2018 GCSE Results Success For Bridgewater Pupils

2018 GCSE results

Despite more demanding examination assessments and a new 9-1 numerical grading system, 2018 has seen continued results success for our pupils at Bridgewater School. GCSE students delighted in a 94% pass rate, surpassing the national average by a staggering 27%.

A third of those grades were awarded in the 9-7 (A*-A) category and 59% of all grades were at least a 6 or B grade.

Amongst the school’s success stories were Abdullah Ahmed, Mohammed Ali, Abbie Greenhalgh, George Hartley, Karran Kapur-Walton, Lovenne Knott and Sammy Lo, all of whom achieved 7-9 grades across ten subjects.

Headmistress, Judy Nairn, said: “The pressure on students has been enormous but we are extremely proud of the way that our students have risen to the challenge with the expert guidance of our staff and support from our parental body.

“We are proud to celebrate the achievements of all our students who have worked so hard to achieve their personal best.”

“The result is testament to our continuous drive to raise standards ensuring the students achieve their full potential. We are particularly pleased that the vast majority of our students achieved or exceeded their target grades.

“As an inclusive community, we are proud to celebrate the achievements of all our students who have worked so hard to achieve their personal best. We look forward to receiving many of our Year 11s into the Sixth Form as they commence their A Level studies and we wish our Year 13 students well as they embark on the next stage of their education careers.”

Celebrations for Bridgewater’s GCSE results follow an outstanding display at A Level, where Sixth Form students achieved a 98% pass rate, with almost half the grades at B and above.
