THE future’s looking bright for students taking A-levels at a South Tyneside school.
St Wilfrid’s RC College joined with Cardinal Hume Catholic School in Gateshead, to offer the qualification last September.
And the AS-level results achieved by the 73 students on roll bodes well.
Headteacher Brendan Tapping said: “We are extremely pleased with the AS unit results we have received so far, in this our first year of post-16 provision.
“The staff and students have worked really hard to ensure students gain the most marks possible this year, to provide them with a sound foundation on which to build their A2 studies.
“We are very proud of what has been achieved so far, and look forward to some excellent results at the end of their courses next summer.”
Victoria Cramman, pictured left, assistant headteacher in charge of post-16 provision, said she was overwhelmed by the students’ achievements.
She said: “It is a great starting point and bodes well for them and for this year’s intake.”
