This year there were double GCSE celebrations at Greenfield Community College at both Aycliffe and Shildon. Greenfield staff were delighted that the first set of results as an expanded school revealed high levels of achievement and great progress. Early indications show Greenfield results to be above the national average in English at both C+ grades and at A/A*, rapidly improving in maths and ICT, outstanding in MFL and Art and, in fact, strong across all subjects thus reflecting the school’s vision of raising aspirations and transforming lives in a successful learning community. 

With 62% of students at the Aycliffe Campus achieving 5A*- C grades including English and Maths, the school is likely to be above the national average and once again it will be one of the top performing schools in the county. 

Special congratulations go to Katie BlenkinsoppMaisie ClarkHolly HardyStewart McCaffrey and Leonie Wong who each achieved 10 or more A/A* grades on the Aycliffe Site and to Jessica Hall and Linda Nodding for achieving the top grades in 6 subjects, to Niamh Ellison for 8 A/A* grades and to Bethany Algie Lee-Shield and Kate Bell for an achieving A/A* in 9 subjects on the Sunnydale Campus. Across the whole school Greenfield students achieved a staggering 342 A/A* grades, with almost half the cohort achieving at least one top grade. 

David Priestley, executive headteacher, said " Governors and staff are delighted to celebrate such strong results on both campuses in our first year as an expanded school. These excellent results will allow our students to move into the next phase of their lives and we wish them every success."
