Once again, we are delighted to see the hard work, dedication and commitment of our students leading to excellent results.  A number of students gained four or more grade nines in their results including Lucie C with seven Grade 9s and four Grade 8s at GCSE.  These are fantastic accomplishments, however, there are also a number of students who have achieved well despite circumstances conspiring to throw challenges at them through illness or parental bereavement who have also achieved grades above those that were expected of them.  80% of students have passed both their English and Maths while 43.3% of students gained the academic suite of subjects that make up the Ebacc.

Headteacher, Steven Haycocks, said: "Our staff have worked really hard to provide these students with the knowledge and skills as well as a curiosity and thirst for learning they needed to succeed.  It is especially pleasing to note the increased numbers of our students who are going on to take up competitive apprenticeships at BAE, Leyland Motors, the nuclear industry and more.  Even more important than the qualifications themselves, our students are tasked and equipped to make a positive difference in the world beyond school, taking their Balshavian values with them wherever they go".
