Guilsborough Academy students celebrate after a challenging two years
79 per cent of Guilsborough Academy students have secured their first-choice destination, with 11 per cent going to a Russell Group University. A number of students have also secured apprenticeships with prestigious companies including Cosworth Engineering and Motorola. Sam Bullock has secured a highly competitive internship with IBM.
Among the many high performing students, Daisy Miller achieved AAA and has been accepted to study Sport and Exercise Science at Loughborough University. Luke Munro achieved 4 grade As. Isaac Vann has secured a place at St Andrews to study Mathematics. Rachel Baker achieved A*A*A and is planning to take a gap year.
“While the word ‘unprecedented’ may have become part our common language over the past 18 months, it has been a time which none of us will forget. I am immensely proud of the work our students and staff have completed and the achievements of our students deserve to be celebrated. Examination results days always result in mixed emotions for staff and students alike. This year in some ways more than ever. The cohort of students collecting their results today have faced an unprecedented level of challenge. As a body of staff we could not be more proud of the way our students have faced adversity, demonstrated an incredible level of resilience and achieved fantastic results in spite of it all. Building a community predicated on mutual respect has been more pertinent than ever during this challenging year. Our Year 13 students will leave a lasting impression for future Sixth Form students, demonstrating what is possible when staff and students work together towards a common goal.”
