“It has been a fantastic morning at Joseph Rowntree School celebrating the achievements of our students in their GCSEs,” he said.
“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.”
