Our students have achieved outstanding results, reinforcing Yarm School’s reputation as one of the leading academic schools in the North East.
As well as enabling strong academic results, Yarm School’s ethos of ‘Educating for Life’ prepares our students for the diverse challenges of life beyond school. Our students leave school with the skills, personal qualities and drive that will set them up to succeed in adult life. We are extremely proud of this cohort of students who have, through no fault of their own, had this most important stage of their school lives compromised by Covid-19. In the face of such uncertainty, they have shown admirable resilience and determination.
Yarm School are delighted to report that 32% of A Level results were graded A*. Furthermore, 63% of all A Level grades achieved the top-level A*/A results, with 83% graded at A*-B.
Our students gained places to study a range of diverse courses at a wide range of prestigious university destinations, including highly competitive courses such as medicine, as well as pursuing a range of other opportunities including degree apprenticeships, performing arts courses and moving directly into employment.
43 students achieved 3 or more A*/A grades with 16 students achieving 3 or more A* grades. 20 of the year group went on to study medicine or dentistry.
Medicine was the most popular course of choice by our 2020 leavers but 6% of our students have gained places on a Mathematics-related course at a range of prestigious universities which include Oxford, Durham and LSE. Psychology, Law and Economics were also popular choices this year. The diverse range of courses that our students have been accepted onto include: Fashion Marketing at Leeds, Anthropology at Durham, Criminology at Queen’s Belfast, Diagnostic Radiotherapy at Liverpool, Liberal Arts at Durham and Real Estate at Northumbria. Our students have also gained places to study Art Foundation and Acting and Theatre Studies. As well as university destinations, our students are embarking on a range of other career options including pilot training, prestigious Degree Apprenticeships with firms such as PWC and entering the RAF.
Yarm School pupils are celebrating an outstanding set of GCSE results which are consistent with the School’s high academic standards. Almost half of all grades (49%) awarded achieved a 9 or 8 (A*), with 71% of grades awarded at 7, 8 or 9 (equivalent to former A* and A grades).
Seven pupils achieved an impressive feat of a full house of grade 9s: Noah Bickenson, Hasmeet Gill, Patricia Jude, Shilpi Nanda, Abhinav Ramisetty, Charlotte Rutter and Ananya Singh were all awarded 11 out of 11 grade 9s.
Results were strong in subjects across the board with 48% of pupils securing a grade 9/8 in Mathematics and, of those who studied the demanding Further Mathematics course, a startling 83% achieved grade 9/8. Languages and Sciences continued their strong results trend with 79% of pupils achieving grades 9/8 in German and all pupils studying Latin were awarded with a 9/8. In Biology, Chemistry and Physics over 50% of grades were awarded a 9/8. Similarly impressive results were seen in many subjects including Geography, PE, Music, DT and Art.
