GCSE results continue the celebrations at Boston College
Following last week's 100% A-level pass rate, the celebrations continue at Boston College with this year's GCSE results exceeding the national average.
These results showcase the hard work and dedication displayed by the students to gain those all-important grades they did not achieve within secondary education, which now enables them to take the next step within their education.
One of those students who is celebrating today is Laurie Pickwell, 'The amazing support at Boston College has been far and above anywhere else especially in regards to extra support I received due to my dyslexia. I'm really pleased with the grade 8 that I achieved in English, and can't wait to start the University of Exeter to study Politics and Philosophy."
Jo Maher, Boston College Principal said: "Straight off the back of our stunning A-level performance, Boston College is now on track to exceed national averages for the second year running with our recent GCSE results."
Another success story saw Konrad Studzinski gain a grade 4 in maths. Speaking of his results Konrad said: "The lecturers at Boston College are really supportive - they use different learning techniques to suit our own personal learning styles. Gaining my maths GCSE was one of the conditions needed to gain my place at Nottingham Trent University to study Business Management with Marketing in September."
Vicki Locke, Boston College's vice-principal - curriculum and quality said: "I'm delighted with our GCSE results which show the great progress our learners make in improving their English and maths skills during their time with us. This demonstrates the quality of our teaching and learning at the College, and the support learners receive to develop their standards of English and maths. The results learners have secured enable them to be successful in their next steps, whether that be into employment, onto an apprenticeship, or onto further study."
Clive Gibbon, Boston Borough Council's economic development manager said: "It's fantastic, once again within a week to celebrate great results from students at Boston College. It certainly reflects the hard work the students and lecturers are putting in rising to the challenge of a more rigorous and demanding GCSE standard."
