Fairfax GCSE students praised for hard work

Fairfax’s Year 11 students returned to the academy for the first time since March to collect their GCSE results.

And they were praised for their hard work through ‘difficult’ times.

Deborah Bunn, Head of Academy, said, “It has been an incredibly unusual time for examination groups nationally and, no doubt, a number of students have felt anxious over the last week in particular.

“We are delighted to be able to offer so many of our students pathways in our sixth form after securing strong centre assessed and calculated grades.

“The students’ grades reflect the hard work they have put in since beginning to study for their GCSEs in September 2017.

“As ever, I am incredibly proud of our students’ maturity and resilience throughout these difficult times, and we are very much looking forward to welcoming students into our sixth form. Fairfax staff wish all of our students every success in the future, and we look forward to celebrating with you at a later date, when it is safe to do so.”

The academy offers a broad range of academic and vocational subjects post-16 and anyone interested in joining our sixth form for September 2020 should visit our website to see our curriculum offer and attend our enrolment day on Friday, 21 August from 09:30 to 14:00.

“I am incredibly proud of our students’ maturity and resilience throughout these difficult times, and we are very much looking forward to welcoming students into our sixth form,”
