Welcome to the 2019-2020 academic year
Updated: Sep 3, 2019
We are delighted to be able to share with you some of the fabulous results our students achieved at both A level and GCSE in the summer.
We are incredibly proud of Oonagh Stewart who is heading to Oxford University to study medicine after achieving a phenomenal set of A level results: A* in Maths and Biology, plus A in Chemistry and Physics. Oonagh has an incredible work ethic and fully deserved such high grades. We wish her all the very best in her future studies and know that she has exactly the right attitude and manner to be a brilliant doctor.
Huge congratulations also go to Toby Shi, who joined us at Monkseaton in Year 10 from China and had to work extra hard to overcome the language barrier. Catching Toby revising at a computer became a regular occurrence for staff, along with his requests to have the extra work he had completed at home marked. Toby's commitment, determination and resilience were second to none and his results mirrored this: 99 in Science, 9s in Maths and Chinese, Distinction in Engineering, 7s in Business Studies and Geography, B in CIDA, 6 in English Language and 5 in English Literature. This would be an excellent set of results for any student, but to achieve them after having minimal knowledge of the English language 18 months earlier is truly exceptional.
Further successes in Year 11 include:
Cara Smith: 99 in Science, 9 in Maths, 8 in History, 7s in Art, Business Studies and English Language
Guillaume Barrioz: D* in Engineering, 8 in Maths, 87 in Science, 7s in Business Studies and French
Felix Carr: 99 in Science, 9 in History, 8s in English Language, French and Maths
Lewis De Silva: 9 in English Literature, D* in Engineering, 98 in Science, 8s in Maths, French and History, 7s in English Language and Business Studies
Jenny Styles: 99 in Science, 8s in Maths and English Language, 7s in History, Photography and Spanish
Barry Bromilow: 9 in History, D* in Engineering, 8 in English Literature, A in CIDA and 7 in Business Studies
Libby Harding: 88 in Science, 8 in Spanish, 7s in English Language, English Literature, Maths and History
Nasim Hannan and Nabeel Ahmed also deserve a special mention. As gifted mathematicians, they were given the opportunity to sit GCSE Further Maths at the end of Year 10, gaining an A* and B grade respectively. We hope that this encourages them both to continue working hard throughout Year 11 so they can add more exceptional results to their tally.
