Proud to be Celebrating Fantastic GCSE Results

Following on from a year that saw us being once again graded as a GOOD School by Ofsted and our best 6th Form results ever, plus a national report published last week in the Sunday Times placing Bridlington School as one of the top 20 most successful schools in the country, we are absolutely thrilled with our GCSE results this year.

Our students have once again risen to the challenge meeting the more demanding government benchmark of the new format of GCSEs using the number grading system in English and Maths. They have surpassed all expectations achieving an average of Grade 5 which is a strong pass, equivalent to a high Grade C and low Grade B on the old grading system. I am so proud of Danielle Coverdale, Tia Mainprize and Joseph Raybould who achieved a Grade 9 which is higher than the old A*

We are again delighted with our fantastic performance against the governments progress measure called Progress 8, achieving a score of +0.52. This means that our students have again outperformed students of the same starting point nationally performing on average more than half a grade better.

Again this excellent performance means that our students have every opportunity open to them post 16, with many choosing to stay on and study in our highly successful 6th form.

More importantly our students can be proud of a hard earned set of results that will springboard them to bright futures clearly being able to compete on a local and national level.

I am as ever in awe of the relentless support and commitment of our staff who do everything within their power to challenge, support and inspire our students to reach such aspirational target grades.

As a school we believe in setting aspirational targets. We set our targets to be in line with the best 5% performance in the country using Fischer Family Trust 5. Our target for 5A*-C or equivalent was 65% which was achieved. I am ecstatic that our staff, students, parents and carers worked together in partnership to push really hard in order to achieve this. It just shows that if you really challenge yourself you can achieve more than you ever thought possible.
