Sharing the good news at Archbishop Holgate’s School

Year 11 students at Archbishop Holgate’s School “performed exceptionally” their proud head teacher said today.

“Building on our excellent Sixth Form results last week, I am happy to say that our Year 11 students have also performed exceptionally across the full range of GCSE and BTEC qualifications,” said head Andrew Daly.

“We are delighted for all our students and the outstanding progress they have made.”

Another proud student

A total of 88% of all students passed their English GCSE, 82% of students passed their maths GCSE, with 80% 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.”

The spread of good results was across all subject areas, the school said. Altogether 69% of the year group secured at least one grade 7, 8, 9 or Distinction*, “which they should be extremely proud of”. 

Special mention should also be made to the 31 students who achieved 9 or more 7, 8 and 9 grade qualifications.

Deputy head Penny McDermott said: “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.”

Hannah Turvey, Head of Year 11, said: “The diligence, resourcefulness and hard work of our students has been reflected in their individual results and shared today with staff, parents and friends through tears, laughter, delight, relief and a sense of a job well done.”
