What a remarkable day for Brune Park School and the Gosport community!
Year 11 students (lots with parents, family and friends) arrived to school bright and early to open their results envelopes. All of the young people today have a story and all can now move on to their next individual chapters for further study or apprenticeships. For many of the young people the opening of the envelope and receiving their GCSE results reflects hard, hard work, commitment, courage and resilience – many of the youngsters have overcome significant challenges to achieve success and open the door to their next stage of life.
We are immensely proud of each of the students; The printed results tell only a part of the story – the things we cannot measure are evident in who these young people are, who they have become; their humour, their warmth and their support for each other. On this GCSE results day what was felt was the combination of all the factors that make the young people of Brune Park and Gosport so special. Perhaps this is why we had a visit from the BBC – Gosport and its community deserve to be celebrated and recognised! In the words of Sean Killick, the BBC South Today journalist, following multiple conversations and interviews he had with students and parents:’I can see this is a special place’.
Heartfelt congratulations to all of our Year 11s, a huge thank you to parents, families and carers of our school community for your support, and to our awesome and committed staff. We go forward together into our next chapter as a school and as the GFM,* stronger for being a united community, wiser because of our collective efforts, driven because of our shared commitment, belief and pride.
What a day!
