    Staff and Governors extend their congratulations to the Year 11 students who received their examination results on the 24th August.

    Once again we are delighted to report outstanding results.

    At St Bernard’s 84% of year 11 students achieved a 4 (standard pass) at GCSE in both English and Mathematics; 87% of our students gained 5 or more GCSEs including English and Mathematics at A*-C (or 4-9).

    90% of students achieved a 4 or higher at GCSE in English and 87% a 4 or higher at GCSE in Mathematics.

    Congratulations go to all our students for their hard work and achievement and we take this opportunity recognise the care and support given to them by parents, carers and the adults in the school in achieving such success.

    A Level Results 2017

    St Bernard’s Staff and Governors send their congratulations to Year 13 students on their achievements as the school reports increased performance at A-level for the 3rd year running.

    We continue to cater for internal and external students at sixth form level and are proud of the success all our students have achieved this year, across a broad range of A level subjects. In 2017 we have seen a 100% pass rate across all 20 A level subjects.

    56% of all A level grades were A*-B with 25% being A*-A and 83% of all A level grades were A*-C. These figures show a 7% increase compared with 2016, and continue the strong and rising trend in attainment.

    The year 13 average points score per A Level entry rose again this year, by 9 points, to 227.6 which makes the average grade achieved a B-, up from last year’s average grade of C.
