GCSE – 2021

Students rewarded for their hard work and resilience

We are celebrating with our students today who have been fairly rewarded with strong outcomes following a year of uncertainty and a mix of face to face and remote learning. They have worked incredibly hard with staff this year to provide a strong foundation for their future.

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.

We are on an exciting journey at the school and our Year 11 community have been a credit to the school and the town of Shrewsbury. Their outcomes show that even during a difficult year, their determination and resilience really pays off.

Head of School at Shrewsbury Academy, Julie Johnson added: “We have worked hard to ensure any remote learning has been a smooth transition from face to face learning and our students have adapted extremely well. I am delighted for them all, they have worked hard and all been fairly rewarded with today’s results. I know our students will go on to great things and I am proud to have supported them on this journey. Since joining The Marches Academy Trust, the school has gone from strength to strength and we continue to strive for success ensuring our students remain at the centre of everything we do.”

The Open Evening will take place on 7th October 2021 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.
