The school recorded another wonderful set of GCSE results including 91% of students gaining the equivalent of 5 or more ‘good passes’ at GCSE.
Pupils from the school also secured an impressive 27% of all passes at 9-7 (A*/A) grade or equivalent, significantly higher than the national average of 20.8%
The school also secured excellent overall results in subjects such as Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Music, History and RS which saw 100% of pupils achieving the equivalent of a grade 4 or above.
Pupils are celebrating having secured places at some of the county’s leading sixth form providers.
Amanda Kirby, Headmistress at Cundall Manor School, said: “I would like to pass on my congratulations to our Year 11 students for their wonderful achievements. Every year we see how hard our pupils have worked and their commitment to achieving their very best.”
“All our pupils should be very proud of their results and should know that their preparation for life after school has been of the highest standard.”
She added: “This is a great set of GCSE results for our pupils and the school, despite the new tougher exams. Our pupils can now leave us very well equipped for their future destinations as well-rounded individuals with an enviable set of exam results to take them forward. All of us at Cundall wish them the very best of luck with their studies.”
Among the school pupils celebrating their results was twins, Phoebe and Archie Frank. Phoebe, who is the Head Girl at Cundall Manor, achieved the equivalent of 11 GCSEs at grades 9-7. Phoebe, from Yarm, will now be turning her attention to her A-Levels at St Peter’s, York, starting this September.
Talking of receiving her results, Phoebe said: “I was really excited about opening the envelope. After a long summer of waiting, it has all been worth it!”
Adding: “All the Cundall staff have been great. I can’t thank them enough for all the help and support they gave us! They are fab.”
Looking at becoming a Corporate Solicitor, Phoebe will study English Literature and History at A-level French and an EPQ with a view to going to university after Sixth Form.
Brother, Archie also performed well and is looking to continue his education at Durham, after which he hopes to pursue a career in Engineering. He said: “I was rather nervous when I opened my results but I am delighted with how they turned out.”
Another pupil celebrating his GCSEs was Ben Throup. Young farmer, Ben, will start at Pocklington in September after which he aims to continue his studies in Agriculture at Newcastle University.
