All the staff, students and governors at Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College are thrilled with their 2016 GCSE results. This year’s results are the best ever for overall GCSE grades with 5 or more A* - C at 56% with English and Maths, a notable 15% of the grades being A * and A. English was at an outstanding 71% and Maths at 60%. However, the College is particularly delighted with the excellent progress the students have made since joining at the age of 11, which means a high number of students have achieved their personal best!
The number of students gaining A* and As across all subjects was really excellent and bucks the national trend. An impressive number of students also gained Distinction* awards for our BTEC vocational courses. In other subjects, Triple Science and Drama results were outstanding and a notable 100% of Further Maths students passed with A* - C.
This year there was an international feel for some of the subjects taken. Three students took GCSE Greek, two studied and excelled in Polish and one in Russian. The College also welcomed Astrid Moritz from Germany who joined the College for just 1 year and gained 10 A* - C grades including an A* in German!
Ms Pritchard, Headteacher, added, "We are really pleased with these excellent results. We have introduced some very structured testing and monitoring regimes, which has ensured that every student understands exactly where they need to be so they can reach their full potential. We have also adapted some of the learning models from our More Able and Talented programme and again this has added great value across the whole curriculum. I would like to thank all the students and their families for all their support and commitment and wish them well as they say goodbye!”.
