Exam Results August 2017
A Level Results:
Headteacher Paul Quinn, of Longbenton High School, said: “Our students have worked incredibly hard, as their A Level results demonstrate, and we are all immensely proud. I am also extremely proud of our wonderful and dedicated teachers, support staff, governors and parents who have helped to ensure these excellent grades have been achieved.
Longbenton showed a 97% pass rate at A Level with an impressive 41% of grades at A*-B and 69% at A*-C. Our Average Points per Entry (APE) of 33.3 is well above figure for schools nationally. A high proportion of those who applied for university have secured their places at universities including Warwick, Durham, Leeds, Newcastle, Sheffield and Liverpool. They will go on to study courses such as maths, physics, social work, business and history. I would like to wish all of our students the best of luck for the future.”
Many congratulations to our Year 11 students on their GCSE results. They show much success from students of all abilities and will allow them to move forward towards their next step be that with us in our Sixth Form, in further education elsewhere or through an apprenticeship. They should be particularly proud as their achievements come at a time of huge change at GCSE with the introduction of the 9 to 1 grading scale and exams that are designed to be tougher. As a school we are proud to celebrate with our students and wish them the very best for whatever their next step may be.
