This morning Teesdale School celebrated another year of superb GCSE results with 77 coveted grade 9s awarded to students across the year group.
There were many brilliant individual performances to celebrate, including Scarlett Jones who topped the Teesdale charts with nine grade 9s in all subjects. Ben Arundel gained eight grade 9s and one grade 8 and Amelia Dupuy was awarded seven grade 9s and a grade 8. Kirsty McLachlan was also among the top performers, receiving six grade 9s, two grade 8s and a grade 7. Katie Thompson achieved five grade 9s, two grade 8s and two grade 7s while Emma Gregory was awarded three grade 9s, two grade 8s and three grade 7s.
This year marks the third consecutive year of outstanding GCSE results at Teesdale School. This continued excellence has played a part in the school achieving the awards and accolades that it has over the past year including the prestigious Sunday Times North East State Secondary School of the Year Award. Now, many of the cohort will take up the exciting opportunity of joining Teesdale Sixth Form; secure in the knowledge that last week it produced fantastic A level results among students.
Head of School, Clare Ellis, said:
““We are delighted with the determination our young people have shown in these uncertain times. We are delighted with the results they have achieved and it's important to remember the grades inside the envelopes they nervously opened today are a reflection of the talent, kindness and tenacity that makes them the special people that we are so proud of.
“Our students may not have sat in an exam hall this year, but in reality, each day in school was a test of their attitude and aptitude and they have passed with flying colours.”
