The A-level A*-B % of 56% is one of the highest in the Tees Valley. Headteacher Simon White commented that “there is no greater pleasure than seeing young people excel and fulfil their dreams. To see so many students thrilled at their exceptional exam results was uplifting for all of our staff, parents, governors and students who have worked collaboratively and tirelessly over the last two years of study. We wish our young people every success as they head off to university, further training and employment”.
