Outstanding GCSE results!

GCSE results day 2021 brought much good news across Acorn and Options schools and was a wonderful chance to celebrate all the hard work of our students, our staff, parents and carers.

Despite the challenges of the pandemic and the disruption caused by Covid-19, we are proud of the resiliency our students have shown during this time and the strength of our staff teams to deliver excellent learning and support consistently. This year’s results reflect this joint effort and we extend congratulations to all involved. Results day is a fantastic opportunity to reflect on the big achievements, the qualifications and awards, but it is also an opportunity to reflect on all the many other ways that students have developed during their time with us, and the huge progress they have made to support them with their next steps.
