Joy and laughter at Sherburn High School


“After a challenging 3 years for our Year 13 students, there were tears of joy and laughter when they opened their A-level results envelopes this morning,” says Dan Kirby, head of sixth form at Sherburn High School.

“They depart us for top universities and apprenticeships across the UK, from University of Warwick toThe University of Edinburgh and a range of courses including Law, Geography, History, Maths and even Cyber Security. 

“Despite their atypical journey, they’ve kept their spirits up, worked really hard and demonstrated real grit and determination befitting of our Team Sherburn spirit.  As a school, we are delighted that they can now move forward into the next phase of their lives and we wish them all the very best for the future.”

He said they were “the most resilient bunch yet”.

Headteacher Miriam Oakley commented “Yet again our Sherburn students have done us proud.  I can’t wait to hear about their successes beyond life at Sherburn High School – they completely and utterly deserve the excellent results they have received today.”
