Stunning, record-breaking GCSE results!
Congratulations to Year 11!
190 Year 11 Bexley Grammar School students have bucked the national trend and achieved an amazing set of record-breaking GCSE results which are even higher than last year, in this first year of examinations since 2019.
At a glance:
- 75% 9-7 grades (old A*/A)
- 50% 9-8 grades (old A*)
- 7.4 Average point score per entry
A quarter of all the grades achieved were the top GCSE grade of 9 and a remarkable three-quarters of all the grades were 9-7 (the old A*-A measure). This is up 6 percentage points from last year and over 20% higher than in 2019, our last examined year.
Two students, Ben Huggett and James Spatz, gained a perfect set of 11 grade 9 GCSEs - stunning achievements! Maya Loison also achieved 11 grade 9s alongside a 12th GCSE at grade 7. Of their 11 grades, Dylan Christie, Pamela Fernandes, Davina Ngenegbo, Ammar Gill, Nathan Singleton and Shakeel Majeed achieved 10 grade 9s.
67 students (over a third) secured straight 9-7 (old A*-A grades) and 122 students (nearly two-thirds) achieved 8 or more 9-7 grades.
The average point score for the whole year group is 7.4 (a comfortable A grade). All BGS students studied the three separate sciences, two foreign languages and at least one humanities subject alongside mathematics and both English and English Literature – the majority took eleven GCSEs (10.8 entries per candidate).
Students and their parents should be so proud of these incredible results; our dedicated staff have been justly rewarded well for their unstinting commitment to and belief in our students, particularly through the challengings times of the past two years. These results are a vindication of the commitment of the whole school community throughout the pandemic. Congratulations!
