Tynemouth’s newest school is celebrating success in their first A-Level results.
Kings Priory School opened last September following the merger of The King’s School and nearby Priory Primary School.
And students are celebrating successful grades, with three being offered places at either Oxford or Cambridge university.
Principal Gill Hewlett said: “It has been a privilege to be part of the education of these committed, hard-working and talented young people.
“They are the best ambassadors we could wish for in our first year as an all-thorough Academy and I would like to commend all our staff who have supported the Sixth Form to achieve these results.”
With their top grades Michael Bentham, Jade Hope and Alex Shaw have all secured places to read Music, Psychology and Joint Honours English and German, respectively, at either Oxford or Cambridge.
Mrs Hewlett said: “We are extremely proud of not only these extremely gifted academics, but also all of our pupils who have worked and achieved so well.
“Our thanks go to all of the staff and families that have supported our tremendous young people throughout their school career. It has all been worth it in the end.”
Elsewhere Jack Pyle excelling himself in History, achieving three grades higher than predicted; Emma Grant embarking on a Masters Degree at Leeds University as a result of her achievements; and Maheen Ahmed will be reading Optometry at Manchester University.
