Year 13 Results 2021
Year 13 students at Backwell School have been receiving their A Level and vocational subject results this morning (Tuesday 10 August), following the second year of disruption to public examinations in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Grades have been awarded based on assessment systems established by schools following guidance set out by the Government. These procedures took into account the impact of the pandemic on pupils’ learning and were carefully calibrated to ensure that students were not adversely affected. These were then reviewed, moderated and confirmed by Exam Boards.
Headteacher Jon Nunes stated: “I am extremely proud of all of our students who have met the huge challenges they have faced over the last 18 months with great determination. Not only have they studied incredibly hard, they have also grown into well rounded, thoughtful young people: we wish them every success in the future. I would also like to thank parents, carers and the staff at Backwell School for all their hard work and for the incredible support they have given.”
The vast majority of students who applied have already successfully had university places confirmed, many of which are at their first choice universities. Others have secured highly-prized apprenticeships and other training offers.
Head of Sixth Form, Rose Haywood said: “The Sixth Form Team are delighted to celebrate the achievements of our students. As we do every year, we will work with each of them to ensure that they achieve their desired next steps, be that university, an apprenticeship, other training or employment. Support and guidance for future plans will be available on an ongoing basis, including next year and beyond. We wish them all the very best of luck for their next steps”
