Today we said goodbye to our Year 11 students who had their final GCSE exam today.

Alongside the traditional shirt signing by fellow students and staff members, there were a few tears and many hugs.

Mr Woods, Headteacher, said: "We would like to recognise the hard work that they have put in over their five years here at Blackpool Aspire Academy, especially considering the difficulties they faced during the Covid-19 pandemic. We are very proud of our students as they leave us to start the next stage of their journey.

"Of course we will see them again for the Year 11 Prom on the 7th July and then finally on Results Day on the 25th August.

Thank you Year 11 and we wish you all the best!"
