Shrewsbury Academy celebrating with Year 11 students

Shrewsbury Academy is continuing the great achievements within the Marches Academy Trust with a solid set of GCSE results.

The school is celebrating students being fairly rewarded with strong outcomes for their hard work over the two years. Students have worked incredibly hard this year to provide a strong foundation for their future.

We are delighted for our students; it is a great relief to finally know that students’ and the teaching team’s hard work has been rewarded. We pride ourselves on offering a balance between a pursuit for academic excellence alongside personalised pastoral care with the added complexity of managing this remotely for many of our students.

Our Year 11 students are a credit to the school and the community of Shrewsbury. Today provides an opportunity for the Year 11 students who had had their futures taken out of their hands for 6 months, to make choices and move on with doors to their future now open.

Head of School at Shrewsbury Academy, Julie Johnson added: “This year has been one like no other and I am pleased that the results reflect the support from our specialist staff and the determination from our students. I know our students will go on to great things and I wish them every success for the future. I am pleased that we have been able to support them on that journey as part of our school community. This year has shown how we can adapt our teaching and learning to be remote whilst maintaining our support and ensuring our students are striving for success”.

Previous Headteacher, Jon Arnold has commented: “I am absolutely delighted for the students at Shrewsbury Academy who have achieved some fabulous results this year. This is a real credit to their hard work, the tremendous support from their families and the excellent staff at the school who continually go the extra mile to provide expertise and inspiration. I wish everyone well for the future.”

The Open Evening will take place on 7th October 2020 which prospective parents and the community are invited to. Miss Johnson will showcase the school facilities and introduce the team that worked hard to make these results happen. More information can be found on our website shrewsburyacademy.co.uk.
