GCSE Results Day 2019: Smithdon High School




Officials at Hunstanton's Smithdon High School say they are going "from strength to strength", despite a fall in the numbers passing both English and Maths.

Fifty-eight per cent of students achieved at least a 4 grade in both subjects this year, down from a record 67 per cent last year.

But headteacher Simon Wilson said: "We are all tremendously proud of the Smithdon students this year.

"The school continues to grow from strength to strength with 58% of students gaining a 4+ in English and Maths.

"There have been some outstanding individual results across the ability range with many planning to study A Levels at Springwood Sixth Form.

"I would like to thank the staff for their dedication and the parents for their support in securing another successful year at Smithdon.
