Examination Entry Policy
We believe that all students should be given the opportunity to enter as many subjects as possible. The school operates an open entry policy and no restriction is made on the grounds of ability in order to improve the statistics. All students, regardless of ability, are given the same opportunities. Broadwater has a reputation for maximising the performance of students of all abilities.
GCSE Examination Results 2020
Due to COVID 19 no formal exams were sat in the summer of 2020. Therefore the latest data we have to report on is from 2019.
Congratulations to the Class of 2020!
In what has been an extraordinary year in so many ways, we wanted to congratulate our Year 11s on their wonderful GCSE results. It should be recognised what an outstanding year group they were, and they should be very proud of the results they worked so hard for. Whilst GCSE outcomes are a significant measure of our students’ success, they are not the only measure. This year group were exceptional role models for the younger year groups in their attitude to their studies, extra-curricular activities, their leadership and their kindness. Furthermore, we are immensely proud of the maturity they have shown through this tumultuous period. We have every confidence that the Class of 2020 will go far, and we wish them all the best in their future endeavours.
(A very proud) Headteacher
