Bridgewater students lead by example with A level success

10th August 2021

In what has been another challenging year for students across the country, the determination and application of Sixth Form students at the Worsley-based independent school saw them achieve a fantastic pass rate for their A level courses, with 85% of all grades scoring an A*, A or B.

Despite the disruptions presented by the reorganisation of public examinations and the period of rigorous assessment subsequently required, the Class of 2021 set their sights on the task ahead and, motivated to achieve their very best, delivered an outstanding body of work with which to support the Teacher Assessed Grades (TAGs) required for 2021.

Sharon Minta, Head of Sixth Form at Bridgewater School commented: “The resilience and courage demonstrated by this group of young individuals has been wonderful to see. The purpose and dedication that they have applied to their studies is testament to their character and, whilst the TAGs required an immense amount of work for both students and teachers, I am thrilled that their efforts have been justly rewarded.”

Success was enjoyed across a wide array of A level subjects reflecting the school’s open and inclusive approach, with students now going forward to study degree courses including History, Radiography, Politics and Equine Management – a range as diverse and individual as they are.

Headmistress, Judy Nairn added: “For these young people, their time in Sixth Form has coincided with a global pandemic, the impact of which will be seen in education and society for many years to come. And yet, the qualities and skills demonstrated by this cohort of students leads me to believe that their next steps into university life and beyond will be taken with confidence and maturity.

“As a relatively small year group, we have been especially proud of the way in which this group of young individuals have supported each other through all the challenges they have continued to face. They have all left their own unique mark on our school and set a wonderful example for their fellow students.”
