As the examination season for 2018 draws to its final conclusion and we are days away from the beginning of the academic year, here at the college, we are immensely proud of all that our community of learners have achieved.
At GCSE the students have attained the best results in the history of the College, with 62% achieving top grades in English and mathematics. Whilst again, the students in our outstanding sixth form, produced excellent grades ensuring that they all gained places at university.
However, our greatest success, as I see it, is in the programme of study we provide, where the talents, identity and personality of our students is given the fullest opportunity to develop. Our students and teachers have shown outstanding resilience and sheer determination in the ever evolving world of education.
But in any good educational campus in the country what really matters are those things that cannot be graded and we remain a college that has at its heart the young people we educate.
Congratulations to all the students at Archbishop Beck Catholic College.

Pupils spoke positively about their school. They say that they are valued as individuals, are well supported by staff and would recommend the school to others.
Pupils say that bullying is rare at the school. If there is bullying, pupils know how to report it and are confident that it is dealt with by school staff quickly and effectively.
The school's use of the additional funding for disadvantaged pupils is more effective than was the case previously, because of strengthened leadership in this area.
School leaders work effectively with parents, carers and external agencies and act swiftly when required. Referrals are followed up in a robust manner and record-keeping is good.
School leaders have adopted an internet filtering system, which helps keep pupils secure. Pupils know who to report concerns to and how to do this.
Pupils say that they feel safe and are well looked after. Pupils have a clear understanding of the risks which might affect them and how to keep safe, including in e-safety.
