“The awarding bodies have designated Wednesday 26 June 2019 as a ‘contingency day’ for examinations. This is consistent with the qualification regulators’ document Exam system contingency plan: England, Wales and Northern Ireland - https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/exam-system-contingency-plan-england-wales-and-northern-ireland

The designation of a ‘contingency day’ within the common examination timetable is in the event of national or local disruption to examinations. It is part of the awarding bodies’ standard contingency planning for examinations.

Centres must therefore remind candidates that they must remain available until Wednesday 26 June 2019 should an awarding body need to invoke its contingency plan.”

Mark Avoth, Principal, said ‘We are all delighted with our best ever results.  They build on the successes of our 6th Form of the last three years and we are immensely proud of our students.  To achieve these results in a year when A levels have become more challenging is fantastic.  The fact that more and more of our students are now accessing University courses at Russell Group Universities is testament to students, teachers, parents/carers, all working together to raise academic expectations, whether that be in traditional STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths) or Performing and Visual Arts subjects‘

Kelly Franklin, Head of Sixth Form said I am absolutely ecstatic that over 50% of our Year 13 students who have applied to university have secured an offer at their first choice university or better. It is a pleasure to see that all of our leavers are delighted with their achievements and excited about their future plans. These excellent results are testament to all the hard work of the students and staff that have supported our students over the past two years. Every year The Bourne Academy 6th Form exceeds expectation and we are all very excited about the future.
