Year 11 students at the Royal Grammar School, Newcastle, are celebrating a successful year of GCSE results with students performing well at all levels and 25 individuals being awarded Grade 9s across the board.
As well as producing an impressive set of results, the cohort has been praised for the mature way they have approached these last two years, in particular, the way they have learnt how to work independently in what has been a challenging time for all.
“We are delighted by the GCSE grades our students have achieved,” said Geoffrey Stanford, Headmaster. “Each student has worked exceptionally hard, whether remotely or in school, and shown great resilience in the face of significant disruption. The students’ own reflections in their reports clearly demonstrate that they have developed excellent independent learning skills that will set them up well for the challenges of studying in the Sixth Form. That being said, we are very much looking forward to the return of normality for our students, including those whom we will be welcoming new to the school. All deserve to enjoy the full benefits of being able to learn at the RGS, including an exceptional co-curricular programme and the use of our impressive new Sixth Form Centre.”
