At The Market Weighton School we are celebrating another set of improved exam results with greater percentages of students achieving above grades 4 and 5 in English, maths and science with 70% of students gaining at least a grade 4 in both English and maths, (equivalent to the old C grade). This represents the school’s best figure for this measure in recent years.
We have some notable individual success with Tina McCreedy and Mia Cosquer both achieving a grade 9 in Art and Harvey Garthwaite who achieved 4 grade 9s in Biology, Computer Science, English Language and maths together with an A* grade in further maths. Other students who achieved grade 9s were; Jacob Smith in Food Technology, Adam Humble in Geography and Tom Hollands in English Literature. Nicole Hobson achieved the top grade of a Distinction * in her Btec Creative Media.
Student progress is measured based on their KS2 SAT results and based on this measure Jess Mellor achieved a massive 3 grades higher on average across all her subjects. This is a massive achievement along with Matthew Haxby, Emma Calam, Harvey Garthwaite, Oliver Earnshaw, Ellis Brown and Katie Hughes who all achieved over 1 grade higher across all subjects.
There were many other individual successes in each subject and we wish all our students well as the progress to the next stage of their education or training.
I would also like to thank all the staff who have worked tirelessly to support our students achieve the best possible grades.
Mr R Harrison – Head Teacher
