KEVI students’ GCSE success

MORPETH GCSE students have continued to outdo national results, with more success at King Edward VI School.

There were happy faces galore this morning when pupils went to school to pick up their results, with every single one of them achieving at least one GCSE.

There were 29 students celebrating a run of all A* and A grades, while 89 percent achieved five or more A* to C grades and 70 percent attained five or more A* to C grades including English and maths.

Headteacher Simon Taylor said: “We are very happy with the results.

“I’m delighted that 100 percent of youngsters got a GCSE so everybody got something and nobody leaves us without a pass.

“It’s another great day after last week’s A-Level results.”
