September - Durham Sixth Form Centre Shortlisted for the Investors in People Awards 2019...
A big welcome to all of our new students, parents, families and colleagues and students returning into Year 13 and 14. What a wonderful start to a new term. Lots of new faces, energy and enthusiasm coupled with bright blue skies in early September.
In August 2019, our students at Durham Sixth Form Centre once again achieved excellent exam success. Over half of our A-level entries achieved grades A*-B and our Average Point Score per student was above both National and Local Authority averages. Furthermore, our vocational courses also had tremendous success, with 95% of entries at Distinction and Distinction* level, again, well above National and Local averages. Our students have done especially well given the changes to examination specifications over the last couple of years which have seen significant changes to the A-level qualification.
