Staff, students and parents were celebrating again this week as Bellerive's Y11 class of 2021 received their GCSE results. After the trials and tribulations of multiple lockdowns, remote learning and the ongoing challenges of the pandemic, the excellent results achieved by so many students were all the more impressive.


The college were pleased to see improvements in the number of students achieving a strong pass in maths and English.  Equally impressive was the increased number of students achieving passes in the English Baccalaureate group of academic subjects. Almost half of its students achieved one grade at 7 or above with an impressive number of students achieving nine grades at 7 or above in all subjects.  Particular mention goes to Millie T who achieved a grade 9 in all her GCSE subjects. Students entered for vocational BTEC subjects also scored well in terms of the number achieving merits and above.


Headteacher, Mrs Howlett said: “We are very proud of all of our Year 11 students, many of whom coped with great personal challenges these past 18 months and who have achieved such impressive results this summer. They have shown great courage, perseverance and resilience.


“Their formation as young women in the FCJ tradition will give them the values and character

needed to succeed in whatever the future holds for them. Their success is a testament to the hard work and support provided by their teachers and the encouragement of their parents who, this year above all others, played a major role in helping their children to achieve these results.”
