Value Added at GCSE

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

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.

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.

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. To consistently add value across our cohort of pupils demonstrates our ability to work with each pupil individually in the Sixth form.
