Students at Rossett School in Harrogate are celebrating after receiving their A Levels.
The overall pass rate for the school was 98 per cent, with 17 per cent A* and A grades (an increase on last year), and 37 per cent A*-B.
Headteacher Pat Hunter said: This year’s Year 13 have worked incredibly hard for these results and they thoroughly deserve this success.
We knew in advance that government policy meant all exam papers would be marked more harshly than in previous years, so we weren’t sure what to expect. However, we are thrilled that our students have overcome this difficulty to earn some truly outstanding results.
It is also a reflection of the help and support they have had from their families and the staff at Rossett School. We couldn’t be happier for them and look forward to hearing more success stories from them as they move on to the next stage of their lives.
As well as strong overall results for the school, some individual students achieved particularly impressive grades.
Hannah Davy, Sofia Hain, Ellie Higgins, Christopher Cullingworth got all As and A*s.
Eleanor Morrow, Benjamin Parker, Daniel Stenson, Jenny McLoughlin, Luke Annett, Tyler Megson, Christine Clark, Olivia Arion, Ross Harrison and Ashley Thompson all achieved two As and a B.
Triplets Ross, James and Natasha Harrison gained nine A levels between them and all exceeded their target grades. Having gone through most of their experiences together – even hitting national headlines last year when they all passed their driving tests on the same day – they will now follow very different paths from September.
Ross will study mechanical engineering at Newcastle and James takes up a place studying French and business management at Sheffield, while Natasha is taking a gap year to work and travel.
