  • Hard work and determination pays off for students at North Durham Academy
    23rd August 2018

    Students at North Durham Academy have performed well across a wide range of GCSE subjects.

Specifically, 62% of students are walking away with a pass in English at Grade 4+ and 51% do so in Mathematics.
