Despite significant national changes to the A level Examination system, students at Harrogate Grammar School Sixth Form have achieved exceptional results with 61% of all A Level grades being at A*-B. This demonstrates an outstanding performance from a Sixth Form which prides itself on its inclusivity and comprehensive intake, with 96% of all exam entries achieved at A*-D. In addition, an impressive 31% of grades were A*-A. The outcomes for our BTEC courses are equally notable with 75% of all results achieving the highest level of Distinction* or Distinction. This shows Harrogate Grammar School’s continued commitment to world class provision and to enhancing opportunities for all. Our students have yet again made progress beyond national levels.
