Students at George Pindar School are celebrating today as they receive their GCSE results.
George Pindar Principal, Mrs Lesley Welsh, said “Our curriculum is specifically designed to support students in making progress towards their next steps in further education and training. This year we have seen incredible success in vocational subjects such as Hair and Beauty, Food and Cookery and Childcare and a number of students are going on to take further qualifications in these areas. We are also delighted with our students’ performance in Art, Music and Sport.
“At George Pindar we are really proud to support the development of the whole child, and it is heartening to see the progress some of our students have made in their time with us.”
The school has seen some very strong individual performances with several students achieving grade 9s but they are keen to stress that pupils of all abilities have worked hard and achieved great results.
Amy-Lou Forrester achieved a raft of high scores including an outstanding grade 9 in Maths and Hannah Harker also achieved an excellent set of results including a grade 9 in Art & Design.
Mrs Welsh adds “We wish all our students all the very best in their futures and hope that they will look back fondly on their time with us and continue to be Proud to be Pindar!”

The Trust now also includes Barlby High School, Vale of York Academy, fellow Scarborough school, Graham and four other primary schools in York and North Yorkshire. Graham School formally joined Hope Sentamu Learning Trust in March this year, although the school had been working in partnership with Hope since early 2018.
