GCSE Results

GCSE results were exceptional, our Year 11 pupils went beyond the record breaking performance of last year, achieving an extraordinary set of grades with 98% achieving a pass and 38% gaining grades 9-7. All core subjects had an over 95% pass rate with English, English Literature, Further Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, French, German, Russian, Art, Photography, Resistant Materials, Drama, Computer Science and Music all achieving an 100% pass rate. BCS has a non-selective entry so for the pupils to achieve as they did and break every School record along the way is quite something. We are thoroughly proud of all our pupils’ and recognise the considerable effort and perseverance they demonstrated to gain the grades they did.

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 88% of students achieving grades A*-C and 41% achieving A*-A. Our overall pass rate this year was 100%. Additionally 100% of our students gained a place on their chosen university course which is a remarkable achievement for the outgoing Year 13.

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.
