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.

We are delighted to see so many students reach top grades in their courses including:

  • Erin      A*AA who is going on to study Physiological Science at Newcastle
  • Ewan   A*AA who is going on to study Politics at Newcastle
  • Anna    A*A*B who is going on to study English Literature and Classics at Edinburgh
  • Josh    A*AA   who is going on to study Maths at Leeds
  • Ellen    Distinction *AB who is going on to study International Business Management with French at Northumbria
  • Joe      A*AB who is taking a year out before going to university

 

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:

  • Anna Hornby              1st in History from Newcastle
  • Reuben Brown            1st in Maths from Leeds
  • Charlotte Hallowell      1st in Maths from Warwick

 

Congratulations to them and all of our other former students who are celebrating success this summer since moving on from Longbenton.
