Durham High School’s Acting Principal, Michelle Hill, is very proud of the wonderful GCSE results which highlight the resilience and tremendous determination of our year 11 pupils. Mrs Hill said, “I would like to firstly congratulate all our pupils and staff for their efforts and the strength they have shown during recent years. These results will allow our girls to look forward with confidence to the next stage of their studies at Durham High School Sixth Form.’
Durham High School pupils have once again secured GCSE results of the highest level, with a third of all grades at level 8 and 9. The year 11 have shown what a varied group they are with 100% Latin, Greek, Biology, Chemistry, French, Religious Studies and Chinese entries all achieving grades 9-6 and two thirds of Art & Design and PE pupils achieved grades 9-8. They also proved to be just as successful in the core subjects, with 100% pass rate for Maths and English, and 70% of all science grades, including Trilogy, at level 9-7.
