Some cracking results at Archbishop Holgate’s School in York, which have been hailed by head of school, Alexis Green-Harding:
“Following our excellent Sixth Form results last week, we are happy that our Year 11 students have also performed exceptionally across the full range of GCSE and BTEC qualifications.
“We are delighted for all our students and their individual achievements. These results are a testament to the hard work and dedication of both students and staff.
“The students have risen to the challenges of the GCSE qualifications and we are so proud of their diligence, resilience and determination to succeed; we are delighted with the young people that they have become.
“The students leave us today to move on to a range of exciting next steps and pathways. Over their five years they have developed the qualities and attributes that will ensure that they are a success on the next part of their journey.”
A total of 86% of all students passed their English GCSE, 80% of our students passed their Maths GCSE, with 78% of our students achieving a pass in both English and Maths. A superb achievement given the rigour of these qualifications and challenges of the past two years.
And 59% of the year group secured at least one grade 7, 8, 9 or Distinction/Distinction*, which they should be extremely proud of.
Archbishops offered a special mention to the 45 students who achieved 8 or more qualifications at grades 7, 8 and 9 or Distinction/Distinction*.
Nick Avery, assistant head and head of Year 11, said:
“The excellent grades that the students have achieved are a result of their hard work, diligence and resourcefulness throughout the year.
“It has been wonderful to celebrate with the students and their families today, and to see so many students delighted with their outcomes. As our students progress into the Sixth Form, apprenticeships or employment I hope they take with them all they have learned during their time at Archbishop Holgate’s School, including our values of Justice, Compassion, Forgiveness and Trust.
“They should be really proud of their achievements, and I wish them all every success in the future.”
