Year 11 (GCSE) Results 2021
Backwell Year 11 students were today (Thursday 12 August) celebrating after receiving a fantastic set of GCSE results.
This year group has, of course, faced huge upheaval and challenge during the last two years, so it was wonderful to see their delight in learning that their hard work and resilience had been rewarded. Amid all the media focus on exam results this year, it was great to hear the students reflecting that their results were a fair recognition of the hard work they had put in at such a difficult time.
It was extremely pleasing to see that the vast majority of Backwell students had secured a place at the institution and course of their choice and it was typical of these students that they were most focused on congratulating their friends and classmates on what they had achieved.
Headteacher Jon Nunes said “I am incredibly proud of what our Year 11 students have achieved and of the way they have handled the additional challenges they have faced over the last 18 months. We are thrilled that so many of these students have applied to stay at Backwell School for their Sixth Form studies and look forward to welcoming them back in September.
Today also marks the end of a very long process for our staff as well. I would like to thank all my colleagues for their dedication over this period of time, especially our Exams Team for their resilience and hard work over the past few months”.
