THERE were plenty of smiles when students at Hanham Woods Academy picked up their GCSE results.

THERE were plenty of smiles when students at Hanham Woods Academy picked up their GCSE results.
It had been an anxious time for many of the 16-year-olds, particularly those who needed certain grades to get into the further education establishment or post 16 centre of their choice.
Among individual success stories was student Abdullah Tabriaz who achieved an impressive one A* and eight As.
He said: “I’m over the moon! I will be going out for a meal with my family to celebrate.”
Here’s what some of the others said:

Louise Hodges, from Hanham

I worked really hard for the exams and it’s paid off. I’ve achieved three As, four Bs and three Cs. I will be going to St Brendan’s to study A-levels in maths, physics, biology and politics.

Rachel Williams, from Hanham

I revised and worked hard but I didn’t expect to get what I did - two A*s,  five As and two Bs. I’m shocked as I thought I would get all Bs. I’m going to study A’levels in chemistry, geography and art at St Brendan’s.

Bethany Drew, from Hanham

I’ve got one A*, four As and four Bs. I worked very hard for this. I thought I did well after I finished the exams well but more recently I started to doubt myself.  I’m going to St Brendan’s to take A-levels in Spanish, English language, psychology and BTEC biology

I’m really happy with one A*, six As and four Bs. It’s nice to have the weight off my shoulders. I was struggling to relax waiting for my results I’m going to Post 16 at CLF to take physics, chemistry, maths and further maths.

I got six Cs and one B and I’m really happy because I’ve got the grades I needed to get into Filton SGS to study sports journalism.     Matthew Daley, from Hanham

Principal is smiling too!

Principal Steve KnellerStudents have been rewarded for all their hard work and dedication. To see so many happy smiling faces on results day made me feel quite emotional and to know we had provided an education whereby students had developed the knowledge, understanding and skills to access their next steps made me feel very proud! To hear so many students thanking their teachers for all they had done for them was quite unexpected and showed a real sense of teamwork and togetherness.
