GCSE Results 2018


We are absolutely delighted to report our outstanding 2018 GCSE results, the best in the history of Brakenhale School! Improvements have been made this year across ALL performance measures with many significantly higher than previous years.

The percentage of students achieving a Grade 4 (equivalent to an old C grade) in English and Maths has risen by 12% to 60% and those achieving a Grade 5 in English and Maths has increased by 11%.

In English, 71% of students achieved the Grade 4 and above – 11% higher than last year and in Maths it was 68%, a 14% increase on last year. In addition, following our constant focus on ‘High Expectations and Challenge’, almost 25% of the year group gained the equivalent of an A/A* in English; a phenomenal achievement.

Due to the changing nature of qualifications no school is able to publish an accurate and official progress 8 figure until the Department of Education releases this in December. However,we have seen a significant improvement in the initial figure that has been calculated on last year’s data. This gives us a positive score which equates to a third of a grade more progress for all students compared with 2017. Our Attainment 8 grade demonstrates an improvement of almost half a grade per student in comparison with last year.  

These results are absolute evidence of the impact that Brakenhale School has on the outcomes and life chances of its students.

In addition there have been some exceptional individual student outcomes. We are absolutely delighted that hard work, dedication and fantastic teaching has enabled our students to achieve the very best grades across the board. The students below have achieved 5 or more A and A* equivalencies (7-9).
