A-level results joy for Lady Lumley’s School pupils
THERE were plenty of happy faces at Lady Lumley’s School in Pickering as students celebrated a 100 percent pass rate when A level results were announced.
Deputy head Stuart Clearly said staff were delighted to see the vast majority of their students rewarded for their hard work with the university places they had hoped for.
Among the high achievers were this year’s head boy Cameron Spittall, who came away with one A*, two As and a B to get his place studying Law at Sheffield, and head girl Ellen Dixon who was thrilled with two A*s and one A grade and will soon reading English at Newscastle University, where she will be joined by deputy head boy Thomas Mitchell who got one A*, two As and a B, and will study History.
Head teacher Richard Bramley also congratulated student Lauren Deighton on her A* and three A grades, meaning she can read Biochemistry at Warwick University; Holly Duddell who got four A grades to take her to a Geography degree at Birmingham University; and Callum Shannon whose two As and B have got him a place studying Politics, Philosophy and Economics at York University.
Abigail Duffy and Oliver McNally both came away with three excellent A level grades - one A8, and A and a B; and one A* and two Bs respectively, and will go on to study Geography and Computer Science.
Mr Bramley said: “Today has gone really well, and it feels like the students are all very pleased.
“Our AS results have been the best ever, and the A2 results have held. This year’s Y13 have been a really nice year group, and they deserve their successes.”
Results in the school’s Travel and Tourism classes have been “absolutely stonking”, Mr Bramley added, and students in Psychology, Food Technology and ICT courses all came out in the top 25 percent nationally.
Mr Clearly added: “Once again the staff have done the business and the students have worked hard, and got what the results they deserved.
“If you work hard, 99 percent of the time you get what you deserve.”
Student Maddison Barnes, from Pickering, is looking forward to heading off to Edge Hill University in Liverpool to study Psychology after getting three C grades in English Literature and Language, Psychology and Sociology.
She said: “All of my friends have done fantastically. it’s been a nerve wracking morning. I was up at 6am and finally got on to the UCAS website at 7am, and found out I had got the place. My friends have all been texting each other saying they’ve got their university places.”
