As we reported, there are some great results from Huntington School in York today.
It means four of their students have secured places at the University of Oxford.
Here’s what director of sixth form Chris Hardwell said:
I am extremely pleased that despite the difficult circumstances of the past two years our students achieved the best ever examination results at Huntington Sixth Form.
These outstanding results are testimony to the hard work and dedication of every single one of our students and I am immensely proud of their exceptional achievements.
And this from head teacher Matt Smith:
Congratulations to all of our students on making it through an incredibly tough two years. Our students were unable to sit their GCSEs in 2020 and so this summer’s exams were the first external assessments they took. It’s a tremendous achievement and we are very proud of them.
The determination shown by every single one of our students has been nothing short of extraordinary. They have risen to every challenge and deserve huge congratulations for their individual and collective achievements.
On behalf of our students, I would like to thank all my colleagues who have worked hard to ensure that our students were fully prepared to tackle the examinations. Their support has been crucial.
And lastly, each of our students is more than any grade. The resilience they have shown under such conditions is remarkable. They are all exceptional, inspiring and talented young people and we couldn’t be prouder.
