Bridlington School is once again celebrating outstanding GCSE results and best ever A Level results. For the second year running Bridlington School has obtained the best GCSE progress 8 score in the East Riding Local Authority of 0.71. This puts the school 39th in the country when compared to the performance of all Local Authority maintained schools (total 1114). 44% of all entries were graded at least 5 in English and Maths and over two thirds of the cohort achieved a standard pass in both English and Maths. Results in core subjects were particularly strong. There were many individual successes, and some excellent achievements from students who had faced considerable challenges with the new GCSE reforms. A level results are the best we have ever had and once again our student following Level 3 BTEC courses have obtained an average grade of distinction* which is the highest possible grading.
Kate Parker-Randall, Headteacher, said:
“It is a superb set of results and we are really proud of the efforts of our talented and hardworking students. They’ve clearly made the most of the opportunities they’ve had, and so much of that is down to the skills and professionalism of our dedicated teachers and support staff. I’d like to congratulate everyone at the school for the way in which they’ve risen to the challenge, particularly the introduction of tougher GCSEs in English and Maths. For the second year running, these excellent results are a strong foundation for moving towards becoming an outstanding school, we are immensely proud of all our pupils’ achievements.”
Kate Parker-Randall said “This is not only fantastic news for the school, staff, students and parent/caters who have worked tiredly together to make such achievements possible, but great news for Bridlington as a community. It means that our students are able to compete nationally for the best opportunities. Their hopes, ambitions and dreams are limitless.
