EVERYONE WELCOME!

Students at William Hulme’s Grammar School are celebrating receiving an excellent set of A Level results today. These included many strong individual successes, as well as improvements across the whole of the Sixth Form.

The number of A Level entries at the school achieving A* to B grades was 45%, an increase on last year, with 13% of entries gaining the top A*-A grades. The overall pass rate was an impressive 99%.

Importantly, the majority of entries across the cohort were for rigorous academic qualifications favoured by the best universities, with a very high percentage of students successfully going on to study STEM subjects at university. For a number of the Sixth Formers, they will be the first in their family to go onto Higher Education.

Peter Mulholland, Principal of William Hulme’s Grammar School, said:

“I am delighted for our Sixth Form students, who are celebrating some excellent results today. In particular, it is fantastic to see so many of them achieving the grades they need to secure the university place of their choice and take the first steps towards the careers to which they aspire.

“Importantly, this high achievement in the Sixth Form cascades down throughout our school, encouraging younger students to believe in their own ability and demonstrating what hard work can achieve. Our Sixth Formers can take great pride in their results, as can our staff who work closely with each of them and are always on hand to give them the extra support they need to push themselves that bit further.

“We look forward to welcoming a new cohort into our superb new Sixth Form Centre this September – both those that come up through our school and those joining us from all over Greater Manchester. I know that these results and destinations will set a strong example for them, inspiring them to strive for equally high standards and aim for even better outcomes in the future.”

Governor gets A Grade

Governor and Old Hulmeian, Gurpreet Singh, achieved an A grade in A Level Panjabi, having entered as a private candidate only a few weeks before the exam. The former pupil (1995-2002) last attended results day 17 years ago where he achieved exam success with an A in French.

Gurpreet commented: "I am delighted. I would not have achieved the success that I have today had it not been for my teachers at WHGS encouraging my passion for learning languages many years ago. I would like to especially thank Ms McNicholas, Examinations Officer, who gave me my results today and 17 years ago. Finally, I would like to congratulate all of our pupils on their fantastic results - I know the hard work it takes to get the grades that our pupils have achieved. I wish them every success."

Peter Mulholland, Principal of William Hulme’s Grammar School, said:

“Gurpreet is an excellent example to us all that you never stop learning and we are delighted that he can share his achievement on such a successful day for the school.”
