Executive Principal’s Blog – 4 September 2015
At the end of this first week back at the start of an exciting new term I would like to particularly welcome our Year 7 students, as well as all the new learners joining our fabulous Sixth Form.
Over the summer there have been a number of major developments made to our learning environment and I would particularly like to thank our Site Manager, Richard Chambers and our hard working Site Staff and IT Team who have worked so hard and are continuing to transform Bushey Meads School.
At a time of some continued volatility in education, I would like to congratulate all the hard working Year 11 and Sixth Form students who achieved such fabulous results in the summer and wish them well for their future studies. At A level, all performance indicators indicated a strong upward trend – building on the success of previous years. There were some truly superb individual achievements with many students gaining places at some of the country’s top universities.
At GCSE level we were delighted with the results with 76% of all subjects across the school improving their A* – C results by an average of 16.4%! In addition 76% of all GCSE grades achieved were A* – C, with 23% being A* – A grades and 50% being A* – B. Naturally many of our Year 11 students are joining us here in the Sixth Form, ready to learn at the highest level and be role models and leaders, both here at school and beyond.
Over the coming weeks do encourage and support your children to make a very positive start to the new academic year and ensure that all of them achieve their true potential. In line with our school motto Aspire to Achieve, I know that we can all work together to make this a reality for everyone.
I would like to wish all students and staff every success for this year.
