Students, parents and staff are celebrating A Level results today, with students’ achievements a testament to their hard work, grit and determination over the past two turbulent years of study. 

“We are exceptionally proud of the resilience and fortitude shown by our students and for achieving many personal and academic successes over the last two challenging years”, said Acting Head, Mrs Adèle O’Doherty.

She warmly congratulated students and staff on a strong set of results, commenting, “Our students knew they would not sit external examinations this year, but nonetheless they put their hearts and souls into the assessments set by their teachers, who themselves worked tirelessly to ensure students received results they deserved. 

Students also seized the many opportunities offered by the school’s own Limitless Learning programme and the GDST

Masterclasses which offered chances to develop leadership skills, prepare for university and deepen their knowledge on a range of subjects. I sincerely thank the staff of Northampton High School for their unwavering support of our students, their professionalism and hard work in preparing the Teacher Assessed Grades (TAGs) for the examination boards.” 

“Our students are taking up a variety of exciting opportunities as they leave the school. Whilst the majority are taking up university places, others are embarking upon apprenticeships, taking a gap year or joining the armed forces. We are proud that a Northampton High School and GDST education has enabled them to set out their paths, fulfil their ambitions and take the next step in their journeys with confidence.
