Results 2022: GCSES and 6th Form Results

Shirley High School has been under new leadership since September 2019

Shirley High School is delighted to announce the best GCSES results in the history of our school.  The first set of validated external exams since 2019 has shown a significant increase in the attainment of our pupils and is testimony to their hard work and resilience shown through the last two years.

We are again proud to be one of the most improved schools in the borough of Croydon and would like to thank both pupils and staff for their achievements.  We are committed to ensuring that all students can engage in subjects and learning that ignite their passion and provides them with the skills and knowledge that truly prepares them for the next stage of their educational journey.

We are delighted that so many of our Year 11 students have enroled into our 6th form and extremely proud of all our Year 13 students who headed off to university, many the first in their families to do so. All students that applied for university received a place with 6% heading to Russell group universities and a number of students securing higher-level apprenticeship courses.

Since 2019 we have redesigned and reshaped teaching and learning at our school, and we are relentlessly embedding our new values and learning journey which underpin all the significant actions we are taking. We look forward to sharing further information of our successes as we build on our signifiant momentum.
