2016 A Level Overview

This year sees the continuation of the upward trend in our A level results. A third of our grades were A* to A from an overall 100% pass rate. All subject areas have recorded consistent performances with our Mathematics department producing outstanding results, 17 out of 26 entries at Maths and Further Maths were A* to A. Nearly two thirds of our students gained entry to Russell Group Universities which included Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial, University College London, Durham, Newcastle, Manchester and Bristol. The subjects of choice were predominantly STEM subjects, Theoretical Physics, Aerospace Engineering and Chemistry.It is fantastic to note that 80% of our pupils secured a place at their first choice university. The diverse range of subjects included Forensic Science, International Business Management, Business & Hispanic Studies, Law & Criminology, Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Sciences and Architecture.

Rachael Brown will be continuing the Bedian tradition of girls studying the Sciences at Oxford university by securing her place at Magdalen College, to read Chemistry with an amazing 4 A* in Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry and Physics. Nick Grogan 3A* (Maths, Further Maths, Physics) is the latest in a distinguished line of scholars from St. Bede’s in recent years, to go up to
Trinity College Cambridge to read Mathematics. He follows in the footsteps of Thomas Cochrane who gained a First Class Honours Degree in 2006 and Sam Walsh who matched his achievement this year. Trinity is considered by many to be the foremost College for those reading Mathematics and it’s good to see the Mathematics Department at St. Bede’s inspiring excellence
at this level.

2016 GCSE Overview

The 2016 class of GCSE students have achieved 42% A*-A and an impressive 72% A* – B.  This is an increase on last year’s figure and testimony to the nurturing environment with St. Bede’s which brings the best out of each and every one of its pupils. Our Mathematics results show great promise forthe future as the pupils achieved 100% A* – A at Further Maths GCSE indicating that we can expect high standards to continue at A level. This trend continued in Fine Art which also achieved 100% A*-A, the beautiful art work on display in Holly Bank is indicative of the high standards set in this highly creative and personal subject.
