In the past week or so, pupils throughout the UK have been
receiving their GCSE results and Harton School is particularly pleased
with its results this year - the best ever, according to Ian Tunnicliffe..
Over 56% of pupils left the school with 5 or more GCSEs
at grades A* to C, with one girl leaving with 17 GCEs at grade C or better
and one girl in year 7 gaining a grade A in German! But for a change,
it's not the girls who dominate the results - 6 out of 8 of the top results
were achieved by boys.
Councillor Scott Duffy, one of the school's governors said:
The School is really proud of this year's leavers - their results are
a testimony to their hard work and effort. I would personally like to
thank all those who have helped Harton achieve its best ever exam results
- the pupils, teachers, classroom assistants and learning mentors. Harton
has a dedicated team that is committed to getting the very best for
each and every child in the school.
