In light of the Government’s decision to award GCSEs in line with teacher assessment, we are delighted that Blacon High School students are today celebrating the grades they so richly deserve.
Once again, a significant number of our students achieved some of the highest grades across all areas of the curriculum. It is fantastic to share in their success following such a challenging year and to see that the culmination of their hard work and resilience has been rewarded appropriately. All of our students are going on to a range of high quality destinations and their results have enabled them to access the courses of their choice, whether that be A Levels, vocational courses or apprenticeships.
Headteacher, Rachel Hudson said: ‘Today has been a wonderful opportunity to see our students once more and to celebrate their well-deserved results after what has been a unique and challenging academic year. These results are thanks to the hard work, commitment and dedication of all students and staff in the school and reflect the strong partnerships which are so vital to the school’s success.’
This year’s outcomes reflect the highest aspirations that the school holds for all of its students and will serve as a legacy to motivate the new Year 11, as they embark on their final year at Blacon High School.
Furthermore, Blacon High School is once again extremely proud to announce that a further four students have won fully funded bursary places via the Hope Opportunity Trust and will be studying their A Levels at some of the country’s top independent schools. They will be joining almost thirty Blacon High School students who have been successful in achieving places on the bursary scheme over the last eight years. Most are now studying at university or have gone on to some fantastic careers including, veterinary science and astrophysics.
