A-level Press Statement 2017

Mrs Swales, Principal at Guilsborough Academy, said that she could not be more proud of her Year 13 students.  Not only have they achieved an excellent set of academic results, but they have also gained places at a wide range of universities and high quality apprenticeships.  She said also: “Our students are a credit to themselves, the school and their parents.  They have worked extremely hard at their studies whilst being involved in the wider school initiatives leading as excellent role models to our younger students”.

As a school Guilsborough continues, year on year, to achieve excellent results overall, with 49% of all grades at A*-B and 79% at A*-C this year.  “This is due also to our staff and parents/carers working in close partnership to enable our students to have the best possible support which has really paid off,” said Mrs Swales.

Miss Nunley, Head of 6th Form added, “Whilst the school is proud of all our students a particular mention goes to those who achieved all A*/A grades: Izzy Van Besouw, George Fairbrother, Anna Scullion, Isaac Watson, Milly Munro and Rebecca Wilson.  Furthermore, Rebekah Curran, Perri Dando, Molly Jarvis, Charly Kelly, Harry Thorpe and Daisy Pierce must be mentioned as they significantly exceeded their target grades in all their subject areas”. 

Well done and good luck for the future to all our Year 13 students, please come back and visit your Guilsborough Family to let us know about your future successes.

Purple Bow Day

2017 02 10 16 49 37

This week (week beginning 6 February) has been Safer Internet Day and has also been used to promote the Academy's own initiative, Purple Bow Day, led by Year 11 students, to promote support for Cyberbullying.


On Monday 6 February, Chief Inspector Lara Alexander-Lloyd and Shaun Johnson from the Arson Task Force led an assembly with Year 9 to promote safe use of the Internet and promote Purple Bow Day within our school. They  celebrated a group of our students, now in Year 11, who won the County Schools Challenge with their project that sought to raise awareness of Cyberbullying through Purple Bow Day.



On Tuesday 7 February, Safer Internet Day,  students came to school in non-uniform. Each student paid £1 and received a purple bow and an information card. Students wore the bow on their clothing.

All this week assemblies have been run by Mr Harvey, Mr Grimsey, and the two Year 11 students who won the County School Challenge, to promote internet safety.
