Astley Community High School in Seaton Delaval is proud to announce another year of GCSE successes.
Students have once again met the challenges brought by the changes to GCSE assessment with fantastic results. 98% of students achieved Grade 9 to 4 in Business. Science subjects also saw high Grade 9 to 4 pass rates (97% in Biology and over 94% in both Physics and Chemistry). Many students will continue their studies in the Sixth Form at Astley, where a wide range of academic and vocational subjects are on offer, including STEM subjects such as Maths, Chemistry, Biology and Physics.
Brooke Wilkie secured high grades in all subjects, including Grade 9 in Biology, Chemistry and PE as well as Grade 8 in Maths and Physics, and will be returning to Astley’s Sixth Form to study Chemistry, Maths, Further Maths and French.
Eleanor Gray achieved Grade 9-9 in Combined Science, Grade 9 in History and Grade 8 in English, Maths and PE, and has secured an apprenticeship.
Head of School Graham Scott said "I am delighted with yet another successful set of GCSE results for Astley. Once again, our students have shown that with the support of their parents/carers and our dedicated staff, they can achieve great things. There have been some fantastic achievements across a range of students and subjects, which reinforces our ethos that whoever you are and whatever your ability, if you believe you can do it and work hard you will get the rewards. Well done to everyone, I am really looking forward to a very strong sixth form, where you will all go from strength to strength."
Executive Headteacher John Barnes said: “Once again I am very proud of the students who have achieved these results, which are due to the hard work and efforts of students and staff. I have no doubt that these results are only the start of success for these young people and I am pleased that so many have chosen to continue their education in our Sixth Form. I congratulate them on all they have achieved over the last three years and I would like to say well done to everyone associated with Astley Community High School.”
