Students and staff at Tapton School Academy Trust celebrate GCSE success
Following years of unprecedented disruption to their education, students at Bradfield, Chaucer, Forge Valley and Tapton secondary schools received their GCSE grades today.
The Year 11 students, who were the first students in 2 years to sit formal exams, celebrated their results alongside their friends and teachers.
Scott Burnside, Director of Secondary Education for Tapton School Academy Trust, said: “I am extremely proud of the achievements of all of our Y11 students.
I am pleased that the fantastic relationships between students, staff and families, alongside enormous hardwork, has seen so many successful outcomes.”
Covid-19 has had a profound impact on this year group, with the entire GCSE course disrupted. Students have shown incredible resilience in order to secure their results, and open up Post 16 pathways, as they continue to realise their life chances and dreams.
Scott continued: “We wish our students all the very best in the future and look forward to welcoming many of them into our 6th Forms in September.”
