Pupils are celebrating their record breaking GCSE achievements at Sandwell’s highest performing school. GCSE results revealed today show that Bristnall Hall Academy’s 2019 Year 11 cohort have made outstanding progress in numerous subjects, including both English and Mathematics.
These results demonstrate success for the fifth consecutive year and once again reinforce Bristnall Hall Academy’s outstanding performance. Attainment of the highest grades was particularly impressive, with several pupils achieving Grade 9 and Grade 8 passes in English, Mathematics and other Ebacc subjects. As a ‘SSAT Leading Edge’ school, Bristnall Hall Academy has successfully embedded the new, more challenging GCSE examinations across its entire curriculum offer. This has helped to ensure that students have been highly successful in their studies, regardless of background or ability, making exceptional progress as a result.
Amongst the numerous Bristnall Hall Academy students who are celebrating their success are Ellie Sheward, Callum Esprey, Brayden Birch, Francesca Barker and Lillie-Mae Clewer. These students achieved numerous top grades, positioning them amongst the top performing students nationally.
Mr Kully Uppal, Principal at Bristnall Hall Academy commented: “Students from our academy have achieved another excellent set of results and this success sustains the year on year rapid improvement and high performance at our academy. I am particularly impressed with these exceptional outcomes given the increased level of challenge in GCSE examinations. These outstanding results will enable our students to access exciting opportunities in further education, training and employment within our local region and beyond.”
Mr Vince Green, Executive Principal, commented: “I am delighted to see a record breaking set of GCSE results at Bristnall Hall Academy. We always go into each examination results season expecting students at the academy to make excellent levels of progress. This is testimony to their hard work, and to the dedication of the outstanding team of staff that work there. Congratulations to all of our young people on their achievements.
As someone who has been closely involved with the outcomes Bristnall Hall students have achieved in recent years, I now write to you as the proud Principal of an exceptional academy which is at the heart of bringing about success for all stakeholders and maintaining a feel good factor for all of our community. I look forward to working with all of you as we embark on a journey together, ensuring no one individual is left behind.
The academy continues to go from strength to strength. Whilst other schools and academies often comment on their struggles with recruiting quality, specialist staff, Bristnall Hall has retained and recruited successfully. From this term, we have even more outstanding teachers who will further strengthen our remarkable team. As Principal, I am very fortunate that our academy attracts high calibre staff due to the happy, warm and hard working environment and the reputation of Bristnall Hall Academy as a great place to learn and work in. This year we will continue to focus on developing responsible, highly skilled global citizens who will have a positive impact on our community now and in future years. The academy remains committed to maintaining its strong links already established with charitable organisations, local employers and higher education establishments; these will be developed further to ensure that all students can benefit from these positive partnerships. Bristnall Hall Academy continues to be an inspiring, nurturing and successful educational establishment and we look forward to delivering an outstanding provision for our young people.
All staff and governors at Bristnall Hall Academy are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people.
