6th Form End of Term - Easter 2018
23rd March 2018
Bridlington School breaks up for Easter at 2.45 p.m. on Friday 23rd March and re-opens at 8.25 a.m. on Monday 9th April. We do not have a training day on Monday. All Sixth Form students should report to the library at 8.30am please.
In order to ensure the safety of our students at the start and end of the school day, I would like to take this opportunity to ask you to use the ‘pull in’ on Bessingby Road to drop off or collect your child by car rather than actually driving into school.
I’m delighted to announce that Bridlington School has been recognised nationally for its excellent results in 2017 based on data from the Department of Education and Ofsted, analysed by SSAT (the Schools, Students and Teachers network). Bridlington School was found to be among the best performing secondary schools in the country, receiving an award for being in the top 10% of schools nationally for progress. It is a fantastic achievement that Bridlington School has won this award now for the fifth consecutive year. Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said:
“I am delighted that Bridlington School has won an Educational Outcomes Award. This recognises an important aspect of the schools’ work, but, as we know, there is much more to recognise in a good school like Bridlington School. SSAT is pleased to recognise the quality of leadership and the hard work of all staff to ensure the success of every child. A big thank you and well done to pupils, parents, staff and governors.”
We have also received recognition of Outstanding Progress in our 2017 A Level performance where we achieved an ALPS score of 3, this puts our performance in the top 25% of schools in the UK. What a fantastic achievement for our 6th form students, a result well worth celebrating.
Keep up the good work!
These fantastic results give your children the best life chances and enable them to compete not only locally but nationally. It is only possible to achieve such outcomes by ensuring your child attends school regularly.
Evidence shows that there is a clear link between poor attendance and poor academic achievement. Sixth Form attendance is reviewed weekly, if you are at all concerned about your child’s attendance, please contact the Head of Year who will be happy to help.
Thank you for your ongoing support that has helped us to achieve such successes, your commitment and help as parents/carers have played a massive part in these achievements. We look forward to welcoming our students back at 8.25 a.m. on Monday 9th April.
Have a lovely Easter holiday
Mrs K Parker-Randall
