Congratulations to all of our Kirkham Grammar School Fifth Year pupils...enjoy your celebrations!

I am always astounded how well our pupils perform year on year at GCSE. This is made even more remarkable when you look at all the other successes that run alongside an excellent set of results.

The pupils at Kirkham Grammar School truly do shine in our aim to educate the whole child. Once again, we are celebrating another year of record breaking results alongside significant successes in Sport, Drama, Music, CCF, Duke of Edinburgh and other areas. This alongside the significantly impressive set of GCSE results that well exceed any national averages are what we strive to achieve at KGS.

Well done.
