Bradley Stoke Community School (BSCS) students are celebrating another impressive set of Post-16 results, with 44 percent of all grades awarded being at A*-A and 59 percent A*-B.
Students from the 2018 cohort are going to a wide range of destinations including university, an apprenticeship or an offer of employment.
Over a quarter of the university offers received by students were from the top-tier Russell Group universities.
Of the students choosing not to progress to university, a number are set to commence apprenticeships with employers such as the Ministry of Defence, MIDAS and GKN Aerospace.
As always, there were some outstanding individual performances, including:
- Joseph Chambers-Graham who achieved 4A*s (maths, further maths, computer science and physics) and will read mathematics and computer science at the University of Oxford
- Emmanuelle Deliot who achieved 3A*s (French, law & psychology) and is leaving to study Chinese and French at the University of Leeds
- Matteo Monaco who achieved 2A*s (maths and physics) and 2As (further maths and chemistry) and will be at Durham University next year studying physics
- Enzo Steenkamp who achieved 1A* (physics) and 2As (maths and chemistry) and is going to complete an engineering degree apprenticeship at Airbus
- Abi Todd who achieved 3As (maths, chemistry and biology) and is going to the University of Bristol to study medicine
- Lauren Thawley who achieved 1A* (art) & 2Dist*s (media and IT) and is pursuing her love of fine art at the University of Worcester
- Chloe Bowden who achieved 3As (history, psychology and law) and will study law at the University of Reading
- Bethany Sell who achieved 3As (history, psychology & drama) and is going to the University of Exeter to study psychology
Individual subject areas that performed particularly strongly this year include:
- Psychology, with 80 percent of grades being at A*-B and 45 percent at A*-A
- Law, with 80 percent of grades being at A*-B
Steve Moir, headteacher at BSCS, reflected:
“The achievements of our students have come as a direct result and reward of their continuous efforts, commitment and resilience. I am exceptionally proud of them all, and would like to thank our committed staff, who have gone above and beyond in providing students with excellent teaching, support and subject knowledge. We are thrilled to see so many of our students progressing to such aspirational destinations and we wish them all every success in the future.”
