Posted: 13/08/2021

At GCSE there were one hundred and ninety three candidates and 27% of all entries were awarded the top grade of a 9.

Half of all GCSE grades were an 8 or above and seventy percent of all entries were awarded at least a 7.

In the Upper Sixth year group there were two hundred and twenty five candidates taking a mixture of IB, A levels and BTEC qualifications.

At A level, 89% of all entries were graded A* to B, with 62% at A*/A and 26% of all entries at A*.

In BTEC, 42% of all entries were awarded a Distinction star which is equivalent to an A* at A level.

In the IB Diploma, 69 students secured an average of 40.2. 43 students, just under two-thirds of the total cohort scored 40 or more points. Four students achieved the coveted 45 point maximum whilst three fell just a point shy of this. These 7 students gaining at least 44 points represent a tenth of the total IB cohort for the year.

Our sixth form leavers now head off to a wide range of top universities in the United Kingdom, with seventeen also going to prestigious overseas universities such as Toronto, Bocconi, New York and Leiden.

Headmaster, Peter Clague, paid tribute to the resilience and steady determination of all candidates and their teachers for having persevered through an academic year fraught with disruption. “Despite the intrusion of repeated lockdowns, quarantining and self-isolation, and the challenges of remote online learning, teachers remained professional and pupils focussed and positive. When public examinations were ultimately cancelled for the second year in a row, the School again applied the utmost rigour in assessing pupil performance honestly and accurately. That this year’s results are in line with Bromsgrove’s traditional averages is testimony to the integrity of that process.”

Bromsgrove School is a co-educational, independent school.
