A-level results 2020: Bourne Academy
Bourne Academy pupils have had a 'very good and improved set of A-Level and BTEC' results despite being unable to sit their exams.
Today (Thursday, August 13) pupils received their results which were judged by their teachers and confirmed by the examination boards.
Despite the uncertainty surrounding examinations and school results, there has been an 100 per cent pass rate at Bourne Academy which is part of the South Lincolnshire Academies Trust.
South Lincolnshire Academies Trust executive headteacher, Lucy Conley, said: "These very good results and the improvement from last year realistically reflects the hard work of the students and staff since September 2018 at a time when there have been lots of uncertainty surrounding examinations and school results nationally."
She added: "For this year, rather than share the details of individual success stories, I would like to share that we are extremely proud of how all of our sixth form students have conducted themselves during this long period of time away from school whilst waiting for these results.
"Their attitudes and support for the situation they have found themselves in has been exemplary."
Mrs Conley said that the cohort of learners has been the highest ability group to complete their studies at the Bourne Academy.
She described the 286 entries as a 'great success' with 46 per cent receiving A*- A equivalent.
Of the A-level grades 25 per cent were A*-A; 60 per cent were A*-B grades; 86 per cent A*-C grades and 100 per cent scored between an A*-D grades.
There was also an 100 per cent pass rate for students with BTEC qualifications with 46 per cent achieving 'Distinction-Distinction*' grades, which is equivalent to A Level A* - A grades.
Mrs Conley said: "The good performance across the school means that the vast majority of the students have achieved their first choice university and apprenticeship offers and we wish all of our sixth form group all the very best for the future and we have encouraged them all to keep in touch with us at Bourne Academy.”
Only nine per cent of pupils are needing to go through the examination appeals process to explore the possibility of using their higher mock exam grade rather than the grade issued by the examination boards.
