One third of all grades awarded were at 9 – 7 which is an excellent achievement. Given the uneven impact of the pandemic on school and college performance data, the government has said you should not make direct comparisons between the performance data for one school or college and another, or to data from previous years. Our last set of validated data from 2019 is shown below.

We are delighted with these results across both A Level and BTEC, where students are following new, more rigorous and demanding courses.
Students across all courses and programmes should be proud of their achievements, which are the result of their sustained hard work over two years of study, supported by dedicated and expert teachers. Alongside this they have achieved many other qualifications – for example in Music and Drama exams, Extended Project Qualification and Finance; not to mention their involvement in many and varied activities and expeditions in school, locally, nationally and internationally. The qualities and achievements in these areas, alongside their academic qualifications, set them in good stead for their future courses, training or employment.
Many thanks to all our staff and parents who have supported Bullers Wood students throughout their studies, and we wish all our students every success for the future.
