August 2023 – Results…

Another year of outstanding results…

Students and staff at Durham Sixth Form Centre are celebrating success today following the publication of Level 3 results, marking yet another year of outstanding academic and personal achievements.

In our A Level and other academic qualifications we achieved a 100% pass rate and an average Grade B, with two thirds of the grades awarded being impressive A*-B grades. 

We enjoyed similarly outstanding success in vocational subjects with almost 90% of the grades awarded being the very highest Distinction*-Distinction grades.

We are pleased to have maintained our track record of excellent results especially given that the DfE announced a return to pre-pandemic standards this year. 

Ellen Beveridge, Headteacher, commented:

“I am extremely proud of the hard work, commitment and resilience shown by our students which has supported them in achieving such outstanding results. Their success is very well deserved and cannot be underestimated given the disruption they faced from the pandemic at the latter stages of their secondary education. These results will allow them to progress on to the next stage of their education and we wish them all every success.”
