We are proud to congratulate all our students on achieving another fantastic set of results with an overall pass rate of 99%!

We are very proud of all our students  who have achieved a brilliant set of results. It is incredible to see that a quarter of all entries achieved an A* and almost half of all our students achieved two A*-B grade qualifications. Gerard Moran, Head Teacher and Lisa Byron, Head of School  

In a new category which recognises advanced vocational exams, state schools including Archbishop Holgate’s School, in York, St John’s School and Sixth Form College in Bishop Auckland, Carmel College in Darlington and St Bede’s Catholic Comprehensive School in Peterlee were among schools featured in the top 100.
