Outstanding 2021 GCSE Results!
Bordesley Green Girls' School & Sixth Form regularly helps students achieve outstanding results in their Level 2 & GCSE examinations, part of our commitment to "Bringing Girls Greater Success". This Summer, (2021), students' achievement reached a new high point with our best ever results!
Students' "average" grade rose to 5.2, (strong pass), from 4.6 in 2019, showing a promising upward trend.
BGGS students achieved an average "Progress 8" score of +0.52, significantly above the National Average. (This figure compares the students' actual achievement to what they would be expected to achieve, compared to other similar schools nationwide).
72% of students achieved standard passes, (Grade 4), or above in both English and Mathematics, with 42% achieving strong passes, (Grade 5), or above. This compares with the Fisher Family Trust targets for our students of 54% and 40%. (FFT uses national average data about students to predict expected achievement , but of course this does not allow for the "BGGS Effect" from our committed and hardworking staff and students!)
EBacc involves students sitting a broad, balanced curriculum containing English, Mathematics, a Science or Sciences, History or Geography and at least one Modern Foreign Language. 92% of our students were entered for EBacc, a much higher proportion than the Government target of 75% by next year, and their achievements were very good. 51% achieved standard passes or above in all their EBacc subjects, (FTT prediction was also 51%), and 24% achieved strong passes, (FFT prediction of 23%).
Many thanks are due to staff for their tireless work and commitment throughout the lockdowns and beyond, and congratulations are due to the students for their outstanding achievement!
