Ferryhill Business and Enterprise College has started September with record results yet again this year. English GCSE results have peaked at 79% A*-C which has just exceeded the school’s previous best by 1%. The school also has good Maths GCSE results scoring at similar levels to the last 2 years.

Mr Brennan, Headteacher at FBEC said, “We are immensely proud of our students. English and Maths GCSEs were new courses and a number of schools nationally, have seen their results decline. FBEC students were aware of the extra demands from these new GCSEs and attended extra lessons after school to ensure that they achieved the right grade. Students have performed really well and we have nothing but praise for their efforts.”

The school also celebrated record results in its IT course known as ECDL, with every one of the 113 students achieving a grade C or above, with many students achieving A and A* grades. Mrs Attle, Head of IT at the school said, “The results are fantastic and students are really pleased”.

The schools signature subject of Business Studies continues its meteoric performance and the school is again expecting results to be in the Top 1% nationally. Miss Gibson described the students work as “outstanding”.

Mr Brennan said “It has been another great year for FBEC and the school is now very much in demand and is oversubscribed for current Year 7s”.

Applications for year 6 students wishing to attend FBEC next year, starts with our open evening on the 28th September. Parents, carers and students will of course, be made most welcome.
