Conyers School students produced an impressive set of GCSE results, with improved performances across all measures. 77% achieved 5*-C GCSE including English and Maths, representing a 7% annual increase in students’ best performance.
A fantastic set of A-Level results. 53% of all grades were A*/B which is a further increase on previous years. The overall pass rate was 99.2% with a tenth of the Year Group achieving 3 or more ‘A’ grades.

During Activities Week, some of our art students created stunning glass poppies, which were used in Yarm's Service of Remembrance on 4 August, to mark 100 years since the start of World War 1. During the candle light vigil the glass poppies came out of the crowd and were placed on the war memorial.
The Science department is busy preparing for six new laboratories to be installed over the summer holidays. After much deliberation they have chosen a very modern grey design. All of the designs have been checked and modified to ensure the Science department has state of the art modern lab facilities for students and staff.
