Dear Parents, Carers and Friends There was a really interesting interview with Amanda Spielman, the chief inspector of Ofsted on Radio 5 on Thursday morning. Ms Spielman spoke about too many schools, ‘teaching to the test’ and narrowing their curriculum in order that the students, and hence the school, achieved the right grades to make the...

Dear Parents, Carers and Friends Congratulations to the England football team who have made it through to the semi-finals of the World Cup for the first time since 1990.  It is fair to say that when we planned the calendar for 2017-18 this possibility was not at the forefront of our minds.  We are now in...

Dear Parents, Carers and Friends

On Thursday we were celebrating the excellent results achieved by our sixth form students.  Although A level examinations have become harder, our students put on their ‘A’ game and achieved 44 A and 13 A* grades with 18 of our 68 students achieving at least 2 A/A* grades.  These are our strongest A level results ever, with over 62% of entries at grade A*-B, and these results place Lady Lumley’s sixth form firmly in the top 25% of schools and colleges nationally.

There were some amazing individual results with both Alex Eddon and Meg Mansell achieving grades of  A*A*A.  Alex will go on to read Physics at Durham University and Meg History at the University of York.  Two of our students, Elisha De-Alker and Harriet Eastwood, achieved A*AA grades in their A levels and will move on to study medicine at the Hull York Medical School whilst Katie Henson, who also gained A*AA, will apply for medicine next year.  Maurice Calton-Seal achieved A*AA and will be taking up his place at Leeds University to study Biology and Chloe Tarry moves on to Aberystwyth University to study Human Biology and Health following her A*AA success at A Level standard.

We are proud of all our students.  Each of them has had their own personal journey and even though all students cannot achieve the highest grades, they have each gained extremely creditable academic performances in their own right; testament to their hard work over the two years and the care and dedication of their teachers and support staff.  We are really pleased that the overwhelming majority of students have achieved the grades required to access their first choice of university.

We have thoroughly enjoyed working with the Year 13 students who have demonstrated the highest levels of effort and commitment during their studies.  These qualities have been paramount in their success and will set them up well for whatever they have chosen to do in the next chapter of their adult lives.  They have been terrific role models for the school community, demonstrating leadership capacity and contributing significantly to the extracurricular life of the school; in particular through mentoring younger students and charity fundraising events.  Lady Lumley's School values the development of the whole person and the students should be proud of the young adults that they have become.  These results demonstrate that Lady Lumley’s School is continuously providing high quality education to students in the area and more importantly, that students feel challenged and supported to achieve their very best.  We are immensely proud of them and the successes that they have had, supported and encouraged by the expertise of their subject teachers and support staff. We wish them well, and look forward to welcoming back the next generation of engineers, teachers, doctors and entrepreneurs - amongst others! - over the coming years.


NEXT WEEK

GCSE results can be collected from the school hall between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. on Thursday 23rd August.

 

LOWER SCHOOL TIES

Our uniform suppliers, Rumours in Scarborough, have inadvertently supplied some wrong ties for students in Years 7 to 9.  If you have bought one of these Rumours will exchange it for the correct one.  The correct tie should have alternating broad green and gold stripes as in the accompanying picture.
