The Bromfords School and Sixth Form College GCSE results – August 2018

Following the jubilation of last week’s excellent A level results, it is now the turn of our Year 11 students to celebrate this year`s achievements.

This year students in England saw most of their qualifications awarded under the government’s new 9-1 grading system. The 9-1 grades were introduced for the first time last year in maths, English language and English literature, and this year they were applied to results in 20 additional reformed subjects. As well as the new grading system students and staff faced new exams with increased content and demand, alongside the removal of coursework.

Whilst we are very proud of the achievements of all of our students, within these results there are some exceptional individual performances that deserve particular mention.  Leading the way with several top grades: Jacob Stevens five grade 9s, three grade 8s, one grade 7 and one grade 6; Scott Pinchback four grade 9s, three grade 8s one grade 7, one grade 6 and one grade A; Liam Brosnan three grade 9s, four grade 8s and three grade 7s; Alex Gear one grade 9, six grade 8s, two grade 7s; Madison Thomas one grade 9 seven grade 7s and one grade 6.

Many of our students will be re-joining us in the Sixth Form in the weeks ahead and we look forward to continuing to support them through their studies. Others will leave to pursue alternative courses and opportunities and they do so with our best wishes and our thanks for their contribution to the school over the last five years.”

Headteacher, Martin Coulson, commented:

“It gives me huge pleasure to congratulate all of our students on their fantastic achievements.  The success of our students is down to their hard work, resilience and family support – we are extremely proud of them all.  These results are also a tribute to the teachers at The Bromfords School and Sixth Form College who, year after year, give huge amounts of additional time, support and guidance whenever it is needed.  I feel very privileged to be leading this school community.”

As a school, we are proud of our track record of supporting so many of our students to make better than expected progress year on year.  I am so pleased that so many students at GCSE and A level can now pursue their first choices into University, Sixth Form, apprenticeships or employment.”
