Congratulations to the Year 11 pupils at York High School who have done so well in challenging circumstances.

“There are some excellent results this year to be celebrated and for many pupils their hard work and consistent effort has been rewarded,” the school said. 

“Well done for your continued resilience and high aspiration which has resulted in success.”

And this is the message from headteacher Rod Sims:

People shouldn’t forget how hard it has been for this cohort of pupils who have suffered severe disruption during two years of their education. The dedicated staff at YHS have worked tirelessly to ensure success for our pupils.

Well done to Year 11 and we wish you every success for the future.

Alex Exelby deserves special congratulations for a fantastic set of results, as well as Connor Power who achieved grade 9s in maths, chemistry and physics.

Other notable achievements include Jasmine Andrews who attained an excellent set of results, including a grade 9 in English Literature and grade 8s in History and Religious Studies, and Lillie Brown who achieved grade 8s in English Language and Religious Studies and a grade 9 in History.
