Youngsters at Cramlington Learning Village are celebrating success in their A level results, that saw an increase in nearly every category.

A total of 25.9 per cent of students achieved an A*-A which was up five per cent on last year, and 50.2 per cent achieved A-B grades which was up four per cent.

A record breaking 15 students achieved all A* or A grades in their exams, and seven have been close friends since they started at the school when they were 13.

Friends Kate Sheffer and Lauren Carroll achieved a clean sweep with A* in Maths, Chemistry and Biology and A* in their Extended Project.

Both students are off to Cambridge to study Natural Sciences.

Ross Hindson achieved three A*s and an A, Paul Prince gained two A*s and two As, and hopes to go on to study Maths at university, and Karl McLean gained one A* and 3 As.

Chris Thompson gained two A*s and an A and Megan Whitfield achieved on A* and three As, and both are preparing to study Medicine.

Last year’s head boy Luke Lindsay achieved three As and is off to Loughbrough University, and Jessica Murray gained one A* and two As and is off to Leeds University to study English Literature.

Headteacher Wendy Heslop said: “I am absolutely delighted with the results this year; these are the best results the school has experienced in recent years and are testimony to the hard work of staff and students.

“This has been an incredible year for the school with being awarded Teaching School Status, our fourth ‘outstanding’ for OFSTED and now record results at post sixteen.”
