Year 11 Exam Results 2021
It was a pleasure to welcome our Year 11 students back to BLC today (Thursday 12th August 2021) to collect their results. I am so proud of what they have all achieved and the resilience, strength and positivity they have shown over the last two years in withstanding so many disruptions to their learning.
I am very grateful (and a little in awe) of the professionalism, dedication and hard work of all of the staff that have supported these young people throughout their education at BLC and the meticulous way in which they assessed each student's achievements in each subject.
Every single student, here at BLC and all across the country, deserves to be very proud of each of their grades and we wish them all every success as they move on to study A-levels and other post-16 qualifications at local colleges and sixth-form centres.
Congratulations to each and every one of you.

In Year 7 our children are joined by fellow students from our primary partners through an outstanding transition program. Through our student induction days and by visiting students in their primary schools, we build a detailed picture of the students who join us so that new starters are made to feel as much a part of BLC as our existing students.
Through Years 7 and 8, our students are challenged to think and to build upon their independent learning skills; our students take massive steps in learning and development. We aim to make these years as enriching, safe and exciting as possible so that everybody is ready for their own next steps and can fulfil their potential. At BLC we’ve moved to a curriculum model where students get their daily diet of core subjects but alongside that they will have nine week blocks of specialist subject lessons. This means that students can really thrive and hone their subject skills in great depth before experiencing another subject.
At the end of Year 8 students start making the exciting choices that will shape their school lives and beyond.
Years 9-11 open up the gateway for our students to the rest of their lives; it is the culmination of learning, skills and endeavour that has been their foundations in earlier years.
We offer a broad curriculum which suits the needs and talents of our students whilst providing them with various opportunities to extend their wider curriculum. Most students study nine GCSE subjects (or equivalents) from a broad curriculum of academic, creative subjects. Students are supported to develop highly effective study skills including an extended school day in Year 11 to enable personalised support for GCSE exams.
We expect our students to be role models and expect them to be polite, well-mannered and business-like in their appearance and attitude to learning.
By rising to meet our high expectations, our students are fully equipped to access extensive opportunities available to them in post 16 education by the time they leave Bridge Learning Campus. Our students can be confident they can meet the needs of employers, colleges and universities as they move onto the next stage of their education and training.
