Nunnykirk wins Good Schools Guide Award
24 October 2012
Nunnykirk has been awarded a Good Schools Guide subject award for the quality of teaching and GCSE exam results in Art and Design (Photography).
The school has won the award four years in a row.
The Good Schools Guide was set up by two mothers looking for reliable information about prospective schools for their children. It has been running for over 25 years and is now considered as one of the most trusted sources of information about independent schools in the country.
Nunnykirk has always excelled in photography with a previous student ranking in the top five in the country for GCSE photography results.
All pupils at Nunnykirk who sat GCSE Art and Design (Photography) this year passed their exams with 100% Grade C and above, including 50% with A* grades.
Nunnykirk Headteacher Carol Hodgson said: “The Good Schools Guide has become the place to go if you want impartial advice on an independent or specialist school for your child so we are very pleased to have been given one of their special subject awards again for our photography exam results.
“The creative arts have always featured highly at Nunnykirk and photography in particular has produced excellent exam results and a number of our former pupils have gone on to have successful careers in this field.”
Dyslexia is a specific learning difficulty (SpLD), often inherited and is a lifelong condition. Dyslexia is much more than the traditional definition of ‘difficulty with words’ or ‘word blindness’.
Nunnykirk School is very happy to offer a taster day for any child with dyslexia whose parents are considering sending them to the school.
