Best ever GCSE results

2017-10-06T15:05:10+00:00 August 24th, 2017|
“Warmest congratulations to our GCSE students who have achieved a terrific set of exam results. Academic success at BGS reflects the positive way in which our students go about their studies, enjoying school, aspiring to laudable ambitions and ultimately doing themselves proud.

Thirty-eight talented students from Bradford Grammar School have each achieved all A* and A graded GCSEs, as the school celebrates another rise in top grades. A record breaking 47% of all GCSEs were awarded A*, an increase on last year’s record A*s.

Success of this kind is not accidental and children do not progress equally well irrespective of the school they attend. The dynamic is right at BGG for encouraging everyone to be the best they can be. Pupils and teachers enjoy excellent relations, strive for excellence and engage actively in the process of teaching and learning. Lessons are lively, designed to challenge and satisfying. There is no ‘one size fits all’ factory-style education at BGS, such an approach does not work. Fundamentally, success at BGS is built upon our shared values and ambitions. We are a cohesive, happy and purposeful community. Achievement is enjoyed by everyone however we define it individually for ourselves.

GCSE headlines at BGS make for cheerful reading but we are also happily aware of the many individual successes that represent a personal accomplishment for those students who realised or even exceeded expectations, irrespective of the grades they obtained. Similarly, the success we are celebrating today represents only one piece of the whole educational package at BGS where a rich and diverse co-curricular programme is characterised by a wealth of opportunities inside and outside of the classroom.

We are delighted for our outgoing Year 11 students and greatly look forward to welcoming them back, alongside new students to BGS, as young women and men into our highly successful Sixth Form.”
