Broadoak School is proud to report on a record breaking year for examination results in 2016. 65% of pupils achieved the headline measure of a C grade or above in both English and Mathematics. This is unprecedented success for the school, with the previous record for this measure at 53% in 2012.
71% of pupils achieved a C grade or above in Mathematics which is also a school record. 71% of pupils achieved a C or above in English Language or Literature with 69% of pupils achieving a C grade or above in English Language and 64% achieving a C or above in English Literature. Almost a third of pupils secured a B grade or above in English Language. This success reveals the commitment and focus Broadoak School has in driving standards in these all important core subjects.
Equally important is the success of Science. A cohort of triple scientists achieved highly in all 3 subjects with 1 pupils achieving A* grades in Chemistry and Physics and a grade A in Biology. 100% of this cohort achieved A*-C in all 3 sciences.
The breadth of the curriculum means pupils study a suite of other qualifications (including vocational qualifications) which have also had excellent outcomes. Courses in Digital Applications, Construction, Performing Arts and Motor Vehicle all had 100% pass rate. Meanwhile, Business Studies, Art, Health and Social Care and Sport all ensured that more than 80% of pupils that undertook the courses achieved the all-important pass as a minimum.
Despite a changing curriculum landscape these examination results are testament to the tireless work of the staff and the pupils. The school looks forward to maintaining this success in 2017.
