Durham Sixth Form Centre

Headteachers' Update

August 2020 - Results...

I am delighted to report that students at Durham Sixth Form Centre are celebrating success today following the publication of A-Level results, marking yet another year of excellent academic and personal achievements. This includes a 100% A-Level pass rate, with the average A-level grade of a grade B- and almost 60% of A Level entries being awarded a grade A*-B.  

Vocational results very strong, too, with over 97% of students achieving Distinction* or Distinction grades.

This has been a very strange year for us all, however, it is important at this time of uncertainty that we do not allow the wider situation to overshadow the exceptional successes of our students at the end of their two year courses. I am incredibly proud of our Year 13 students, and the resilience that they have shown throughout this period. Whilst I am disappointed that their time at Durham Sixth Form Centre was cut short, on behalf of staff and governors, I wish them every success and happiness for their futures. These successes have enabled students to take up their places at university, including some of the top universities; on prestigious school leaver programmes; or on higher-level apprenticeships.
