GCSE Results Day 2019: Bourne Academy results
Results have improved for the third consecutive year at Bourne Academy.
Notable high achievers were Sam Roddis, Elara Kirtland, Joseph Martin and Aaron Kennedy who achieved grades 7 to 9 in every subject studied.
Executive headteacher Lucy Conley said: “I would personally like to congratulate all the students and staff at Bourne Academy for their hard work over the last five years, culminating in today’s nervously-awaited results.
"As a school, we have seen some amazing individual grades as well as some exceptional performances from subject areas.
"As we all know, the new GCSE and BTEC exam specifications have brought much more challenge and rigour to every area of the curriculum that our students are educated in, with now a total emphasis on final exams in the majority of subjects including in the BTEC courses.
"The pressure on pupils and parents throughout the country has been immense, but Bourne Academy has most certainly risen to the challenge yet again.
"We look forward to welcoming many of the pupils back to the sixth form in September where we are sure they will continue their academic success.”
Bourne Academy has seen improvement across every subject category this year, including core subjects, English Baccalaureate and all other subjects.
In addition, the BTEC subjects yet again saw an incredible 100 per cent pass rate, with 100 per cent pass rate and 47 per cent of grades at Distinction and Distinction*, equivalent to a GCSE grade 7 and 9.
The school estimates that the ‘Progress 8’ measure that is closely scrutinised by Ofsted is set to at least double from +0.24 in 2018 and will show that Bourne Academy pupils continue to make progress well above the national average.
