The school, which last week said it was disappointed with some of the A Level results rewarded by the Government's algorithm, has welcomed the move to now award all GCSE and A Level results from centre assessed grades.

Year 11 pupils received their results over email this morning, Thursday.

Students at Harrogate Grammar School received their GCSE results today, Thursday.

Neil Renton, Headteacher, said: “We are very pleased with the outcomes our students have achieved this year.

"The outcomes reflect the high standards that we typically achieve along with our continued emphasis on providing a broad and balanced curriculum, meeting the differing needs, aspirations and interests of our learners.

"We are very proud of our Year 11 students who embraced all the opportunities that the school offered them, not only in a broad curriculum in areas such as science, maths, languages, humanities and the arts, but also the wide range of extra-curricular activities such as sport, music and charities. We admire them for their commitment, sustained effort and for achieving their own excellence.

"We would like to stress that we recognise the exceptional hard work of all our students, the support of their families and the dedication of all of our teachers and support staff over the duration of their schooling. This is a cohort of young people who have had an experience in their final year of school like no other.

"It is important that we celebrate the success of our students and take great pride in their achievements over many years.

"The vast majority of Year 11 have chosen to progress to the Sixth Form at Harrogate Grammar School and we wish all students every success in their future endeavours.”
