University of Birmingham School pupils have been celebrating their GCSE results this morning, our second set of GCSE results as a School since opening in 2015. The results reflect the exceptional commitment displayed by our pupils and staff over the past five years here at UoB School. They showcase not only their academic accomplishments, but also their character virtues which have allowed them to reach their personal bests and achieve individual excellence.
“I am so impressed by our pupils, for their personal growth, and for their academic awards today, achieved at a time of such national turmoil”, remarks The University School’s Principal, Mr Colin Townsend. “I also thank our parents, carers, and families for their partnership with the School and offer my gratitude to the School’s staff for supporting and encouraging our learners to continue to achieve their personal bests despite such testing obstacles. Optimism and a ‘can do’ mind-set are so very important – and never more so than now”.
We would like to congratulate our pupils and wish them the very best for their next steps, whether that’s continuing their journey with us at UoBS Sixth Form or elsewhere.
