Cumbria Education Trust (CET) is delighted with the GCSE results attained by the students who attend one of the three secondary schools within the Trust.

The Headteacher of The Whitehaven Academy, Nigel Youngman, commented, “This morning has been a chance to celebrate with students who have overcome huge challenges over the past few years. Results this year have been hard won and it is satisfying to see students achieve success across a range of subjects.”
The Headteacher of Workington Academy, Mark Bedford added, “Our students reflect our ethos of ‘Be the Best You Can Be’ with each student striving for their own personal success. Today is about celebrating some of the incredible achievements of our young people and we are incredibly proud of the students who have achieved the results required to move on to sixth form, college or an apprenticeship and we wish them well for the future.”
The Headteacher of William Howard School, Kath Pigdon, said, “Today’s GCSE results have shown the resilience and dedication that our Cumbrian youngsters have given to their studies. As we continue to work through the cost of living crisis, it is astounding that our students have achieved such great results.
