A big “Well Done!” to the class of ’21!

For the second time in a week, staff and students at St Margaret’s were celebrating the amazing achievements of their students in public exams.

On Tuesday, the Academy’s Sixth Form students achieved some very impressive A-level and BTEC results. Today it was the turn of the Year 11 students, as the Exam Boards published GCSE and Level 2 BTEC results.

Principal, Stephen Brierley said: “So many of our students have done spectacularly well!”

“This year-group’s GCSE and BTEC courses have been hugely disrupted by the pandemic, yet so many of them have worked consistently hard throughout the various lockdowns and can be so proud of their results today.”

Stephen was quick to pay tribute to the teachers and support staff who have also contributed to such a bumper crop of results, he said: “Of course, results like these don’t happen by accident, each grade has come about as a result of carefully-planned and sequenced teaching, consistent academic and pastoral support, and gentle encouragement too.

“Our staff have many years’ experience in providing this sort of service, and once again the quality of their work is clear for all to see.

“We’re expecting that, with results this good, there’ll be some pressure on our Sixth Form places this year. But our Admissions Number will almost certainly be high enough to allow anyone who’s got the grades to enroll on the ‘A’-level and BTEC courses they want to study. Even those who’ve not yet applied are more than welcome to get in touch and talk to our Sixth Form team.”

But his last word was reserved for the most important people today – our fantastic Year 11 students. “Well done to the class of ’21! We’re thrilled with your achievements and proud of each and every one of you. Many, many congratulations.”
