Teesdale School and Sixth Form Centre was delighted to receive a letter from Cambridge University earlier this term, commending the performance of ex-student Emma Turner, who is studying Modern and Medieval Languages at the university’s Robinson College. The letter highlighted Emma’s outstanding academic achievements in her first term and the role the teaching she had received from Teesdale has played in this.
Commenting on Emma’s time at Teesdale Sixth Form, Headteacher, Clare Ellis, said: “All of Emma’s teacher’s said she was a delight to teach. Her dedication to her studies and commitment to both extra curricular activities and charitable work made her an outstanding role model and she embodied our school and sixth form ethos."

The letter went on to ask Teesdale Sixth Form if we would consider encouraging other students of Emma's calibre to apply to Cambridge and praising the role that our referencing had played in Emma’s acceptance on the course.
Speaking of the school’s drive to increase the number of applicants securing places at the UK’s most elite universities, Ms Ellis added: "We welcome the comments from Cambridge University and are thrilled that they recognise the academic excellence of our sixth form and our ability as a small school to nurture talent."
