Huge praise from the headteacher of Huntington School in York, Matt Smith, after a stellar performance by their Year 11s.

Mr Smith said:

Congratulations to our Year 11 students of 2023! This cohort of students have experienced significant disruption over the course of their secondary school education, and we couldn’t be prouder of their achievements.
75% of all our students were entered for the English Baccaulaureate (a suite of qualifications consisting of English, maths, science, a humanity and a modern foreign language). The national average for entry is 38% – this demonstrates our commitment towards providing an ambitious curriculum for students at Huntington School.
It was lovely to see so many smiling faces this morning. Our students deserve huge recognition for the way they have overcome significant challenges and gone on to achieve some excellent grades. We wish them all the very best in the future!
