Summer of success

Bromsgrove School has once again had a successful summer of exam results.

Overall, more than a quarter of all students achieved the equivalent of an A* and just over three-fifths achieved at least an A grade. The A*- B percentage achieved is 80 per cent.  

Six pupils achieved more than five A grades, and 20 achieved four or more A grades, with 43 gaining at least three A grades. Notable among these is Oscar Chou with four A*s and a further three A grades.

Oscar will read Medicine at the University of Hong Kong.

Bromsgrove offers a wider choice than just A levels. A large number of pupils study for the International Baccalaureate Diploma, and these results, published in July, were once again superb with an average score of 39.1 points, the school’s highest ever IB average. 

49 per cent of the 43 candidates achieving 40 points or above and in Higher Level subjects, 45 per cent of entries scored a 7 (equivalent to an A* at A level), whilst the equivalent A*/A rate was 88 per cent.  

A number of students also have the opportunity to sit BTEC qualifications. Between them, 62 entrants achieved 52 Distinction* grades (equivalent to a grade A at A level) with a further 8 Distinctions.

All students holding offers from Oxbridge met their offers, while the destinations of leavers include an impressive list of top world and UK universities with pupils winning scholarships to NYU in Abu Dhabi (Academic Scholarship), the University of British Columbia (International Leader of Tomorrow Award) and the University of Mount Olive (International Scholarship).
