‘Results day is an important day in the lives of our students. It’s a day where we see the reward for five years of commitment and hard work so, this morning, it was wonderful to have the privilege of sharing these life-changing moments with our students and their families at SBL Academy in Oldland Common.’
Overall results have improved considerably this year, in particular, outcomes in Maths and English have continued to climb. At this early stage, 40% of students have achieved a pass at 5+ in Maths and English and 73% have secured a pass at grade 4+ in these subjects. This represents a strong improvement on 2018 results and is testament to the high levels of commitment shown by hard-working students, staff and our supportive parents. Science results were strong once again this year as well as seeing improvements in History, Languages and a number of other subjects from the previous year.
Principal, Dean Anderson, was very pleased with the hard work of students in Year 11:
“Following last week’s Post 16 results, it is a delight to once again see so many SBL students do so well. In particular, it is a pleasure to be able to tangibly see the rewards for this group of students who have really responded positively to what we are offering at SBL. High standards and a wide range of opportunities to learn, both inside and outside of the classroom, has led to this group of students being in a position where the vast majority can make positive choices on what they want to do in the next phase of their lives. To have so many students staying with us in Post 16 study from September is a wonderful reflection of the improvements we continue to see at SBL and the positive attitudes of our students and their families.”
Mr Anderson went on to say:
“There are so many students I’d like to mention but I would like to publicly congratulate the following high achieving students:
Jack Davies, Harriet Harding, Marley Toghill, Jade Morgan, Emma Norris, Toby Godfrey and Tom Brodie.
Our highest attainers include:
Last week it was a pleasure to see that all of our students heading to Higher Education were able to secure strong university placements. This week, the next crop of Post 16 students has shown that they are also ready for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.”
