The small numbers of students sitting each exam make statistical analysis difficult, particularly with students who have so many barriers to learning and achievement. However, we do hope they give you a flavour of what can be achieved here at Breckenbrough.
To illustrate how at Breckenbrough we work with our students to succeed, we have shared a number of case studies. Student Case studies
Key Stage 2 results:
Due to heightened levels of anxiety and arriving at the school with gaps in their learning, Key Stage 2 students do not take their SATS in Year 6. Students who arrive in the school from Year 7 onwards sometimes have Key Stage 2 data from their previous school, but for similar reasons listed above, many arrive without data and have not taken their SATS.
It has been another successful summer for our GCSE cohort. 100% of students achieved a minimum of a 5-4 in the reformed science qualification, with Maths and English maintaining a consistency in our pass rates. Humanities and art continue to thrive with students achieving good grades across an increasingly diverse range of subjects.
100% of our GCSE students achieved the qualifications necessary to progress on to their Post-16 pathway.
A Level and Level 3 Results’ 2018:
We are exceedingly proud of the achievements of our 6th Formers this year. We had two students leave us to take up places at University; one (Economics B, Government & Politics C, Mathematics C) to Lincoln to read Economics and one (Geography B, Law C, History C) to York St John to take up his place studying Law. We wish them the best of luck and are certain, with them being so close, we will see and hear from them plenty over the next few years.
We were also elated with the grades achieved by our Lower Sixth. One of our students, working with the Cleveland College of Art & Design, achieved a B in History of Art and a C in Photography both at AS Level, and will be continuing his studies with York College whilst under our care. One of our students already working with York College, we are also proud to announce, has excelled with his achievements of an A* at A-Level Maths, A at AS Further Maths, A in AS Physics, and B in AS Computer Science. We are also over the moon to share that our student who has been working towards his Level 3 Diploma in Creative Media Production has passed with a Distinction. Our congratulations go out to all of them.
Those of our Lower Sixth studying within Breckenbrough have also some very impressive achievements to be proud of. One of our students has achieved an A at AS Maths and will be studying A-Level Mathematics and Computer Science with us. Our final 6th Form student has excelled himself in the first year of his A-Level studies here to achieve a C at both AS Government & Politics and History.
