School holds open evening for Year 6 pupils

3rd October 2017


A NEWLY consolidated North Yorkshire school opened its doors to hundreds of prospective pupils and parents.

Northallerton School & Sixth Form College held its open evening for transitioning Year 6 primary pupils following the merger of its upper and lower school sites.

The school, which formerly housed students in Year 7 to 9 on its Brompton Road site, has now consolidated all students from Years 8 to 13 on its Grammar School Lane premises with Year 7s set to move up in September 2018. 

Principal of Northallerton School and Sixth Form College Chris Byrne said: “It has been an extremely positive start for us this term having the majority of our students together on one school site.

“Our vision was always to create a one through school in Northallerton, including our Sixth Form, to enable us to achieve the very best outcome for all our students.

“Being in one place enables us to better pool our resources, strengthen our teams, work more effectively and efficiently and improve what we do and what we provide.”

The open evening followed yet another successful year for GCSE and A level results at the 1100 pupil school which is rated ‘Good’ by Ofsed inspectors.

“I am extremely proud of our results which have improved once again this year, especially with the new government grading systems that have now been put in place,” added Mr Byrne.

“Northallerton School & Sixth Form College continues to grow and develop and I was delighted to welcome all of the new parents and pupils to our school.”

Visitors were invited to meet teachers and tour the facilities of the college, as well as talk to students of all ages about their experiences and quiz staff on a host of educational and extra-curricular activities.
