Exam Results September 2019

A Level Results:

Congratulations to our students who are receiving their A level results today on their well-deserved success.  A lot of hard work has gone into achieving this success over the past two years and we are thrilled to see so many of our pupils do so well. This is a stressful time for students who have been awaiting their results it is important that everyone knows that the school will look to support anyone who needs it at this time as they decide on next steps.

As a school we are delighted to see significant improvements in our results on previous years as is shown below. Indeed these results are the highest the school has achieved since the new APE measure was introduced in 2016 with our results being above both national and regional averages.

Of course, the minds of our students getting their results will now turn to the next chapter in their lives, whether that is a place at university, earning an apprenticeship or entering the world of work.  Well done and good luck to all of our young people in whatever they are moving on to.

Supplementary to this, we hear of examples of recent alumni going on to further success across the year but over the summer we have been delighted to hear of these:

More Success for Longbenton Pupils with GCSE Results 2019

A massive well done to our pupils on their GCSE results which are the product of a great deal of hard work and commitment. We could not be prouder of our young people who have been so dedicated to their studies. It is fantastic to see so many of them do so well and to secure the grades that they needed to continue in the NE12 6th Form or go into college while others have the necessary results for apprenticeships and working life.


The school wish to congratulate and thank all students, parents, teachers and support staff for their hard work and determination. We are enormously proud of our school’s teachers who  deserve a huge amount of credit for all that they have done to support students taking new GCSEs which have been deliberately designed to be more difficult, and which have undoubtedly caused increased levels of stress and anxiety for pupils, families and teachers.

Our students deserve to celebrate their results. Behind these statistics there will be many personal success stories and we recognise that the achievements of our young people are due to their hard work, the support of their families and carers as well as our excellent teaching and support staff. Amongst the success stories were Joe 999988776, Emily  999888887A, Bethan  999999887A^, Josh 999999877A* and Maia 988888776. We wish all our students every success for the future.

We were delighted to see over 70% of students achieve a pass in English and Maths and to be able to report a 3 year rising trend on the proportions of pupils achieving the basics measure at with all of these values now being above national averages.

Following on from very good A Level results last week, and the achievements we are seeing at GCSE, it is clear that the progress being made as a school at Longbenton has strong foundations with these results being further evidence of the work that we continue to do as a school to develop excellence in classroom teaching.
