    GCSE Results 2020

    Staff and Governors extend their congratulations to the Year 11 students who received their examination results on the 20th August 2020.

    We are delighted to report students at St Bernard’s continue to achieve particularly strong academic results this year. The results show an estimated Progress 8 score of +1.1.  This indicates that, on average, students at
    St Bernard’s gain a grade higher than the national average (calculated against published results in 2019).

    86% of year 11 students achieved a 4 (standard pass) or above at GCSE in both Mathematics and English.  In Mathematics, the proportion of our students gaining a strong pass (Level 5 and above) was 64%, representing a rising trend, and over 88% gained a Level 4 or above. In English, 79% of our students gained a grade 5 or higher and 94% gained a Level 4 or above.

    Across the wider curriculum there were similar successes.  The % of grades at 9-4 is above 89% and the % at 9-5 is at 72%. Close to 30% of the grades achieved were a grade 7 or above.

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

    A Level Results 2020

    St Bernard’s Staff and Governors send their congratulations to our Year 13 students on their achievements in 2020. We are proud of the success all our students have achieved this year across a broad range of A level and vocational subjects.  

    A-level grades have been awarded by the examination boards in the absence of examinations. The examination boards have taken account of teacher predictions and these have been subjected to a moderation process which uses the school’s historical data and the prior attainment of individual students.

    Our results continue to be strong. Over 65% of all A level grades in 2020 were A*-B and 92% of all A level grades were A*-C.  27% of grades were A*-A.

    The year 13 average points score per A Level entry is 38.12

    Individual student successes are many and below are just some of the wide range of university courses being embarked upon by St Bernard’s students in 2020: 

    International Relations and Politics at the University of East Anglia; Law and History at the University of Kent; Photography at Bath Spa University; Graphic Design at Norwich University of the Arts; Psychology at Queen Mary University of London; Film Production and Cinematography at Bournemouth University; Architecture at Coventry University; Music at Oxford Brookes University; Religion, Philosophy and Ethics at Kings College London; Criminology at Birmingham City University.


    "Life at St Bernard’s is a whole different world. It opens many doors that you thought were locked. Helps you do things you never thought you could do".
