Exam Results & Progress

2016 GCSE Results Headlines

I am absolutely delighted with this year’s results which are the best for several years. The results confirm a continued trend of excellent and improving results. Academic performance across subjects remains high and new measures indicate clearly that our students progress at a higher rate than the national average.

This is a wonderful tribute to the extraordinary efforts of the Year Group, and the expert and caring support from their teachers and parents. Behind the headlines there are some truly outstanding individual performances. Parents, staff, and governors and are feeling extremely proud of the Year 11 of 2016!

AS/A2 Results 2016

Yet again, a superb set of results for students at Bournside, with an increase in the average points score per examination entry and a significant increase in the proportion of students achieving a grade C or higher.

I would like to pay tribute to the commitment shown by our students over the past two years, so many of whom have exceeded their expectations and also to parents and staff for their considerable support and encouragement.

I am delighted that Bournside has once again demonstrated that it caters superbly for students of all abilities, across the 33 subjects that we are proud to be able to offer. Moreover, a high level of success with university placements is anticipated over the coming days, with the very large majority of students having met the conditional offer from their respective university.
