The top performing schools in Northeast are revealed in Parent Power, The Sunday Times Schools Guide 2019.

St Cuthbert's Catholic High School, has won The Sunday Times Northeast State Secondary School of the Year award in recognition of its outstanding academic results this year. More than two-thirds of all A-level outcomes secured the top A*, A or B grades, while 32.2% of GCSEs gained A*/A/9/8/7 grades.

Alastair McCall, editor of Parent Power, said: “St Cuthbert’s serves its community in the west end of Newcastle with great distinction. Its location in one of the most socially and economically challenged districts in the northeast is not used as an excuse to fail, but rather to inspire the boys lucky enough to come here to achieve their dreams.

“The staff work tirelessly to open up a world of options to the children with the school’s Catholic faith at the centre of life. It thoroughly deserves to be the Northeast State Secondary School of the Year.”
