Year 11 pupils have been celebrating their achievements after receiving their GCSE results this morning.
The results today reflect the exceptional commitment displayed by our pupils and staff over the past five years here at UoB School. Their demonstration of character virtues has allowed so many to reach their potential and personal bests, achieving individual excellence.
“I hold admiration for each of our 153 pupils, for their personal growth and character development, and for their academic awards today achieved across two years of learning recovery since their turbulent time in key stage 3’, remarks The University School’s Principal, Mr Colin Townsend. ‘We aim always to support each young person to achieve individual excellence and an aspirational onward pathway – be that to A level or further study, an apprenticeship, or work. Where that means gaining top grades we look to that – with 41 pupils attaining at least five passes at grade 7 or higher, and 63 entries awarded at the highest standard of grade 9. I also thank our parents, carers, and families for their partnership with the School and the School’s staff for their care and encouragement to our learners, alongside their subject expertise. Optimism and a ‘can do’ mind-set are both powerful and purposeful – and never less so than at this time.”
We would like to congratulate all of our pupils and wish them the very best in their next steps, whether that’s continuing their journey with us at UoBS Sixth Form or elsewhere.
