2016 sees great results at BL6
It’s an excellent year once again with students in BL6 performing incredibly well to match last year’s best ever results. The target grades were set high and many students have surpassed their expected grades.
In summary the headlines are 25% of grades awarded were A* or A, 54% were A* to B, 79% were A* to C and virtually 100% A* to E. A remarkable five students gained A*’s in all subjects studied with another nine gaining A*’s and A’s in every subject; many did equally well given their target grades and, in the case of a number of students, in the face of real adversity. Seventy six students came away with the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) all of which were A* to C.
There are some fantastic success stories, be those gaining vocational qualifications or those going down the more traditional A level route. During the year they have also taken advantage of all the enrichment opportunities on offer, such as work experience, charity fund raising and EPQ in BL6 to make themselves ready for the next stage of their lives.
Headteacher, Andrew Cliffe commented, ‘It’s fantastic that these results have opened up so many opportunities for our students. Some great apprenticeships, vocational training courses as well as top universities, including three off to Oxford or Cambridge, are the exciting destinations for our students. A huge well done to all the students and many thanks for the support offered by both families and our hard working, dedicated teachers.’

During the year they have also taken advantage of all the enrichment opportunities on offer, such as work experience, charity fund raising and EPQ in BL6 to make themselves ready for the next stage of their lives. All students can do is to fulfil their potential; whatever grade or qualification that may represent, be that 5 top grade A levels or simply gaining sufficient qualifications to do their desired next step. Staff and students, with the support of their families, have worked really hard and deserve their success. Congratulations go to staff, students and their families. ‘
