Girls U14 Football Tournament

On Wednesday 3rd October, Brookvale Groby hosted the Hinckley and Bosworth U14 Girls Central Venue League (CVL).

Brookvale Groby played back-to-back games beating both Hastings High School 5 – 1 and Market Bosworth 2 – 0!

The girls performed brilliantly, securing a place in the county cup.

For the Year 9’s girls in the team, this could start the journey of winning their third consecutive county cup!

I would like to express our warmest congratulations to our GCSE students who have received their results today following the reform to all qualifications. Against a backdrop of unprecedented change and much tougher exams in across almost all GCSE and Level 2 courses our students have done extremely well.

It is hard to draw comparisons between the year groups but these results reflect a great deal of hard work by students and the staff who work with them. As a campus we have challenged our Year 11 students to work even harder because of the unknown nature of the new exams. We are thrilled to see that the hard work and determination has paid off.

Due to a problem with the exam board and the publication of some of the GCSE English Language results we are not able to bring you the normal information about our highest performing students. We will aim to publish this information in the next few days once the exam board confirms the results.

Thank you to parents and carers for their unwavering support during the busy revision and exam period.  Your family support is absolutely central to the students doing so well; these are your grades too!

My thanks and appreciation goes out to our staff who make it possible for the students to achieve these grades from the moment they start on campus in Year 7.

For any students who are staying to continue their studies at Post 16 please remember that the details for signing on have been sent out to you prior to the summer holiday. If you are unsure about what you are doing please contact the Post 16 team; post16@brookvalegroby.com  Staff will be on campus from Tuesday 28 August and Post 16 sign on day is Wednesday 29 August 2018, 9.30am – 11.30am. Year 12 studies will commence on Friday 31 August at 8.40am and have their photos taken during period 3.

A Level students at the Brookvale Groby Learning Campus have celebrated some excellent results this morning. During Year 12 and 13 students have studied a mixture of the brand new, much more rigorous, A Levels and Level 3 Vocational courses. The outcomes from this advanced level of study reflect the extraordinary effort and hard work of our students during the last two years.

There were some exceptional individual outcomes in this year’s set of results as well as many students who have made excellent progress over the last two years since taking their GCSEs.

Click here to see some of our students receiving their results this morning.

A huge congratulation goes out to our students and we wish them well in the next chapter of their lives. Many of them are off to university with some going straight into employment and further training. In fact some of our hard working young people have taken time off work from their new careers to join us this morning for result collection and celebration with their peers and staff.

I would like to thank the parents for their endless support throughout their child’s education. Thank you also to our hard working and dedicated team of staff who make the achievements of our young people possible during a period of such dramatic change.

Well done and good luck to our Year 13 students from the Class of 2018.

3M Young Innovators Challenge

The three teams that were part of the final for the 3M Young Innovators Challenge have had their presentation evening on Friday 15th June at Loughborough College with Nicky Morgan, Loughborough MP presenting the awards.

The pupils, ranging from Year 7-10, had worked extremely hard to dominate the challenge’s final lineup.

We are pleased to announce that the Space-Tech team, comprising Amber King (Year 10), Ewan Pantling (Year 10), Jess Penlington (Year 9) and Jack Mosley (Year 9) were the overall winners! 

They each won £50 worth of vouchers and £750 of vouchers for school to spend on other STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) activities!

The other two teams were also highly commended for their exceptional work and bagged themselves £25 of vouchers each.

Congratulations to Team Lightbringers (Poppy Maynard-Smith of Year 9 and Katie Carvin and Charlotte Penlington – both of Year 7) and Big Ben Bosses (Amelie Golesworthy and Ethan Pantling of Year 10 and Isaac Mwenya and Abbie Palmer of Year 7) for achieving such excellent results!

The competition has been really exciting to be part of this year and our three teams have developed a close, but friendly, rivalry (thanks in no small part to the number of siblings across the teams!)

We now look forward to the chance to defend our trophy in 2019!

‘We are all stars’

Students in KS3 (and some from KS4) were asked to produce a small star artwork that could be decorated in any way they choose using any art medium. Just under 400 stars have been submitted and they all form part of this amazing collage pictured below!  We love the variety of ideas and approaches seen in each small but significant square and we would like to thank each and every student for taking part.  Each student has played a small but vital part in making something great – a bit like in our school really!

Year 8 Girls Rounders Team

Our Year 8 Girls rounders team came second in the Hinckley and Bosworth tournament yesterday, losing by just half a point to The Market Bosworth School in the finals.

Well done girls – great effort!
