'Learn, Achieve, Succeed'

Headteacher's Update

Awarded No.1 for Outcomes in the North East of England

A big welcome to all of our new students, parents, families and colleagues and students returning into year 13 and 14.  What a wonderful start to a new term.  Lots of new faces, energy and enthusiasm coupled with some bright blue skies in early September.

In August 2015, our students at Durham Sixth Form Centre achieved excellent exam success.  Over half of our A level entries achieved grades A*-B and our Average Point Score per student was above both National and Local Authority averages.  Furthermore, our vocational courses also had tremendous success, two thirds of entries were at Distinction* level, again, well above National and Local averages.

We are also delighted that once again well over ¾ of our year 13 students not only progressed into higher education and university but well over ¾ of them also achieved their first choice.

Students who decided to go onto apprenticeships have done so with equal success. This is a tremendous accomplishment and achievement by all of our students and staff.  Well done, all of the hard work and effort was worth it.

From such a fantastic start and  after over 100 years in education we are now looking forward to beginning our journey into the next 100 years and the new academic year which I am delighted to say will also bring with it lots of new and exciting opportunities and challenges for our students.

I look forward to reporting further on our achievements throughout the year.
