    Backwell Year 11 students were in school today to collect their results and to celebrate their impressive achievements.

    Despite having their education significantly disrupted over several years, this year group were graded ‘normally’ in a return to the pre-pandemic standards of 2019 and before. They have shown great resilience and positivity in their approach to GCSEs and have been rewarded with fantastic results.

  • Post 16 Exam Results 2023

    Published 23/08/23

    On Thursday 17 August, our Year 13 students at Backwell School received their A-Level and vocational subject results.

    Our students have faced ongoing challenges post-pandemic, including sitting their GCSEs under very different circumstances. After four years of significant disruption to their education, these students have taken exams that have been marked ‘normally’ - at the same level as the 2019 cohort, the last year of results before the pandemic.

    Despite the challenges they have faced, Backwell students have received fantastic results and 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 extremely valuable apprenticeships and other training offers.

    We are incredibly proud of our year 13 students, who have met the huge challenges they have faced over the last few years with positivity and determination. We are looking forward to following their progress as they embark on an exciting new chapter in their lives at university, in training and employment, in many cases preceded by wonderfully exotic travel plans. Congratulations to all our leavers and thanks to parents/carers and Backwell staff for the support and expertise you have given them.

    Support and guidance for future plans will be available on an ongoing basis for those who want help or advice.

    We wish all of our Year 13 leavers, all the very best of luck for their future steps.
