GCSE Results 2022
Backwell Year 11 students were celebrating on Thursday 25 August after receiving a brilliant set of GCSE results.
The school quad was full of smiles, hugs and words of congratulations as students, staff and parents gathered to celebrate.
As with all other students across the country, the pandemic had a huge effect on their learning over the past few years. However this year group showed great resilience and applied themselves making the most of the support from their teachers, and these results reward them for all their efforts.
The results show that 80% of students achieved five 9-4 grades including English and Maths.
Bobby B confirmed that he had found the GCSE period hard work but after collecting his results he felt “great! The revision in particular was challenging but it made me feel prepared each time I sat an exam. You just have to go for it and try your best. I’m really happy as I have the grades I need to study my chosen courses at Sixth Form.”
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 for the next stages of their education.
Headteacher Jon Nunes said “Congratulations to our Year 11 students; they should be very proud of what they have achieved. They are a wonderful group of young people and we are thrilled that so many of these students have applied to stay at Backwell School for their Sixth Form studies. We wish all of Year 11 the very best of luck with the next stages of their lives.”
