Anglian Learning Exam Success
Pupils and staff across Anglian Learning are celebrating the end of the summer exam season – with exceptional results at both GCSE and A Level.
Jonathan Culpin, CEO of Anglian Learning, said: “Our results are fantastic – and show that hard work really does pay off.
“I’d like to congratulate all Anglian Learning pupils on their results and wish them well as they continue their education. I’d also like to thank the teachers and support staff across our schools for their unwavering support, enthusiasm and hard work in helping our pupils achieve their results.”
At Bottisham Village College pupils have again achieved excellent GCSE results, with an overwhelming majority moving to their chosen post-16 placement of choice. With a third of all results being at grade 7-9 (A/A* equivalent) and the average grade being in excess of a “Good” pass, it has been a year to remember for these pupils. Significantly, 86% of pupils achieved a pass in English with 72% of pupils securing a pass in both English and Maths.
Jenny Rankine, Principal of Bottisham Village College, said: “As a truly comprehensive college, I am delighted with the results from all of our pupils. As the grades show, there are success stories throughout the student body and they can be exceptionally proud of their achievements. As we all know, these reformed GCSEs are arduous, taxing and push students to their limits. Very clearly, our students have risen to the challenge and I fully commend them all for their exam success but also their success as people. A huge thank you to parents, governors and staff for all their support and hard work.”

We are very proud of our 2019 cohort and wish them all the best in the future.”

Our students have again shown that they are a match for anyone with some nationally outstanding performances. These include Neelam Solanki who achieved an amazing ten GCSEs all at the ‘super A*’ grade 9 level, and an A* in Further Maths. Marie Vallier, gained six 9s, three 8s and two 7’s and Lihinya and Thevinya Gurugama getting between them 11 9s, 2 8s, 7 7s and 2 A*s.

Pupils are now able to make the all-important decisions as to which course, apprenticeship or training they will be moving onto. We anticipate that many will choose to study at The Oakes College, which has published excellent results for A-levels, with 99.6% of students achieving A*-E grades across a range of academic and applied subjects. All of our sixth form pupils are going on to one of their first-choice destinations at university, a high-quality apprenticeship, or have already secured employment.
