The school reports that this year’s results set a new ‘best ever’ standard, in terms of both progress and attainment.

A number of subject areas have performed exceptionally well this year, with an impressive 82 percent of students achieving a grade 4 or above in both English and maths. English results continue to be a particular strength, with 93 percent of students achieving a grade 4 or above. Maths and science departments continue to thrive; with an impressive 87 percent of students in science and 84 percent in maths achieving a grade 4 or above.

BSCS headteacher Steve Moir commented:

“We are all incredibly proud of our students’ achievements and that their immense hard work has paid off to produce another brilliant year of results.”

“There are so many success stories, not just from the individuals in the spotlight for achieving the top grades, but for every young person who has surpassed their own personal targets and made remarkable progress.”

“This success is also the result of the dedication and commitment from our amazing staff, as well as the parents and families of our young people who do so much to help and support.”

Olympus Academy Trust chief executive officer Dave Baker added:

“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 incredibly challenging budgets.”

Bradley Stoke Community School (BSCS) students are celebrating another excellent set of GCSE results. The results come quick on the heels of the school’s inspection by Ofsted in May, which saw it rated ‘good’ in four of the areas measured and ‘outstanding’ in two.

A number of subject areas have performed exceptionally well – 70 percent of students achieved the government’s Basics measure in English and maths, with 87 percent of students in English achieving grade 4s or above and 72 percent grade 5s and above, both significantly above national averages. Student outcomes in science were excellent too, even with the significantly more challenging new curriculum. Here, 80 percent of students achieved a grade 4 or above and 53 percent were awarded a grade 5 or above, both well above national averages.

BSCS headteacher Steve Moir, commented:

“I’m absolutely thrilled for our students that their immense hard work has paid off to produce another brilliant year of results.”

“There are so many success stories, not just from the individuals in the spotlight for achieving the top grades, but for every young person who has surpassed their own personal targets and made remarkable progress, sometimes in very challenging circumstances.”

“This success is also the result of the dedication of our amazing staff, as well as the parents and families of our young people who do so much to help and support us.”

“Huge congratulations to all concerned. We wish students every success for the future.”
