GCSE Results

For 2018 GCSE Results, our Headmaster Mr Russell Slatford, said ‘BCS continues to perform well at GCSE and I am very pleased with the results for this group across their subjects. GCSEs have become more challenging this year and these results reflect the hard work and commitment the students have shown. This talented group have contributed widely to the success of BCS over the last few years and I am delighted that so many are continuing their education with us into Year 12’. The future looks very bright indeed for the school with this group at the heart of the BCS Sixth Form’ for the foreseeable future’

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.Value Added at GCSE

 

 

A Level Results

In 2016 and 2017 BCS achieved the best results in the area for a non-selective school, indeed the results were comparable with a local selective school. The results in 2016 were the best in the School’s history and placed BCS in the top 2.5% nationally for value added (see note below).

In 2017 BCS achieved 100% success rate for students gaining a place on one of their chosen courses at University. 2018 has followed a similar trend with 99% getting onto their chosen University course, though we will not know our final added value until a later date.

In the last 3 years a number of students have gained places at top Russell Group universities, into the Royal College of Music, London and into the illustrious Central St Martins, London and the local Univerities of Bournemouth.

Value Added at A level

At the start of Year 12 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 indicate a probable flight path over the 2 years to A level. In short it gives us a prediction of likely outcome. 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.
