Staff and students at Bourne Community College are once again delighted with the academic achievements of their 132 Year 11 students, who have done themselves proud in their commitment, effort and attitude over the past two years.
A total of 46 per cent of them achieved 5 or more A*-C grades including English and Maths, with 74 per cent of all the grades being A*-C.
17 per cent of our students achieved 3+ A/A* grades and an impressive 14 per cent of all grades achieved were A/A*. Almost every student (92 per cent) achieved at least 1 A*-C grade.
The traditionally high English results (69 per cent A*-C) have been maintained whilst the Maths results (56 per cent A*-C) show their third successive year of improvement, as have the geography and drama results. As an International School we are thrilled to have sustained our outstanding Modern Foreign Language results in French, Spanish and German, which bucks the national trend.
Having introduced BTEC Engineering to the curriculum for some students they achieved an impressive 100 per cent pass rate.
Assistant Head Ranjit Verghese acknowledged the sustained hard work and commitment from BCC students and their teachers in achieving these results and congratulated all the students, commenting on how proud all the staff are of the many students who exceeded their personal GCSE targets.
BCC’s 2012 ‘High Flyers’ include: Liam Lancaster (15 A/A*), Tyler Howells (13 A/A*), Emma Castle (12 A/A*), Mattias Chambers (ten A/A*), Charlotte Newton (ten A/A*), Ian Bamforth (nine A/A*), Catherine Hoolihan (nine A/A*), Rumena Islam (nine A/A*), Adrian Langford (nine A/A*).
