Re: AS Level/End of Year Results

We wish all our Year 12 students the best for their AS level and end of year exams.

Please note that in order to return to study at A2 students must achieve a minimum of an ‘E’ grade in two subjects they are continuing.

If a student receives a ‘U’ grade in any subject they will not be allowed to continue with it into A2.

Students who receive a ‘U’ grade and are left with less than three subjects to study will be required to choose another course at AS if they wish to continue. This will be dependent on grades received at GCSE and availability after the new Year 12 intake have been allocated their subjects.

Vaccination update

The NHS immunisation team visited us on 18/11/21 vaccinating students against Covid-19, aged 12-15 years whose parents had consented.
Government guidance was amended which meant that students are not eligible for the vaccine until 12 weeks after a positive PCR. The team worked hard to see as many students as possible but if your child was not able to receive their vaccination please be reassured that they will contact you and a new date will be arranged for the vaccinations in school. This is anticipated to be by the end of the week beginning 29/11/21
For students who were not able to receive their flu vaccine the team will also arrange a follow up in school by the end of January.

Diwali

Diwali is the annual celebration by Hindus, Sikhs, Bhuddhists and Jains that celebrates the victory of ‘good’ over ‘evil, as told by the story of Rama and Sita. It also signifies the start of the Hindu New Year. This year Diwali falls on 4th November 2021. The actual day differs every year due to the calendar based on the moon cycle. At Bosworth Academy, Diwali will be celebrated through assemblies, traditional food in the cafeteria, students wearing traditional garments and traditional music to see students to their buses at the end of the day.

GCSE Gold for Bosworth Students

Today Bosworth Academy students and staff are celebrating a fantastic set of GCSE results which are so well deserved after such a tumultuous time. Students, staff, parents and carers have once again worked together to overcome the challenges and pressures of the last two years to achieve this success.

This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher assessed grades, against a national standard, quality assured and then awarded by the exam boards.

“Our GCSE students have once again achieved some incredible results, we are all so proud of them. Throughout the last two years of disruption, they showed great resilience, adapting their approach to learning time and time again to whatever was thrown at them. They rose to every challenge, engaged fully in our ‘live’ remote lessons, and engaged brilliantly throughout their time in school. Students can have confidence that the grades achieved today will prepare them to succeed in the next stage of their education, training or in employment. As well as achieving great exam outcomes our students have acquired so many new skills including tenacity, creativity, and collaboration using digital media, because of the hurdles they have had to overcome. Adaptable learners who are able to apply and transfer their skills and knowledge to new contexts are increasingly attractive to employers. We look forward to seeing what our students will achieve in the future and I realise we’ll see many of them in our Sixth Form.

On behalf of our students, I’d like to thank our staff for the huge amount of unprecedented work that they have taken on this year. The professionalism with which staff have carried out this exceptional effort in supporting our students is profoundly impressive. I can’t thank them enough.”

Simon Brown, Headteacher

“What a rollercoaster journey these students have been on! The uncertainty and ambiguity they have had during these last two years have been relentless and unprecedented. Throughout the whole journey, they have conducted themselves professionally in adapting to the changing landscape of their learning and assessments. They have dealt with the upheaval and turbulence with real courage, character and resilience. Today is a day that celebrates not only their GCSE grades, but their character and they should all be very proud of themselves.”

Rebecca Harbour, Assistant Head of School Key Stage 4

‘Golden’ Success for Bosworth Students

Bosworth Academy Sixth Form students and staff are celebrating brilliant A level and AS level qualifications this summer.
This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher assessed grades, against a national standard and approved and awarded by the exam boards. The government is not publishing performance data for any schools or colleges this year due to the varying impact of the pandemic.

“We are immensely proud of all the work and achievements of our students, especially after such a difficult and disrupted year. Our students faced challenges like never before but remained resilient and determined to achieve their very best. This summer we celebrate our student’s incredible perseverance, resoluteness and continued dedication to study throughout their A/AS levels. The results they have achieved today are incredible, particularly when you consider the obstacles they have faced.

Their achievements are a testimony to the commitment of our staff who worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic, ensuring high-quality learning continued whether students were in school or working remotely. These efforts have enabled our students to progress onto higher education or employment, and we look forward to seeing what our students will achieve in the future.”

Simon Brown Headteacher

“We are incredibly impressed by the attitude and commitment our students have shown throughout their A level courses. They have demonstrated tremendous resilience and their hard work has been rewarded with so many students achieving excellent results. Both staff and students were disappointed that students were unable to sit their exams, but they quickly adapted their approach. This year’s teacher assessed grades will help many of our students secure their first choice destination in higher education, apprenticeships or employment. Recognition should also go to parents and carers, and our superb staff for the dedicated support they have given our students throughout their studies. I wish our students the very best for the future and look forward to seeing where it takes them. We hope many will keep in touch.”

Louise Holdback, Assistant Head of School – Sixth Form Leader
