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
