Mr Hewitt, Headteacher at Joseph Rowntree School commented on the excellent results at GCSE achieved by the Year 11 students of 2020. “It has been a fantastic morning at Joseph Rowntree School celebrating the achievements of our students in their GCSE’s and BTECs. We are incredibly proud, not only of the resilience that they have demonstrated throughout the uncertainties of the last few months, but for all the hard work and dedication that they have demonstrated over five years of study that culminate in these excellent results. Students have worked hard for these qualifications and they have benefitted from the support and excellent teaching of a quality staff. They should be delighted with all they have achieved here and we wish them all the best for the next steps in their education and careers.”

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.
