BRADFORD Grammar School’s (BGS) 123 A Level students are celebrating outstanding successes this year with 17% of all exams awarded A* and 54% A*/A grades.

Headmaster, Simon Hinchliffe, said:

“I’m delighted to congratulate our students on some outstanding results this year; with a 100% pass rate, our results remain exceptionally strong. This is great news for BGS and the wider educational scene in Bradford.

“The shared endeavour of students, working with the support of their families and staff has sustained our first class record in A Level exams enabling the vast majority of our Year 13 leavers to achieve a place at their first choice university”.

Dr Hinchliffe continued:

“Beyond the headlines, we are celebrating the many individual accomplishments that represent a personal success for those students who did themselves justice at all levels of achievement. A life-enhancing education is open to all at BGS with many exciting opportunities outside the classroom in the arts, sport, community projects and various clubs and societies. We care about the whole person at BGS; outstanding exam results deserve to be celebrated, but they are just one part of a much bigger picture.”

BGS, which counts Olympic medallists and Team GB members among its prestigious alumni, is undergoing a £4m investment in its sports provision. The redevelopment will include major upgrades of its cricket, netball, tennis and hockey facilities. The school is expecting to see the works completed by February next year and has already benefited from an enhanced sports curriculum, which has seen the introduction of boys’ hockey and girls’ cricket.

Former pupils of the independent school on Keighley Road, Bradford, include Olympic heroes Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee, artist David Hockney, Denis Healey and actress Georgie Henley.

“Beyond the headlines, we are celebrating the many individual accomplishments that represent a personal success for those students who did themselves justice at all levels of achievement.

We care about the whole person at BGS; outstanding exam results deserve to be celebrated, but they are just one part of a much bigger picture.”
