Terrifically successful at A and AS Levels, BGS is recognised as having the highest average university admission points per student of any school in West Yorkshire.

In 2018 123 A Level students celebrated outstanding success with 17% of all exams awarded A* and 54% A*/A grades.

We are very proud of how successfully and smoothly run our UCAS application process is at the School, with a comprehensive programme of important Higher Education events firmly embedded within Sixth Form life.

One of our central aims in the Sixth Form is to help each student realise their ambition of securing a place on the most appropriate course and at the best possible university for them.

We seek to give accurate and realistic advice regarding students’ university prospects in light of their Sixth Form experience and predicted grades, and remain fully committed to supporting them through the application process.

Our students consistently secure places on the most competitive university courses, at institutions with rigorous entry requirements. 2018 was no exception.
