Laura Bailey, one of our year 12 students performed live on Minster FM this morning.
Headteacher Dave Hewitt said “It has been a fantastic morning at Joseph Rowntree School with students being delighted with their GCSE and BTEC results. There are lots of individual success stories and we are looking forward to welcoming many of our students into our Sixth Form to continue their studies with us. Nineteen of our students got six or more GCSEs at grade 7 or higher, over 10% achieved grades 7-9 in English and Maths and 71% of all grades are at grade 4 or above.
Mr Hewitt, Headteacher at Joseph Rowntree School commented on the excellent A level results achieved by students in the Sixth Form. “We are all absolutely thrilled with the outcomes of students in the class of 2019.
On Monday April 29th (the training day after the Easter holidays) we will be holding some intensive Y11 revision sessions.
Our team came 3rd out of 23 schools in the UK Mathematics Trust regional team finals on the 20th March. So proud of our year 8 and 9 students Scott Codrai, Kian Kennedy, Abi Lowson and Aruma Wormald!
On March 12th we attended the Yorkshire Regional Final Panathlon Challenge. It was a fantastic day held at Fulford School. Our school showed amazing team spirit and encouragement towards other members of the Joseph Rowntree team and to other schools when taking part in their events. Even though our team was short of numbers it meant that the students needed to compete in multiple games at the same time or even compete in games that they would not normally play. Our students were fantastic, they were very understanding, and their moral and team spirit was still at a high.
A Textiles GCSE class went on a fantastic trip to London for the day. We started off at the prestigious head office of WGSN, a global trend prediction company who predict all future fashion trends two years in advance!
I took our Panathlon team to the Northern Regional Panathlon finals on Thursday 18th October at Fulford School. We were again up against our fiercest rivals Calderdale, who were representing West Yorkshire. Unfortunately they beat us again but victory was not quite as dominant as in previous years. We ran them close and were only beaten by 4 points with a fantastic total score of 52.
We are delighted with the outcomes for students of all abilities for students at The Joseph Rowntree School in their GCSEs.
