Mrs Lucy Conley, Chief Executive Officer at South Lincolnshire Academies Trust said “I am so pleased to be able to celebrate these exceptional results with the students at Bourne Academy. These students have coped incredibly over the last few years since having not being able to sit their GCSE examinations in Year 11. I am incredibly proud that they have adapted, worked hard throughout their time in Sixth Form and have produced a fantastic set of results. Following several years of grade adjustment due to the pandemic, we are happy to report that whilst results nationally have understandably been lower this year we have seen significant numbers of students achieve the highest possible grades and this is higher than 2019 levels. The attitudes of the students have been superb and we wish all of them the very best for the future.”
Mr Matt Sammy, Head of School at Bourne Academy added “It has been wonderful to celebrate the successes with students today. I would like to thank the Sixth Form team and teaching staff for all of their advice, guidance and outstanding teaching that students have received throughout their Sixth Form journey. The vast majority of students have achieved their first-choice university or apprenticeship offers and we wish them well in their future careers. Our Sixth Form has continued to expand and we are looking forward to welcoming a record number of new students joining our Sixth Form in September from secondary schools across the region.”
