About Sale High School

Sale High School is a rapidly improving 11-16 mixed gender High School graded as a ‘Good school with Outstanding features’ (June 2015).

Following this glowing Ofsted report, the students of Sale High School built upon this success and achieved outstanding results in 2016, breaking records yet again.

Our students surpassed the 60% boundary for at least 5 A*-C Grades including English and Mathematics and we saw records broken for a full range of subjects in both attainment and student progress. Our progress 8 data is very strong and suggests students at our school achieve a third of a grade above national expectations across the curriculum.

The success of the English Baccalaureate route saw 33% of students achieving this full suite of qualifications which is well above the last published National Average of 24%.

100% of students achieved A* - C in Chemistry, Physics and Biology, 88% in Art, 84% in Drama, 80% in English Language and 80% in Music. Over 85% achieved this benchmark in RE, 73% in History, 76% in Food Technology, 79% in English Literature and 72% in Spanish.

We are proud of our inclusive ethos and that students, whatever their background are achieving so much better than the National Average. Our pupil premium gap is 6% compared to the last published national gap of 27% and is one of the best in Trafford. This means we are serving all our students well.
