Corby Business Academy celebrates GCSE success
Students and staff at Corby Business Academy, part of the Brooke Weston Trust, are celebrating their fantastic summer 2022 GCSE outcomes.
This year saw the return of formal examinations for students taking GCSEs and other Level 2 vocational qualifications. This is the first time that externally verified assessments have been used to award grades since 2019.
The Academy’s Principal, Simon Underwood, said; “Overall, the GCSE and vocational results are extremely pleasing, both for individual students and for the Academy as a whole.
As with the Year 13 students last week, we are so proud of the students’ resilience and efforts during the pandemic. Yet again, it is important that I recognise the fantastic work ethic of students and staff alike. The positive environment and strong professional relationships have really contributed towards these results.
I am very pleased with the progress that these results demonstrate, going further than the national trends.
With our moral purpose being to enhance life and career chances for young people in our community, we are really happy about the students’ achievements. Staff are already looking forward to the next academic year and can’t wait for more student successes in the future.”
