Once again this year, students at Sedgefield Community College have been celebrating yet more exceptional GCSE success. The school, which is recognised by OFSTED as ‘Outstanding’ in all respects, is no stranger to success of this magnitude having been one of the North East and Cumbria’s highest performing secondary schools for a number of years. However, the challenge to maintain this standard has clearly not prevented students at the college from performing as this year they have not only matched the performance of previous years but actually surpassed it and broken all previous records!
As happy students and parents opened envelopes to reveal their results Headteacher Dave Davies remarked, ‘It’s so rewarding to see so many happy faces in school this morning. It’s always so pleasing for everyone concerned to see so many students overcome with joy as they see the results of years of hard work. It is something that I personally never tire of despite the consistently high performance at Sedgefield over the years. I would like to congratulate our students and their parents on what is another record breaking set of results. I am absolutely delighted for them. Also, I would like to congratulate our truly fantastic staff team who have also worked tirelessly to ensure that all students achieve their potential. The school is fortunate to have such a group of dedicated and supremely talented staff. Well done everyone!
Chair of Governors, John Robinson added, ‘on behalf of the staff, governors and myself, I would like to congratulate our former students and wish them well for their life after Sedgefield Community College. I must also take the opportunity to thank Mr Davies and his staff for ensuring that the children in our community benefit from a standard of education which will not be bettered anywhere in the region’.
