Beaufort Academy goes from strength to strength

Beaufort Co-operative Academy in Tuffley has again performed strongly in this year’s exam results. As well as some outstanding individual performances, results at GCSE overall stood up well to the new, tougher grading system, producing strong results overall and the best results ever in a number of areas. Notable success was seen in the pass rates in English, maths, science and the visual arts (art and photography). At A level there was similar success, with the best ever results overall and notable results in maths, physics and English Literature in particular. The result of this was that every student who applied for university was able to secure their first choice place, with a number being the first in their family to attend university.

Beaufort’s Principal, David Bishop, said; “I am particularly pleased for the students at both GCSE and A level, who have put in so much effort to produce the results they so richly deserve. My thanks go to all the staff who continue to work tirelessly to ensure that every student gets the best possible deal at Beaufort. We are expanding rapidly and with a £5 million extension project well under way, the future is looking very bright at Beaufort Academy.”
