Conyers School is once again celebrating huge success with its GCSE exam results. 80% of all grades were at grade 4 or above and over a quarter of all grades awarded were top grades.
A staggering 25 students achieved 8 or more 7/8/9/A/A* grades. This included Eve Hewett who achieved the phenomenal success of straight grade 8/9s in all 11 of her subjects. This success was even more impressive, as Eve’s string of top grades included two Modern Foreign Languages, with her GCSE French completed 2 years early and for which she achieved full marks!
Other outstanding individual success stories this year included Zainab Al-Amiri, Charlotte Evans, Mia Jones, Shona Stevenson and Ben Thomason who achieved 5 or more top grade 9s.
They were joined by Andrea Aucott, Joshua Bailey, Luke Ball, Amelia Balmer, Lauren Bell, Ellen Campbell, Nathan Campling, Megan Donovan, Harrison George, Daisy Mellis, Emily Rose, Abbie Rowntree, Joel Sharples, Benjamin Sibson, Katie Simpson, Grace Smith, Millie Taylor and Eden Tyerman, all of whom achieved 8 or more grades 7/8/9/A/A*.
Conyers student and Stockton South Youth MP, Tanisha Roy, achieved 6 top grades at 7/8/9 and will continue her Conyers’ journey at Conyers Sixth Form in September. Fellow student and talented footballer, Jonathan Krakue, who also achieved an impressive 10 GCSEs at grade 6/7, has secured himself a scholarship at Sunderland Football Club.
Conyers Head teacher Louise Spellman said “These wonderful results contain many stories of individual success and students achieving excellence.”
“We are delighted for the many students who have achieved their target grades and look forward to welcoming many back into Sixth Form in September. I would like to thank the staff who have shown dedication and who have worked tirelessly to ensure every student had the best chance of success. Parents also deserve thanks from our students for their patience and support.”
Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen, a former pupil at Conyers, returned to his former school to join the students receiving their GCSE results.
Ben was a student at Conyers between 1998 and 2005, when he left to read for a Law degree at Northumbria University.
Mayor Houchen said: “I’d like to give a massive congratulations to everyone
receiving their GCSE results today.”
“I also want to express my gratitude to the parents, teachers and other staff in our schools for their dedication and commitment in preparing and supporting students for these challenging exams.”
