GCSE Press Release
All those that are part of the St Bede’s Catholic College community are delighted to celebrate the successes of Year 11 students this year.
Rob King, Principal, said: “This fantastic group of students has lived through a hugely challenging two years. Despite the uncertainty, they have worked hard and risen to the challenges in a way that is so impressive. These children have grown in all aspects of their life, but today is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate their academic successes. Although we have many great performances at the top end, with large numbers of grades 8 and 9, we want to recognise all the huge achievements from students that have been dealing with very difficult circumstances. These students have earned the grades that will allow them to take their next steps in life. The students are a credit to themselves, their families and the college and we know they are going to make important contributions to our society in the future”.
“I would also like to thank the staff who have supported the students wonderfully, both through emotional care and in preparing them well for their examinations.”
Teresa Gilpin, Chair of Governors, said: “Well done to everyone, students and staff, in this most challenging of years. We wish each and every student success in their next steps”.
