    Thirsk School students celebrate fantastic GCSE results

    Students from Thirsk School and Sixth Form College have achieved an extremely strong set of GCSE results. In a year of new, more challenging exams, 61% of students gained at least five passes including English and Maths. 17% of grades awarded were between a 7 and a 9 (the equivalent of the old A-A*) and the progress 8 score, which measures the progress students have made since leaving primary school, is positive. This means that students at the school have made stronger than expected progress during their time here.


    Within these results there are some incredible individual success stories.  Amongst these were Justine Lockwood, who gained seven of the new top grade 9, an 8 and two 7s, Amy Lawson who gained seven 9s, two 8s and a 7, Oona Webster Jones who gained five 9s, four 8s and a 7, Hannah Coles who gained five 9s, two 8s, three 7s, Adam Bentley who gained four 9s, three 8s, two 7s and a 6, and Jonathan Burrell who gained four 9s, three 8s and two 7s as well as a level two merit in ICT. These outstanding results set our students up well to enter our high achieving sixth form.  It is notable that across the school, many students of all abilities and interests achieved significantly above their targets in a wide variety of subjects. They should all be extremely proud of themselves.

    Emma Lambden, Headteacher, said ‘these results are a testament to the hard work and dedication of our students and staff. I am delighted by the strong progress that students have made during their time at Thirsk School and Sixth Form College.’
