Well Done Class of 2020
20th August 2020
Baysgarth School was once again filled with joy and happiness today as our Year 11 students received their GCSE results. After the ups and downs of the last few weeks the relief was clear for all to see as students opened envelopes to find brilliant result after brilliant result.
Headteacher Richard Briggs said, "It was really important for us to hold a results day as normally as possible. This group of wonderful students have been robbed of the opportunity to sit their exams and to celebrate the end of their school life with a summer Prom, so it was important to us they could all come together to collect their excellent results. Thankfully, the good weather meant we were able to hold the event outside to minimise any risks.
I am very proud of the students and what they have achieved in their five years at Baysgarth. There are no league tables or statistics that are valid this year, so no school can make claims of record-breaking results or best outcomes ever. However, we do know that if they had been allowed to sit their exams they were on track to achieve our highest ever results and solidify our position as the top performing school locally, and achieving higher outcomes than virtually all of the Outstanding schools in the Humber region.
We've missed our students so much and it was great to have the school full of life again today. Our students achieve brilliantly every year and my message to them today was that they are not defined by Covid or lockdown but by their tremendous spirit, empathy, passion, positivity and support for each other that will carry them through the rest of their lives, which I am sure will be successful and happy. They have been a credit to Baysgarth and to themselves and we wish them all the best for the future"
