Students' Academic Success

Posted at 2:25 pm on 12th December, 2018

Flixton Girls celebrated student success with an evening to recognise their academic achievements.  

Mrs Hazeldine Headteacher and CEO of the Healthy Learning Trust commented: ‘At the heart of our work at FGS is the deep understanding that academic success is dependent on many things including ambition, self-belief, self-confidence and a ‘can-do’ attitude.  Not only I am thrilled with the girls achievements but also that in our first year with as a Multi Academy Trust we have achieved our best results ever. I am really excited about the future as we work with other schools to help us achieve highly for even more students in the region.”

These results are not a ‘flash in the pan’, they have been consistently high with our overall number of pass grades up from 72% to 75%, a new record for the school. FGS has again delivered results in excess of the national average, building on previous records and Governors, staff, students and parents can all be very proud of our impressive record of success.

Healthy Learning Trust (HLT) Trustee and CEO of the Youth Sport Trust Ali Oliver said: “Sincere congratulations to the whole Flixton community - as the Maori’s say, ‘it takes a village to raise a child’ and Flixton has been that ‘village’ over the last 5 years for girls you have helped raise.”

It was a pleasure to see our Class of 2018 school leavers return and be able to celebrate their academic successes. Many of the students were nominated for a variety of awards and cups with over thirty excellent winners.

The evening was hosted by Mrs Hazeldine with guest speaker Yvonne Harrison, University Academy 92 (UA92) Chief Executive. Yvonne said: ‘Congratulations Flixton Girls on an inspiring Academic Awards Evening, and thank you for asking me to be a part of it on behalf of @UA92MCR. Well done to all on achieving your best and good luck as you continue your paths into education or work.’

With so many great results it is difficult to pick out just a few but special recognition needs to go to

Emma Bristow who achieved seven GCSE passes whilst overcoming the challenges of everyday life living with Cerebral Palsy and now studies Level 3 Photography at Trafford College. Heaba Mansour received the Curie Cup for Science for her exceptional three grade 9s in triple sciences, in addition to the Academic Award for German. Plus Lana Walker for being awarded the Mathematics Cup and Elena Mastin for the English Language Cup.
