I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the class of 2010-15 for the hard work they put into achieving this round of GCSE results.
Throughout the time I have had the good fortune to have known and to work alongside this particular cohort of students, I have been extremely impressed as to how they have applied themselves not only to their studies in the classroom but to many other aspects of Academy life. This was always reflected in how they treated as well as looked after one another all of which culminated in perhaps the best Year 11 Leavers Day I have ever had the good fortune to attend.
Whilst there were many notable successes, students who did particularly well were Neemrit Gill who achieved 10 A grades and 1 B, Ryan Woodrow who achieved 6 A and 5 B grades, Jiaqi Chen who achieved 4 A* 5 A and 2 B grades, Ashley Green who achieved 6 A, 3 B and 1 C grade and Adam Sexton who achieved 2 A*, 5 A and 4 B grades.
I would also like to formally thank my many colleagues who were involved with this year group at some point of their journey through Bexleyheath Academy. The year group, as I know both they and their parents and carers will agree, were most fortunate to have hard working and fully committed teaching and support staff working alongside them each and every day. Not only did this lead to real academic progress, it also led to the forging of some exceptionally strong and mutually respectful working relationships that I'm sure will always be remembered by students and staff alike.
I would like to pay special thanks to Mrs Anita Worboys, Head of Year 11 and Mrs Louise Saunders, Mrs Worboys Assistant lead who worked tirelessly with the year group throughout the five years they were at the Academy. They perhaps more than everybody else helped to support the cohort to get to the point they are at now.
Many of our Year 11 students will now progress into our Sixth Form whilst others will venture off to pastures new be it into other educational establishments, employment or training. Wherever they go I will always remember them and wish them and their families continued success and happiness.
Mr C A Wakefield
