The GCSE and A Level results of last year’s Y11 and 13 student set a host of new records for Emmanuel. Students have now learned that their hard work has earned them the top spot in the North East for:
- the benchmark five GCSEs at A*-C grade including English and mathematics, with 91 per cent of students achieving the target, a figure that puts the college in 16th position nationally;
- the English Baccalaureate (Ebacc) with 63 per cent of students gaining the required C grade or higher across English, mathematics, a science, a foreign language and a humanities subject. The next best state school stands at 52 per cent, and Emmanuel’s achievement puts it 21st nationally;
- progress in mathematics, a key government target, achieved by 95 per cent of the yeargroup, placing them first in the North East and 19th across England.
Jonathan Winch congratulated students on their achievement, adding: “At Emmanuel we put character first, knowing that achievement will follow. It’s a privilege to work with young people who give so much back. They richly deserve these fabulous results.”
The college also has one of the highest percentages among state schools in the region for students achieving at least two As and a B in so-called ‘facilitating subjects’ at A level, and a record eight students won places at Oxbridge.
