Every student who chooses to study at BL6 will receive an excellent education and will be valued and developed as an individual. Personal care will be taken to ensure that students genuinely achieve their potential and that they are fully prepared for their chosen pathway into higher education, training or employment.
A Level Results Day 2018
This year Brine Leas BL6 students have continued to gain very impressive results. In the face of ever more demanding A levels, 76% of the cohort gained A* to C grades with 22% of entries at A* or A. Virtually all students achieved the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) with at least 65% of students being awarded an A* to B grade; 11 students attained 3 straight A grades or better with two realising 3 A* grades.
Once again, BL6 students have diverse destinations that are both challenging and appropriate. To give some examples, one student has a degree apprenticeship at JCB, two have football scholarships in America, one student will be reading English Literature at Oxford and another, Engineering at Cambridge; several will be starting veterinary or medical courses.
‘We are thrilled and delighted that so many students, with the help of their families and teachers, have done so well this year. A level reform saw the specifications for most subjects change with linear examinations. In the light of so many changes to ‘A’ Levels, and in some subjects with very little guidance from examination boards and no past papers, students and staff have managed to perform at a consistently high level,’ commented Headteacher Andrew Cliffe. ‘On the back of two years of really hard work, we are really pleased that BL6 students have been able to meet their challenging targets and that their grades allow them to carry on with the next stage of their lives.’
Extended Project Qualification
Current Year 12 students, who will be continuing into Year 13 in September 2018, have been requested to complete their EPQ over the summer break, with a complete draft submission being handed to their supervisors on 14th September 2018. This final draft will then be returned with feedback for improvements and a predicted grade will be made.
