The waiting is over for Boroughbridge High School students, who have received their AS and A2 exam results.
In yet another year when the press is full of warnings of disappointment over poor results due to changes in assessment and grade allocations, students at Boroughbridge High School had very good reasons to celebrate.
Students’ results reflect the hard work and commitment they have shown over the past two years with a pass rate just over 90 per cent at A Level and 100 per cent in Vocational courses with 50 per cent of those being at Distinction and 50 per cent at Merit.
16 per cent of students achieved 3+ Advanced Level results with all top grades.
The school’s Headteacher, Elaine Dixon said: “Congratulations to all our students who thoroughly deserve their successes.
“In addition to achieving good results they are a super group of young people and they have all made such a contribution to the life of the school and they will be greatly missed.
“I wish them every happiness as they move on to their chosen University courses and careers.”
Amongst so many good sets of results the following students’ achievements were particularly notable: Mark Chester - BBB ; Kate Eden – AAB; Rachel Gilby – AABC; Nathan Jordan – ABBC; Rebecca Longbottom – ABB; Eilidh MacGillivray – Dist*AB; Rose Priestley – ABB; Sarah Waymouth – A*AB.
