Howden celebrate success
Year 11 students are celebrating their success after picking up their results this morning. Headteacher Mr Cannon said 'Today we are delighted to be celebrating with our students as they have received their results and chosen their next steps. It has been a pleasure for staff to again share in so many individual successes and the realisation of personal ambitions and goals. This of course comes after many months and indeed years of effort and commitment by both students and staff, supported of course by their families. I congratulate all on their hard work and resilience and positivity in navigating the demands of these qualifications.
Results day is always about the young people and about them being able to move on to chosen destinations. Many have now decided to move on Selby College, York College, Bishop Burton, Wyke College and other Post 16 Providers for their next ventures. Others are celebrating as they prepare to begin coveted apprenticeships with companies. We wish each and every one of them success and happiness as they move forward and we look forward to hearing their successes in the years to come.'
Amongst the many individual successes were: Annie Giles who is studying Law, Criminology and Biology at Wyke College said “I am so happy, I don’t know what to say.' Izzy Leighton who is going onto York College to study Chemistry, Biology and Maths said, “I am happily pleased, in truth I am just in shock”. Tom Bentley who is also going to York said “I cannot believe it, my grades have far exceeded my expectations and I am delighted to be following the A-levels of my choice”.
Harry Hartas who is going to Selby College to follow his vocation of Health and Social Care, “I am very happy with my grades, I have done better than I thought I was ever going to do, my dreams have come true and I am delighted to get on the Level 2 qualification”.
