Youngsters award night

STUDENTS from a Filey School have been honoured for their academic diligence and success.

The Year 10 pupils from Filey School were treated to a presentation evening to award their progress in four specific areas.

Filey mayor Richard Walker was joined by borough mayor Cllr Hazel Lynskey and mayoress Sheila Kettlewell to celebrate the successes.

Simon Smith, the school’s leader for Year Ten, said around 150 students from the year had received some form of accolade for their work, which included certificates for those who achieved an A* to C grade in GCSE English Literature - which they took in Year Nine.

There were also French Asset certificates given out on the evening, again for pupils who had impressed during their Year Nine exams, with internal awards handed to students who had achieved their targets or even bettered their aims in modular science and maths tests.

Mr Smith said the final awards on the evening were part on the school’s Go Green scheme, with students who are attaining 80 per cent or more of their target grades getting a certificate from headteacher Andy Dickinson.

Pupils achieving 100 per cent of their targets received a governors certificate.
