(Brave, Resourceful, have Integrity, have Grit, have High Standards and are Tolerant).
Every month, our subject leaders select a ‘student of the month’. This is the student that has embodied being BRIGHT. Here is a photograph of some of our winners for November 2019.
Pop band New Rules took time out from supporting Little Mix on the North East leg of their tour to perform for our year 7 and 8 students in school. The band gave a dynamic live performance of their latest singles alongside a question and answer session with some of our students getting a chance to meet the band for photos and autographs afterwards.
The band were overwhelmed with the support they received from our students and left school to begin rehearsals for their coming performance at the Arena.
Congratulations to our year 11 students on their results.
There have been some outstanding individual performances with 60% of students who accessed the mainstream curriculum achieving 9 – 4 grades in English and maths. 74% achieved 9 – 4 grades in English with 66% of students achieving 9 – 4 grades in maths.
Students also achieved some excellent results in a number of areas and we are particularly pleased with our triple science results with a significant number of students achieving grades 9 – 7. Our design technology, computer science and business studies results are also extremely pleasing with some very positive progress scores. Obtaining good GCSE results is not easy and our students have worked extremely hard in the various subjects.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our year 11 students for their hard work and dedication to enable them to achieve these results. I would also like to thank our staff too. They have worked tirelessly and I am enormously grateful to them for their hard work. My gratitude also extends to our extremely supportive Governing Board. Governors have worked very hard to ensure that we have everything in place to enable us to continue to provide the best education for our students.
