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.

We are incredibly pleased with the results our students have achieved despite a period of change in the education system with the new English and Maths GCSEs.

  • 42% of our students, each achieved at least 1 A*/A or equivalent.

  • 15% of students achieving the equivalent Grade A*/A in Maths, including 4 students with exceptional performance at the new Grade 9.

We were delighted that the percentage of students achieving the EBacc has more than doubled in the last two years to 23%

Congratulations to our hard working students and to the inspirational and dedicated staff.
