Bosworth Academy students and staff are once again celebrating another amazing set of A level and AS level results. After months of hard work, students have achieved the results required to see them progress to their choice of University. Incredibly, a third of over four hundred exam entries were either an A* or A grade! This bucks the national trend where this figure has dropped.
Simon Brown, Head of School, said ‘The results achieved today reflect the incredible progress that our sixth form students have made through their determined practice and dedication to learning. A record number of students have achieved the extremely demanding A*/A grades and as a result are accessing top universities including Oxford. Their achievements are a testimony to the commitment and expertise of Bosworth staff who care for our students deeply. A huge well done to all!’
Louise Holdback, Assistant Head of School – Sixth Form, commented ‘We are really proud of the results achieved by all of our students. Hard work has meant that they have been able to achieve their aspirations. We wish them all the best and look forward to hearing where the future takes them.’
Some individual successes included:
Jack Rawson who achieved A*A*A*A* in Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Computing and is going to read Maths at the University of Oxford

Parent of Mia Neave commented, “Mia was so well supported by Bosworth Academy staff, above and beyond our expectations.”
Mother of Brent Efuribe said, “I have nothing but praise for Bosworth! You opened your doors to our son, when another school closed theirs. He has been motivated and empowered by your teachers. Thank you, thank you. Thank you for believing in him.”
Bosworth Academy is proud that we challenge all students to ‘be better than they thought they could be’ by raising the aspirations of every learner. In the increasingly sought after STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects in higher education, a tremendous 43% of all grades achieved by Bosworth students were A* or A. At Bosworth we understand how creative subjects have such an important role in harnessing students’ creativity in readiness for the world of work. We are proud to share that four-fifths of all grades achieved in creative subjects such as Art, Drama, Music, Photography and Textiles were an A*, A or B grade.
Following the introduction of reformed, linear A-levels with updated, more demanding content, students have really risen to the challenge. This year includes the first set of results for reformed subjects; Film Studies, Further Mathematics, Media Studies and Music Technology, requiring students and staff to adapt quickly to these changes.
Beyond success measured in grades we are confident that our young people leave Bosworth having developed student agency – embracing creativity, being reflective and acting responsibly to effect change. We strongly believe that our students have both the will and ability to positively influence their own lives as well as the world around them.
