It has been another strong year for Post-16 outcomes at Bradley Stoke Community School (BSCS). A-level students have averaged 32 points (grade C), which the school says is slightly above the results for the last two years.
Forty-two percent of all grades awarded at A-level were A*-B (51 percent last year) and there was a 99.5 percent overall pass rate.
Vocational results were outstanding again with 78 percent of grades awarded being Distinction* or Distinction (72 percent last year). The average grade achieved was a high Distinction.
This year’s results included some fantastic individual performances (see below). Star performers include Sophie Deliot, Holly Macdonald, Erin Pruett, Chloe Lorenzi and Neave Spikings.
Sophie Deliot achieved an A* in Geography and As in Mathematics and Psychology and will be studying Geography at Durham University.
Holly Macdonald achieved an A* in Accounting and As in English Language and Business Studies. Holly has been offered a place on the School Leaver Programme with Price Waterhouse Cooper as a Business Consultant.
Erin Pruett achieved an A* in Geography, an A in English Literature and a B in Physical Education and she has a place to study Geography and Sport Science at Loughborough University.
Chloe Lorenzi achieved As in French and Textiles and a B in Chemistry and she has secured a place to study Fashion Design at the University of Leeds.
Neave Spikings achieved a Distinction* in Music Technology BTEC, an A in Computer Science and a B in Mathematics. Neave will be studying Film and Television Production at the University of York.
Year 12 AS-level students also produced some excellent results in what the school described as a “year of change”, which saw a mixture of ‘reformed’ and ‘legacy’ examinations being sat.
Headteacher Steve Moir commented:
“We are delighted with another excellent set of exam results for our Post-16 students. All of our students who applied to universities have secured their places, with over 90 percent getting their first choice. These include both Russell Group universities and Oxford University and we are really pleased to see so many secure their next steps in their education. Our students studying vocational qualifications particularly excelled, with over 78 percent of them achieving the highest two grades. We are very proud of all of our Post-16 students who have been so well supported by our hard working staff.”
Across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) reported “stable” outcomes at A-level, with the proportion of A*-A grades declining marginally by 0.1 percentage points to 25.8 percent and the pass rate (A*-E) unchanged at 98.1 percent.
