Year 11 Bosworth Academy students and staff celebrated some wonderful results at GCSE level. With Ofqual ensuring GCSE outcomes return to pre-pandemic 2019 levels the high grades achieved today are significant.
Though this year’s cohort of year 11 have seen learning disrupted through the pandemic they have risen to the challenge of examinations returning nearly to normal.
“It was amazing to see so many happy students this morning, celebrating their results with their parents, carers and friends. Our year 11 students have shown real purpose these last few years in wanting to achieve above and beyond what they thought possible. They showed such determination, resilience and tenacity in rising to the challenge of 2023 exams, which Ofqual have ensured are now comparable with pre-pandemic 2019 outcomes.
I’m proud of how they have engaged in so many aspects of wider school life, remaining optimistic and motivated to overcome the challenges they had to face during a turbulent secondary education.
I’d like to thank our superb, dedicated team of staff, who have inspired and supported our students to achieve great things, at times helping students to overcome such adversity. We all wish our year 11 students success in the future, many of whom we’ll be welcoming into our successful Sixth Form next week.”
Simon Brown, Headteacher
“We are so proud of how students have done this year. Throughout their time with us they have demonstrated excellent character and citizenship, overcoming obstacles to achieve success. It was very clear, throughout the examination series, that students had grown into mature and responsible young adults and we cannot wait to see the incredible contributions they will make to society in the future.”
Tom Worn, Assistant Headteacher; Key Stage 4
