Results 2019

Against the backdrop of tougher national standards in both A Level and GCSE examinations this year, Bromsgrove School has been delighted to celebrate some of the best academic results in its long history.

GCSE 2023

- At GCSE, there were 190 candidates; half of all the GCSE grades achieved were 8 and 9: this is the highest proporation of top grades achieved by a Bromsgrove cohort in which results were based on examinations.

- 65% of all GCSE entries were awarded at least 7 points.

- The most common grade achieved was a grade 9. 

Sixth Form 2023

In the Upper Sixth year group, 221 candidates took a mixture of IB, A levels and BTEC qualifications.

A Level and BTEC 2023

A level and BTEC results saw all students passing their A Levels with an A*- C rate at 90% was amongst the very highest proportion that we have ever seen at Bromsgrove. Three quarters of all grades awarded were A* to B.

When combined, this Upper Sixth cohort of 210 student leavers took 681 ‘main’ subject qualifications - almost a quarter of all qualifications were graded A* or equivalent and over half achieved at least an A grade.

International Baccalaureate 2023

International Baccalaureate students achieved excellent results. Bromsgrove School’s IB average is 38.0 points (with the UK average at 34.67 and we surpass the global average of 30.24 points).

One boarder scored a spectacular and much coveted top score of 45 points – one of only twenty-five students in the UK. A third of the total cohort gained 40 or more points (equivalent to 4 A*s at A level).

International Baccalaureate Top Scorers from previous years

Jolene Koh from Singapore is one of four pupils at Bromsgrove School to achieve the coveted 45 points on IB Results Day 2021, the maximum you can achieve inthe IB Diploma Programme. A boarder from Oakley House, she says that she enjoyed the rigour of the IB as it gave her an abundance of core skills such as critical thinking, organisation and perseverance.

She now goes on to study History at UCL, and after her undergraduate degree, plans to take a Law conversion course or an MBA.


  Nic Bamberger from Germany and a boarder in Housman Hall achieved the maximum score - 45 points - in the IB Diploma Programme. His IB subjects were Math Applications HL, English B HL, Economics HL, German A HL, Physics SL, Business SL.

Of the IB at Bromsgrove, he says, “We had an amazing IB Coordinator who was always willing to listen to my concerns and offered to help. In addition to this, the teachers were well motivated and very fair.”

Over the summer, Nic plans to undertake an internship before studying Data Science and Information Management at UCL.

Lucia Goodwin, a day pupil in Thomas Cookes House, scored the maximum 45 points in her IB Diploma this year.

When asked what the IB means to her, she said it is all about breadth and the academic freedom to explore practically anything that interests you.

Talking about her sixteen years at Bromsgrove School she says, “What flashes in my mind are all the non-academic opportunities I have had here. I remember flying an aeroplane with the RAF section of the CCF; waving my phone-torch in the air at Cultures Connect; everyone screaming on Zoom when we won the Shine Awards’ ‘Best Magazine’ for Two Zero One; getting hopelessly lost on Bronze DofE; waving our banners at Twickenham at the Natwest Schools’ Cup rugby finals and so much more. I am leaving School having received an amazing education, but it is these experiences that have given me confidence, friends and memories that will last long after the structure of biological molecules have faded from my mind.”

Lucia now goes on to study Geography at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge. 

Leonie Sackers from Germany scored 45 points in her IB Diploma in 2021. A boarder in Mary Windsor House, she enjoyed the broad curriculum and holistic approach of the IB.

During her time at Bromsgrove School she says, “I enjoyed the well-prepared lessons, which the teachers taught with enthusiasm, especially when we had to switch to online lessons amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The great care and support by the staff, particularly the IB coordinator, is something I appreciated a lot and it really made a difference. Another factor I loved about Bromsgrove is the vast and excellent sporting opportunities and facilities, as well as the other extracurricular activities that the School has to offer.”

Leonie is spending her summer completing an internship in the corporate finance department at a biotech company. From September, she will go on to study International Business Administration.
