GCSE Results

Our Year 11 students have worked exceptionally hard this year to achieve a remarkable and again record-breaking set of examination results, with over 50% of the grades awarded at 9-7, with an overall pass rate of just over 98%.

  2016 2017 2018 2019 2020* 2021*
7+ (A*-A for 2016-2017)   25% 31% 22% 33% 38% 50%
4+ (A*-C for 2016-2017)   87% 84% 80% 93% 98% 98%
2+ (A*-E for 2016-2017)   99% 99% 98% 98% 100% 100%

*No exams were undertaken due to the pandemic. Calculated assessment grades were awarded for each subject; these are the grades BCS believe students would be most likely to have achieved had exams gone ahead, taking into account a range of evidence including, for example, non-exam assessment and mock results. 

Value Added at A level

At the start of Year 10 pupils sit a general IQ test, it’s called a Baseline test and the information is processed by Durham University (http://www.cem.org/). From that test we receive information which indicates a probable flight path over the 2 years to GCSE. In short it gives us a prediction of likely outcome. We are then able to judge how much value the school adds to the academic potential of pupils over the period. In the last 3 year BCS has achieved a value-added score which puts us in the top 30% nationally.


 

A Level Results

This year BCS achieved its highest ever set of A level results with 95% of students achieving grades A*-C and 57% achieving A*-A. Our overall pass rate this year was 100%.

  2016 2017 2018 2019 2020* 2021*
A* 13% 8% 3% 4% 16% 21%

We are then able to judge how much value the school adds to a pupil’s academic potential over the period. Over the past two years, the value we have added to sixth form pupil’s attainment has been measured to be consistently in the top 30% of schools nationally. Notably in the top 2.5% in 2016 and again in 2017. To consistently add value across our cohort of pupils demonstrates our ability to work with each pupil individually in the Sixth Form.
