August 2016: Bristol Free School celebrates our first set of GCSE results
This week we have celebrated our first set of GCSE results with 66% of students gaining A*-C in both English and Maths. There were some exceptional sets of results including: James Beggs 10 A*s, Max Davies 7 A*s and 3As, Lianne Tagudin 6A*s and 4As, Daniyal Tariq 5A*s and 6As. They are excited to be progressing on to our brand new BFS Sixth Form in September, along with their peers and students from across the north of the city.
I’m very proud of Year 11; they are a truly comprehensive and inclusive year group, 76 of whom were with us on the day we opened in September 2011. These results are an excellent achievement using both the old measure of 5A* - C and the newer, which will reflect students’ impressive progress in English, Maths and Science.
CEO of the Russell Education Trust, Karen Lynch:
"We’re delighted with this first set of results at BFS and know that the school will continue to go from strength to strength. The parents who worked with us to establish a new secondary school for North West Bristol can be justly proud of BFS because it is the expanding and high-achieving school for which they campaigned."
The start of our new Sixth Form
Our new Sixth Form will open on Monday 5 September 2016, and we are still open for enrolment. Please visit the Sixth Form website for more information and start of term arrangements.
