‘I am very overwhelmed but happy!’ Students at The Mount celebrate excellent GCSEs

The Mount Year 11s celebrate

The Mount School York is celebrating an outstanding set of GCSE results which saw 8 and 9 grades the order of the day for many.

Among those celebrating today were Suki, who was ‘overwhelmed’ by her results. “I am very overwhelmed but happy!” she said. “Thank you to my teachers for all the support over the last two years it’s been really helpful.”

Equally enthused with her results, Millie added, “I am incredibly happy, especially with my maths results! My teachers and all the staff have been so helpful.

“My maths teachers gave me a lot of support by running extra sessions and offering help. They are amazing people!”

Despite the disruption to their typical teaching delivery, the year 11 pupils continued to flourish as they quickly adapted to new methods of online learning as proven in the results they achieved.

To continue the festivities through into the afternoon, the girls are planning a picnic on Knavesmire. This wonderful opportunity will enable the group to unwind and relax after an apprehensive couple of months awaiting results.

Expressing his delight, principal David Griffiths, said: “The girls have achieved an excellent set of results that reflects all the hard work of our girls and staff over the past two years. I am really proud of all the girls have achieved and look forward to seeing them continue to flourish in our Sixth Form.”
