"Students should be proud” on GCSE results day at Bridge Learning Campus
Students at Bridge Learning Campus have been encouraged to be very proud of their achievements as they collected the results of their GCSE and Vocational qualifications today.
Despite a number of last minute changes from Ofqual, Pearson and the Department for Education, school staff at BLC and across the country have worked hard to give students confirmed grades today in all subjects other than BTEC Level 1/2 qualifications, enabling students to move onto the next step in their education with as much certainty as possible.
Headteacher Mr Maule said;
"This has been an incredibly difficult year for GCSE students across the country, testing their resilience and character. Our students should be especially proud of their results and they can be reassured that teachers and school leaders undertook a rigorous and process to ensure these results are an accurate, honest and fair reflection of students' hard work over the last few years. We wish all of our students every success as they move on to their Post 16 destinations and hope they will keep us updated with their future progress.
Thanks must go to all of their teachers, but also to every other member of staff who has given advice, support and encouragement over these students' time at BLC. It takes a whole community to help a student achieve their best, and I am proud and grateful for everyone's contribution, including those of our students' parents, carers and families, in making our wider campus community as strong as it is".
Given the unique nature of how results were awarded this year, the school will not be publishing headline figures. Teachers and careers specialists are at BLC today to continue to work with the young people and their families, ensuring that all students have places to move onto for further study or apprenticeships.
