‘I would like to congratulate all our pupils for their superb achievements and thank their teachers and families for their guidance and support. I am delighted that so many of our sixth form students have achieved the excellent results they deserve and are going on to study at their university of choice. BSM's high quality education has clearly prepared our pupils for an international future.’ Kai Vacher, BSM Principal.
Sixth Form students at BSM maintained an impressive 99% pass rate despite A level results in the UK having dropped slightly this year. Students achieved an excellent 30% of grades at A*/A (UK national average 26%) and 59% at A*-B (UK national average 52.4%).
These results mean that 87% of BSM students have secured their first choice university destination. BSM alumni will be heading off to further their studies at world class universities in the UK including University College of London, the London School of Economics and the University of Bristol. BSM students will also be studying at leading universities in Calgary, Canada, Delft, the Netherlands, Stellenbosch, South Africa, Auckland, New Zealand and Melbourne, Australia.
GCSE students also achieved strong results with 47% attaining top grades of A*/A (UK national 21.3%). 81% of BSM students gained five or more A*-C grades (including mathematics and English) well above the national average of 68.8%.
Pupils in the Primary School again performed very well in their end of Key Stage 2 tests with 100% achieving level 4 in reading, 95% achieving level 4 in grammar, punctuation and spelling and 97% achieving level 4 in mathematics. Over 70% of pupils excelled in reading and grammar, punctuation and spelling with over 50% in mathematics achieving level 5 or above.
‘I would like to extend a warm welcome to our returning pupils and all the new families starting at BSM this September. We will begin this school year with record numbers of over 1100 pupils. I would also like to invite all parents to a coffee morning (10-12am) or evening (6-8pm) next Wednesday 10th September to meet with our architects Jestico+Whiles and share our exciting plans for developing the BSM campus.’ Kai Vacher.
