The Bourne Academy, an all ability state-funded secondary Academy sponsored by Canford School, is delighted with how our students have adapted to the challenges of this year.

Mark Avoth, Principal, said ‘This has been an unbelievably tough year for our Year 13’s – they have had so much to endure during the pandemic and we just want to say how extremely proud we are of them. They have proved themselves to be mature, self-motivated individuals who have worked tirelessly to ensure the best possible future outcomes for themselves. Our teachers also deserve huge credit for the enormous amount of work they have put into implementing another new system. My thanks to them for ensuring that our students have the best and fairest outcomes this year.’
Mr Dean Taafe, Head of Sixth Form, said ‘I don’t think anyone could argue that the experience of the 2021 cohort has been very different from many that have gone before. The pandemic has provided a unique set of educational challenges that I wholeheartedly believe our students have risen to, showing a level of maturity, independence and reliance that will stand them in good stead for the future. They have developed new skills enabling them to adapt to a constantly evolving challenge and I am extremely proud of them all.’
