This year also saw the stars of the hugely popular CBBC Our School programme, filmed at Conyers School, receiving their GCSE results. The CBBC Our School programme has tracked the journey of this year’s Year 11 from their primary schools in Year 6, to sitting their GCSE exams five years later and celebrating their Conyers journey at their prom.
Inspirational student, Harry Harland, who featured on the show and who has overcome a number of personal challenges during his time at Conyers, received an excellent set of exam results, achieving 9 strong passes. Fellow student Nathan Wood-Gordon, who has secured a scholar’s contract at Middlesbrough Football club, achieved a strong set of results including good passes in English and Maths. Nathan has already enjoyed huge success as a footballer and recently became the youngest-ever player to feature in a competitive game for Middlesbrough’s first-team. He also became the first 2002-born player to make an appearance in any of England’s professional leagues, or domestic cups.
Conyers Head teacher Louise Spellman said “These wonderful results contain many stories of individual success and students achieving excellence.”
“We are delighted for all students who have achieved their target grades and look forward to welcoming many back into Sixth Form in September. I would like to thank the staff who have shown dedication and who have worked tirelessly to ensure every student had the best chance of success. Parents also deserve thanks from our students for their patience, support and kindness.”
