Students at Bradley Stoke Community School (BSCS) have recorded the school’s “best ever” Post-16 examination results.
Seventy-one percent of all grades awarded at A-level were A*-C and 46 percent were A*-B (42 percent last year).
Over 80 percent of the grades awarded for vocational qualifications were at the highest levels of Distinction and Distinction* (78 percent in 2016).
Headteacher Steve Moir said:
“We have seen some wonderful achievement by students, superbly supported by staff at the school.”
“We are proud that students’ progress from their GCSE results to their A-level grades is also significantly positive and the highest the school has ever achieved.”
“As ever, there have been numerous outstanding individual performances, and we are delighted that virtually all students have secured places on higher education courses and apprenticeships at their first choice institutions or employers.”
