Outstanding Result at GCSE
In 2017, Year 11 students at The Bewdley School and Sixth Form Centre achieved an excellent set of GCSE results. Against a backdrop of significant educational change and a greater emphasis on final exams rather than on going assessment, 76% of Bewdley students achieved a GCSE grade 4 (old C) or above in English and 71% a 4 (old C) or above in Maths. The school is particularly pleased that our English and Maths results are once again above the national average. Students worked very hard for these exams, supported by staff and parents. As in previous years we expect to find further education, training or apprenticeships for all of our Year 11 students, maintaining our impressive record of 0% NEET (Not in Employment, Education or Training).
There have been some truly exceptional individual performances by Year 11 students at The Bewdley School, and special mention should go to Joshua Harry and Maddie Rogers who between them achieved results including the coveted new grade 9 in 4 subjects as well as 4A*s, 6 grade As and one grade 7! Rosie Young achieving not only grade 9 in Maths, but also grade A in Further Maths as well as 4 grade As , one A* and two of the new grade 7s in other subjects. A huge congratulations also to Stephanie Carter and Jake Drew who achieved the equivalent of grade A or better in 8 subjects, Ruth Campbell who secured the equivalent of grade A or better in 6 subjects
These are just a few of the exceptional results that see another year of celebration at The Bewdley School.
Headteacher, Mr David Hadley-Pryce, expressed his pride in the students:
“The Bewdley School aims to prepare students for their life ahead, enabling them to develop their full potential. I am extremely proud that this set of results, the culmination of five years of hard work, will help our students move on to the next stage of their education as highly achieving young people. I would also like to thank my team of staff, as well as our parents, who deserve a huge amount of praise for the commitment and support that they have shown. We are delighted that so many of our students are choosing to move on into our 6th Form. However, whatever path they have chosen to take, we wish every one of our Year 11 students all the very best for the future.”
