Leavers’ Destinations

BGS consistently sees its Sixth Form students secure places on the most competitive university courses and the vast majority of those who apply, achieve a place for degree level study in their chosen area.

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.

Of the 126 students who left our Upper Sixth in 2018, 86% continued to higher education in the UK or abroad in the immediate year afterwards. Five students achieved places at Oxford or Cambridge.

Seven students achieved places at medical school, three went on to study dentistry, and one to study veterinary science. One student achieved a place at New York Film Academy, and another followed a degree apprenticeship in law.

Figures provided by UCAS confirm that of BGS’s leavers in 2018:
  • 71% secured a place at an institution of their first choice
  • 74% were accepted by a higher tariff provider, typically Russell Group universities
  • 87% continue with Higher Education in England or abroad


Students from BGS travel far and wide in order to fulfil their aspirations
