Recent Exam Results

Each year, our pupils achieve excellent exam results and 2018 was no exception. Right across the board we saw outstanding achievement overall.

Our International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBDP) students achieved a remarkable average of 36 points and a staggering nine students received 40 points or more out of the possible 45 - the equivalent of A*A*A at A Level.

At A Level 25 students achieved a full set of A* and A grades. When combined with the IBDP results, the overall results for the Sixth Form are 44% A*-A, 78% A*-B, 96% A*-C and a 100% pass rate.

Among the 2018 Upper Sixth cohort, eight students have taken up offers at Oxford and Cambridge Universities.

At GCSE level, 18% of Brentwood School pupils received 9s in subjects graded in the new way compared to the national trend, which suggested only 4% of pupils achieved one. 29 students received all A*As/9-7s in their examinations, again bucking the national downward trend for these grades.

In total, the percentage of A*As/9-7 grades rose 3% to 60% and virtually all students (97%) received C or above (9-4), also a rise of 3%.

These statistics represent the dedication and excellence of our teaching staff and the hard work and application of our pupils, and we are justifiably proud of their achievement.

Here are a few highlights:
