Ponteland High School Headteacher, Stefan McElwee said;
“Despite the challenges and adversity faced by our Year 11 students over the past two years they have achieved fantastic GCSE results. They have experienced significant disruption to their studies yet have shown resilience and determination to achieve their best, despite the national challenges of the pandemic. All of our students should be extremely proud of themselves; they have shown a strength of character and work ethic to be proud of. I look forward to celebrating their results with them and I am extremely proud of their many achievements.
“We will now look forward to welcoming many of them back into our Sixth Form. I am confident they will benefit from a more stable period of education and they can look forward to further successes at A Level and beyond.”
