The Headteacher of Abbeywood Community School, Benjamin Dilley stated:

“In what has again been another challenging year for all of our young people, with missed sessions and uncertainty with exams, I am exceptionally proud of our students. They have continued to maintain positive attitudes and shown great resilience. We are incredibly proud of all that they have achieved both academically and socially as they have progressed into outstanding young people. I would also like to thank our committed teaching staff, who have gone above and beyond in providing excellent teaching, support and inspiration for our students. We wish all of our students well and are confident that they are on course to succeed at degree level, in their apprenticeships or employment.”

Abbeywood Community School - Engineering Centre Results

 Congratulations to our Year 13 Engineers who have received their results this morning.  We are immensely proud of their hard work culminating with them receiving their grades today.  Whether they studied single engineering, a double engineering or triple engineering qualification, students have made excellent starts to their careers in STEM.

Some headline outcomes:

  • 58% of Triple Engineers [Extended Diploma] achieved DDD or better (equivalent to AAA at A level)
  • 81% of Triple Engineers achieved at least one D (equivalent to an A at A level) across their triple qualification.
  • 75% of Double Engineers achieved at DD or better (equivalent to AA at A Level).
  • Students are moving on to Degree Apprenticeships at regional engineering companies, craft apprenticeships in Aerospace and studying at Higher Education in a wide range of Engineering disciplines.

Their results are outstanding and we give them our very best wishes for their future.

 “The strong results achieved by Post 16 students across the Trust this year are of particular significance as they have come out of a period of adversity and challenge for learners who missed their GCSE exams and so much face to face teaching because of the global pandemic.  I offer my congratulations to students and wish them all well in their next steps.  Thanks also to all Olympus staff who have supported students to succeed.” 
Olympus CEO, Dave Baker
