After achieving excellent results in GCSE and A Level this summer, we’ve got something to shout about. The school is the highest performing in Sunderland on the national benchmark of 5 or more A* to C grades (including English and Maths) at GCSE, with 73%. A Level results are again very high, and in the top 8% nationally. Head Teacher Nick Hurn said, “We are really thrilled with these results, which are just reward for the hard work and dedication of our outstanding teachers, the commitment and effort of our students, and the excellent support of their families. We start the new school year with renewed enthusiasm, knowing that St. Robert’s is going from strength to strength.”
A big thank you to Honor Poulton from Gentoo for nominating pupils for a PoSBO Award.
Whilst we did not win, it is a great honour to be shortlisted. It also shows how hard pupils have been working to develop intergenerational links in the local community; visiting Peacehaven care home, leaf clearing around elderly peoples’ bungalows; litter picking in the local area. People have commented on what a fantastic job pupils have been doing and what a positive image they promote of St Robert’s.
The ceremony was attended by Ashiya and Hannah (Y8)
During PSHE, Year 10 students have been learning about Enterprise. Volunteers from the Young Enterprise scheme came into school to speak to pupils about interview technique, managing their money, avoiding debt and consumer rights and responsibilities.
“Young Enterprise was really good as we got to learn real life lessons; things we will need to use later. I enjoyed the activities, especially the games such as ‘Spinvestment’”. (Adrian, Y10)
The Young Enterprise team will also be coming in to speak to Year 11 during PSHE later this year. A big thank you for all their time.
Here is what’s on at St Roberts this year:-
