BFS celebrates best ever GCSE results!

Bristol Free School is celebrating their best ever GCSE results this year. 83% of students achieved a grade 4 and above in English and 79% did the same in Maths. Maths and English grades for a quarter of all students were at the top grades of 7-9 (equivalent to A grade or higher).  The average grade for students taking separate sciences was a 7, with many students achieving 8s and 9s; this continues the school’s excellent reputation for STEM subjects. There is outstanding progress across the curriculum, with students showing particular flair this year in Drama, Business, RE and Languages. As part of the Russell Education Trust’s commitment to academic excellence, BFS students continue to be very successful at gaining the challenging English Baccalaureate (EBacc) qualification with 44% of students achieving this.

Susan King, Headteacher, shared her pride in the success of her students and teachers, saying, “Progress made by all students is extremely high this year. This is a testament to the hard work of students and the excellent teaching in the school. I am equally proud of the students who have reached the highest standards in these new, more rigorous GCSEs as well as those who have overcome barriers to reach their full academic potential at our school. They have been a hard-working year group who have responded well to advice and guidance and this was crucial to their great success.”
