Teenagers across Ryedale have been celebrating their GCSE results this morning.
The pupils from Lady Lumley’s School, Norton College, Ryedale School and Malton School turned up from 9am to see if their hard work over the past two years had paid off.
And once again all schools scored well in the key indicator of the percentage of students earning five or more grades at A* to C, including English and Maths.
Students at Malton School smashed their previous record with 75 per cent earning five or more grades at A* to C, while the head teachers of Ryedale School (72 per cent), Lady Lumley’s (66 per cent) and Norton College (65 per cent) were also delighted with their results.
Rob Williams, head teacher of Malton School, said: “This is a fantastic set of results achieved by a very special year group. It is a tribute to them, their parents and families, and to the staff team who have given them excellent teaching and guidance.”
