“We are extremely proud of the achievements of our pupils this year”
The GCSE Class of 2020 have excelled themselves with quite outstanding achievements. This has no doubt been a very difficult time for Year 11 students, and not the way in which they would have like to end their time at Bede Academy but each and every one of them has made academy staff proud and should themselves be proud of their own achievements. Of course, for many this is not the end and we are excited to be inviting a record number of students back to study A levels and BTEC qualifications in September.
It is only right that certain individuals who have excelled are recognised. Andrew Cooke has been awarded eight Grade 9’s and two grade 8’s. Lewis Johnson six grade 9’s, three grade 8’s and one grade 7 and Jessica Bate four grade 9’s, four grade 8’s and two grade 7’s. Quite exceptional achievements at “the best of times” never mind during turmoil in their lives that none of us have experienced before.

Other students achieving top grades were Jason Goodfellow, Abbie Ross, Amy Leddy, Ethan Alia, Ben Anderson, Amelia Elliott, Jasmin Armitage, Reuben Cook and Josie Todd.
Natalia Flis, Andrew Mather and Reanna Willis also deserve individual recognition for the amazing progress they have made over the last few years.
Andrew Thelwell, Principal (Secondary), said: “Our students should feel extremely proud of their achievements and for many they really do reflect the hard work that they put into their studies over their time at the academy.
“Structured support as a result of our Revision 2020 programme seems to have helped our students to focus on individual learning techniques suited to their own particular skills and to take responsibility for their own progress.”
“It is fantastic to see such an excellent and well-deserved set of results. I am confident the class of 2020 are in a strong position to achieve their best in Further Education whether that be in Bede Academy Sixth Form or at College. I am also encouraged by those students who have gained employment or an apprenticeship.”
“We will miss the class of 2020 and wish them all well for their future endeavours. We look forward to celebrating their success with them when we are in a position to do so.”
