“Silverdale students continue to achieve outstanding A-level results. These are even better than last year and just one percent short of our best ever results the year before, when we were top of the city.

“With 90% of all grades at A* to C, it shows that by studying at Silverdale Sixth Form with our fantastic teachers and facilities, and by working hard, our students can achieve exceptionally strong outcomes – to ensure they can follow their chosen pathway to a bright future.

"On behalf of the staff and governors at Silverdale, and the Trustees of Chorus Education Trust, we offer our congratulations to all our students, of whom we are extremely proud".

Anyone interested in joining Silverdale Sixth Form is welcome to attend our opening evening on Thursday 24th October.
