Students pass with Distinction at boomsatsuma


August 10th 2021, has been an uplifting results day for boomsatsuma students, with all achieving a qualification, and an impressive 54% awarded a Distinction, or higher, opening up fantastic future possibilities for them in Bristol’s creative sector.


Mark Curtis, boomsatsuma co-founder, states:

“These students have come through challenging Covid-19 pandemic journeys over the past two years, so this is an important boost for them all. They all have these great platforms, that will help them move on to the next stages of their lives, be-it staying in education or into employment. What’s enormous, is that they leave with so much more than qualifications, in terms of work-place experiences, self-confidence and wider life-skills.”

The 2021 results show consistent performance across boomsatsuma’s creative media and acting courses, extending back over the past three years. boomsatsuma managed new teaching and student support processes, to sustain quality education and mentoring, to achieve these excellent outcomes for the next generation of creative professionals.


Stuart Woods, boomsatsuma co-founder adds:

“These are fantastic grades, with some courses achieving 90% D*. We are all delighted for the students. Having expanded our student and staff numbers, we maintained a high quality of education, adapting to online remote learning and nurturing students to these excellent outcomes. There was a lot of effort invested by students and staff this year working in unusual conditions, putting on plays, making films, creating photography exhibitions, all of which highlighted the breadth of young talent coming through.”
