The 2020 GCSE results at Bradley Stoke Community School are reported to be “broadly in line” with last year’s outcomes, with 85 percent of students achieving a grade 4 or above in both English and maths (82 percent last year) and 60 percent achieving at least a grade 5 in both subjects (56 percent last year).

With no examinations having been taken this year because of the coronavirus emergency, the grades have been based on teacher assessments following a government decision to abandon Ofqual’s proposed algorithm-based approach.

A school spokesperson said:

“With all of the challenges of coronavirus, the closing of schools and the issues surrounding how results are being awarded, we are delighted that our Year 11 students have managed to shine through and achieve fantastic results and qualifications.”

Headteacher Steve Moir commented:

“We are all incredibly proud of our students’ achievements, particularly with all of the additional challenges they have had to cope with this year with coronavirus. We are delighted that their immense hard work has paid off and we have seen so many students succeed and gain fantastic qualifications.”

Olympus Trust CEO Dave Baker commented:

“BSCS has produced another strong set of results to continue the trend of high achievement from the students. I would like to congratulate the students but also thank the staff as this would not be possible without them being willing to go the extra mile for their students, especially in the context of coronavirus and lockdown. We are confident that the centre-assessed grade process has provided a fair and robust system for accurately identifying the appropriate grades for students. Well done to all involved.”
