GREENFIELD SCHOOL COMMUNITY & ARTS COLLEGE
RECORD RESULTS AT GREENFIELD
Once again, Greenfield School has broken its own records with this year’s GCSE results. At 65%, the number of pupils gaining 5+ A*-C grades was an all-time school record, and (at 44%), the percentage of pupils gaining 5+ A*-C (including English and Maths) was 10% up on last year. All the pupils left with at least one GCSE qualification and only one pupil left with fewer than 5 GCSEs. The number of pupils gaining 3 or more A*-A grades was also a school record 24%.
Some individual pupils performed remarkably well. Jim Ward, school Progress & Guidance leader, was keeping names firmly under his hat for the GCSE Prize-giving evening, but he did reveal that one pupil had gained 11 subjects at A* or A, and that two pupils had an average grade of A or better. ‘The GCSE Presentation evening on Thursday 12 November is going be a time of great celebration this year’, he enthused.
David Priestley, the school’s Headteacher, paid tribute to the good results of Greenfield’s partner schools. ‘With both Woodham and Sunnydale also gaining record results this year’, said Mr Priestley, ‘Aycliffe people can be satisfied that all three schools in the new ASSET Trust are achieving academic excellence.’
Chris Stonehouse, Greenfield’s Deputy Headteacher, is delighted to be moving closer to our long-term target of 70%’. She said. ‘We want our Greenfield students to go into the world with an education and qualifications as good as any school anywhere in the country, and we are determined to achieve it.’
