Boston College celebrates yet another brilliant results day

Another Brilliant Results Day as Boston College’s English and Maths students celebrate after receiving their well-deserved GCSE results.

After another uncertain year of working through a global pandemic, students demonstrated their hard work and determination with an overall 99% GCSE pass rate and the number of higher grades well above the national average, with an additional increase in those graded 7-9 from previous years’ results.

One of those students celebrating today is, Vaida Kiznyte, who gained a grade 7 in English. Speaking of her result Vaida said, “I am very pleased after receiving my grade 7 in GCSE English. My plan now is study Computing (Digital Technologies) or make further progression within my career. I am truly satisfied with my result as at times it was hard to motivate myself throughout the pandemic. However, my lecturers were very supportive and helpful at all times, and I am pleased with the flexibility of Boston College – there really is an option for everyone.”

These results have been thoroughly earned through determination and perseverance as many learners study their GCSEs alongside a core subject. However, it is not just those learners aged 16-18 who are celebrating today, but many adult learners, who have chosen to study their GCSEs to progress in their career or onto higher education.

Vicki Locke, Deputy Principal said, “This year has been another challenging year for our learners studying their GCSEs, with the much of their learning being delivered online amidst the disruption caused by the pandemic. We are very proud of our learners’ results which have been achieved by them demonstrating high work standards and progression. It is especially pleasing to see so many learners achieve the higher grades which prepares them so well for their next steps in education or employment.”

Places are still available on GCSE courses for September, as well as other courses at Boston College. To view our upcoming information and enrolment event dates please visit the Open Events page.
