Celebrating the strongest set of GCSE results in the School’s history

Yarm School is delighted to be celebrating the strongest set of GCSE results in the School’s history. More than half (56%) of all grades awarded to Yarm School pupils are 9/8 and a third of all exams achieved the top 9 grade.

23 pupils achieved the impressive feat of securing 10 or more 9/8 grades, with seven pupils achieving the phenomenal feat of 11 out of 11 grade 9s: Miriam Akowuah, Sara Banerjee, Kayla Roberts, Keya Shah, Ammar Soni, Hannah Stewart and Harry Wildridge.

The stellar seven have a plethora of other achievements between them, including success in the UKMT Senior Maths Challenge, playing at national school finals for netball and hockey, rowing for the School, playing in the School’s orchestra and completing their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh awards. Academic and extracurricular success run in parallel at Yarm and encapsulate the School’s ethos ‘Educating for Life’.

Results across the board were exceptional and in 16 subjects more than a third of all grades achieved were grade 9. In the School’s first year of offering Computer Science the results were outstanding with 70% grades at 9/8. English and Maths also followed this impressive trend with 65% and 58% respectively securing a grade 9/8 in these core subjects.

Dr Huw Williams, Headmaster at Yarm: “2022 has been a vintage year for pupils’ results at Yarm with these strongest ever GCSE results following on from last week’s record outcomes in public examinations for our departing Upper Sixth.

These outstanding results reflect the determination, perseverance and ambition of our pupils and we are so proud of them all. Furthermore, they are also a strong affirmation of the quality of teaching and support given to pupils at Yarm in their academic subjects but also the pastoral care and support they received from their teachers. On the back of excellent remote learning provision the pupils have fully embraced the unique opportunities available at Yarm.

Within these impressive results are a range of individual success stories that reflect personal endeavour and pupils exceeding their own expectations and aspirations. We celebrate the success of this terrific year group who have contributed a huge amount to the wider life of the school.”
