Learning Partnership West School is delighted to announce record breaking GCSE outcomes once again in 2020!

20th August 2020

In a year like no other, our staff and students have risen to the challenge of ensuring that every young person, regardless of circumstance or background can achieve their potential and progress successfully into further education.

For the first time in the school’s history we achieved a 100% pass rate in all subjects, including record high GCSE grades and fantastic achievements across a wide range of vocational subjects.

Our mission is to support the city’s most disadvantaged young people and to re-engage them with education. Thanks to the tireless efforts of our dedicated staff team, this is something that we have achieved consistently over a period of years. Our dedication to adopting an attachment and trauma informed approach helps us to work with young people whose needs cannot be met by mainstream providers, and we pride ourselves on offering far more than a traditional curriculum to ensure our learners’ needs are fully met.

Head Teacher, Dan Carter was delighted by the results and reflected on the achievements.

Dan begins “I am absolutely delighted for our learners; each and every one of them has grown, both academically and as an individual during their time with us and they should be incredibly proud of all they have achieved.”

He continues, “These results are a credit to our teachers who have worked tirelessly; never more so than during the past five months when teaching was just one of the many tasks they carried out, including food deliveries, community engagement sessions and, of course, countless Zoom meetings!”

He also adds, “Many of our learners joined us with an extremely negative view of the education system and often, even coaxing them through the door on day one was a genuine success. It gives me great pride to see these same young people leaving us with outcomes that they could not possibly have comprehended even just a short time ago.”

“We are entering a bright new phase for LPW School, with substantial building work taking place at our Bedminster base to ensure our learners have access to the best facilities and now, thanks to the hard work of our dedicated staff team we are wishing farewell to our Year 11 cohort safe in the knowledge that they have the skills and knowledge needed to be successful in their next steps.”

I wish all of our learners well in their further studies and look forward to welcoming them back whenever they wish to say hello!” he ends.
