This year we want to pay tribute to our wonderful Y13 cohort whose last year with us has been so blighted by the Covid-19 pandemic, which has resulted in school closures since mid-March and the cancellation of public exams; this was not the way we would have wished them to finish their five years with us. They have been fantastic ambassadors during their time with us and have added greatly to our school community and culture. They have been excellent role models for our younger students particularly this year when we welcomed Y7 and Y8 into our school.
Students at Durham Sixth Form Centre are celebrating success today following the publication of results, marking yet another year of excellent academic and personal achievements.
Today students in our four secondary schools received their A Level and BTEC results.

We are delighted that their hard work and commitment has been duly rewarded and feel they are fully justified in receiving the truly excellent results awarded today.
