Excitement has surrounded Corby Technical School today as students celebrated their GCSE results and look forward to their further education plans.
The students were among the first group to complete exams since the disruption caused by Covid-19.
Angela Reynolds, Principal at Corby Technical School, said: “I am so proud of each of our students today who have achieved excellent results that are thoroughly deserved. The accomplishments seen today are a real tribute to the incredible work ethic and drive shown across the year group. Celebrations were absolutely in order which I was thrilled to be a part of this morning.
“Students have faced great obstacles over the last few years and have demonstrated resilience and perseverance throughout their studies despite the turbulence. It is always a pleasure to be part of our student’s journeys as we witness them moving on.”
Many students will be returning to the school’s Sixth Form, whereas some students have secured apprenticeships in finance, social media, and Engineering. Others have accepted places at various colleges to study Drama, Graphic Design, Law and Criminology, Engineering, and Game Design.
Mrs. Reynolds added: “Maintaining the same upbeat, determined attitude that has been shown will propel our pupils forward as they take the next steps, and there is no doubt they all have the potential for fantastic, successful futures. I look forward to welcoming many students back to the Sixth Form to begin their A-Level studies and work toward their next steps. I am thrilled to see the rest of the students moving a step toward their life ambitions and wish them every success in their careers.
“I am grateful to our teachers and school staff who have supported and motivated our students throughout, and a massive thank you to parents and carers for their consistent encouragement.
“Most importantly, thank you to all our students for allowing us to be part of their journey. We look forward to having you back at Corby Technical School where you can share your successes and inspire our future school leavers.”
“Every teacher and educational staff have enjoyed getting to know our Year 11 and will always be really proud of them.”
The Corby Technical School Sixth Form provision has been extensively expanded to accommodate a greater range of options for its students this coming academic year.
