Exam Results Success
King Ecgbert School and Newfield School are celebrating a fantastic set of results for both A Level and GCSE students.
After the substantial challenges of COVID in schools and the potential impact on students and families, we are extremely pleased that results are very strong in Newfield School and King Ecgbert School.

Ms McCairns, Director of Sixth Form, said:
We are proud of every single student as they embark on their bright exciting new futures.
Considering the turmoil that our young adults have experienced, it is testament to the experience and dedication of our staff that we celebrate:
71% of our students achieving A*s - Bs
55% of our BTEC students achieving Distinction *'s or distinctions
45% of grades were straight A*s / A's or Distinction* / Distinction
While these tell a great headline story, it is the individual success stories we are most proud of, with students getting into their first choice universities and apprenticeships.
Paul Haigh, headteacher, said:
To see 80% of our students achieve 5 standard GCSE passes or more would be cause for great celebration any year but, considering what these students have had to contend with, it is particularly inspiring and heart-warming this year.
It shows not just the high academic standards King Ecgbert students are taught to but also how well developed their character is to be able to determinedly achieve to this standard and not be knocked back by the constant disruptions caused by the pandemic.
Emma Anderson, headteacher, said:
We're absolutely delighted with our results this year, especially as this is a year group that have triumphed under some real adversity. But it's just so pleasing to see that our youngsters have got the grades they needed to go on to those next steps.
We've got a number of students who have achieved those top grades and we haven't see that national trend that's been quoted in the media today of a deflation in grades.
