 visited classes in the school and then met the musicians and other participants at the Founders Day service.montage-spirit-jpeg

August was a great month for our Year 11 and 13 students when they received excellent GCSE and A Level results. At A Level the overall pass rate of 99% was higher than last year, 50% of the grades were A*, A or B (higher than last year) and 25 of the 28 subjects achieved 100% passes, again higher than last year. In total eight students achieved 3 grade A passes or better. At GCSE the proportion of pupils achieving 5 A* to C grades including English and Maths is 77%, higher than last August’s results and over a third of the grades achieved were A* or A.

Mr Newell, Headteacher, said “ I am very pleased to congratulate our students for their brilliant  results. They have been a credit to the school throughout their time with us.  As well as being hard working academically they have been outstanding in all the other aspects of the school including the Duke of Edinburgh Award, Drama, Music, Sport and Charity work.  They have been supported by enthusiastic and hard-working teachers, their parents and each other.”
