Staff and students from Wixams Academy are today celebrating their first set of GCSE results, with many excelling despite the challenges of the last two years.

Year 11 students, who sat the first exams since 2019 in May and June, are getting their results today, which will help set their course for the future.

The dedicated staff at Wixams Academy supported their students non-stop to prepare them to take their exams and it’s clear the students have worked hard with the support of families to succeed.

We are proud of every student’s achievements. We congratulate some of those celebrating today here:

Principal, Paul Spyropoulos, said

“These results are the culmination of a 5 year journey for our Founding students and I am immensely proud of each and every one of them. Since opening as new Academy in 2017, we have always supported our students to be their very best and I am pleased to see that we have surpassed many of our challenging targets with these results.

I look forward to welcoming new and existing students into our new sixth form in September and will keenly follow all students’ achievements in the years to come.”

Hywel Jones, Chief Executive of Bedford College Academy Trust, said:

“Congratulations to all our students, many of whom have achieved some outstanding grades. We are so proud of the achievements of all our Wixams Academy students – particularly so given the challenges they have faced over the last two years during the pandemic. It’s a testament to the hard work of the students, the expert support from teachers and the support of all families in the school community. We look forward to our new Sixth Form opening this September and many of our students continuing their education with us and new students joining as the school goes from strength to strength.
