Our Results 2019

Our students have achieved outstanding examination results, reinforcing Yarm School’s reputation as one of the leading academic schools in the North East.

A-levels and GCSEs are now examined under the reformed, more rigorous, linear qualifications. However, we celebrated some of our best results to date.

A-level results

We achieved our best A-level results for several years which placed us as the top performing school in Teesside and County Durham. 55% of all grades were awarded at A*/A, surpassing our five year average and more than doubling the national average of 25.5%. Our A* rate (23%) was also more than three times higher than that of the North East as a whole (6.7%).

Our students gained places at a wide range of prestigious university destinations including six who leave us for Oxford or Cambridge, with courses ranging from Chemistry to Architecture and, for the fifth year in succession, German. Successful candidates include Thomas Barber, Susannah Dunn, Sarah Portsmouth, Hazel Wake and Thomas Wasson.

Seventeen students also go on to study Medicine, Dentistry or Veterinary Medicine and many others will be studying a remarkable breadth of subjects including Engineering, Performing Arts, Classics, Agriculture, Computer Science and Management, many at Russell Group Universities.

GCSE examination results

64% of our GCSE grades were 9-7 which is significantly higher than the national average of 20.8%. Additionally, 22% of our grades were grade 9, beating the national average of 4.5%.

Seventeen pupils received of ten or more results at grades 9/8, twelve of whom secured a fantastic eight or more results at grade 9: Sirjan Gill, Pranav Kambalimath, Anish Krishnan, Lily Brown, Juju Mon, Kaushiki Dasgupta, Arun Thakur, Grace Burridge, Niamh Masterson, Eilis Fitzgerald, Thomas Hall, Dania Khunda, Isabelle Leader, Natalie Limaye, Sanjana Manvikar, Siddharth Murali and Charlotte Paylor.

Examination results were strong in subjects across the board with 47% of pupils securing a grade 9/8 in Mathematics and one quarter of the year group sitting the demanding Further Mathematics qualification. A startling 76% of these achieved either an A* or the outstanding A* distinction. In German, 58% of pupils achieved grades 9/8, demonstrating our continued success in languages. Results in creative subjects continued the trend; 57 pupils took one of our Design Technology courses with a remarkable 56% awarded grades 9/8.
