Executive Principal’s Blog – 8.9.23: The exciting journey continues…

At the end of last term, over 800 students were recognised for their amazing achievements during 2022.23 in our prestigious Prize Giving Assemblies. It was delightful to be able to welcome parents and carers to these events and it made for a really lovely and very positive way to end the term. These occasions make us proud and remind us what an amazing school we have at Bushey Meads.

We are also immensely proud of this year’s A level and GSCE results which continue to speak of an outstanding school and one that continues to improve year on year. Even after the disruption of the last three years, many of the key reportable measures at both GCSE and Post 16 were some of our ‘best ever results’ and a testimony to all the hard-working staff, dedicated students and supportive parents and carers who make up our fabulous learning community.

Many of our Sixth Form students have gained places at some of the most prestigious universities in the world including Imperial, UCL, Queen Marys, and King’s College London to name just a few. Others are starting exciting higher-level apprenticeships with a number of leading global institutions.

As we start the new academic year we look forward to many more celebrations of achievement at all levels. As parents and carers, do encourage your children to complete all their GAP tasks to be able to start the new academic year on a really positive note.

Finally, there has been much in the national press about RAAC and potential failing concrete in schools and other public buildings. I would like to reassure all parents and carers that our Site Manager across the Trust has been very proactive in responding to the situation earlier this year. All three schools in the Multi Academy Trust have been inspected at the start of the summer holidays by surveyors appointed by Hertfordshire County Council and we do not have any confirmed RAAC in our buildings.
