2016 Year 11 GCSE Results - Another vintage year

Congratulations to all of our Year 11 students who completed examinations this year.

Heaton Manor School is celebrating a fantastic set of GCSE exam results. Once again the 5 A*-C EM has increased as has the % of A* and A grades. Students are celebrating some superb individual results and should rightly be very proud of their outstanding achievements. There were many happy and thrilled faces amongst our Year 11 students as they opened their results envelopes. Many congratulations to our Year 11 students this year for achieving this excellent set of GCSE results!

Head teacher, Lynne Ackland, commented, “These excellent results are a tribute to the incredible hard-work and dedication of the Students, Staff, Parents and Governing Body and testament to the school’s strength in delivering the highest standard of education. This follows on from last week’s strong A Level results and the news that record numbers of our students have obtained places at Cambridge, Oxford and other very highly regarded Universities. For us it is vitally important that we support all students to achieve their absolute best life chances. I am so proud of everyone for what they have achieved; they thoroughly deserve these strong results.”

Assistant Head teacher Nigel Holmes commented, “These are outstanding results which provide our students with ever greater opportunities for their future and place Heaton Manor School amongst the best performing state schools in Newcastle.  Staff, Parents, Governors and the local community, should rightly be proud of the achievements of the students at Heaton Manor School.

Heaton Manor School has totally bucked the National Trend. Whilst it has been reported that this year has seen the sharpest national decline in GCSE results, Heaton Manor has seen overall attainment and progress scores improve significantly. We are particularly proud of our English results where we have seen an almost 20% improvement in the progress made by our Year 11 students.

The staff and the Governing Body at Heaton Manor School remain incredibly proud of the many individual outstanding academic and personal achievements amongst our Year 11 students and once more our near 100% pass rate means that no student leaves Heaton Manor without a qualification or a progression route. This continues to reflect our ethos of ensuring success and the best life chances for all of our students whatever their starting point. In addition to this the outstanding amount of A/A* grades that our Year 11 students have achieved continues to reflect and cement Heaton Manor’s excellent academic success. 

We are delighted that Thea, Finlay, Freddie, Caitlin and Zenab have all chosen to continue their A’ Level studies with us at Heaton Manor Sixth Form.

We are also delighted of course that, like our students mentioned above, most of our Year 11 students have enrolled with us at Heaton Manor School Sixth Form to continue their academic studies. 

We would finally like to wish a final ‘Good Luck’ and ‘Goodbye’ to our Year 11 students who are not continuing their studies with us and are moving on to other post 16 colleges, employment or training.
