Brilliant and Best Ever Sixth form results at Norton College!
Students and staff celebrated a brilliant set of Sixth Form results at Norton College. Results in all types of qualification were the best ever recorded at the College.
Dr Simon Carson, deputy head in charge of Sixth Form, said, “These are our best results yet, with even better grades at both A level and in applied courses. Over 75% of all grades recorded were either A*, A or B or equivalents. This is a remarkable achievement.”
Gemma McDonald, Head of Sixth added, "I am really proud of all the hard work and effort that the students have put into achieving these sensational results. It is so exciting to see our students going on to great careers, apprenticeships and university courses in ever greater numbers."
Phil Loftus, Headteacher commented, “These results firmly establish Norton College as a very successful and local sixth form provider for Ryedale and the Coast. Our recipe for success is now proven and students thrive because of the care offered and the quality of teaching. I could not be more proud of what staff and students have achieved.”
While some students are already working away from the area in fields such as motor journalism, others have secured prestigious employment locally with North Yorkshire Police or with local business in Sales and Logistics. Approximately 70% of the year group have been offered University places. Courses range from Art, Biochemistry, Medicine, Primary school teaching, Fashion and Promotion to International Horseracing at Hartpury.
The College is known for being really clear about its mission - to give all students the opportunity to acquire the skills, qualities and qualifications to secure a place at University or start a career of their choice and for the Class of 2017, it is mission accomplished!
