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 2018

We would like to congratulate all our students for all their hard work and for achieving the grades they thoroughly deserve. We are delighted to report that overall results are up from last year. We would particularly like to mention the outstanding performance of three students:

E Foster – 8 GCSEs graded 7-9

C Wilson – 8 GCSEs graded 7-9

H Murphy – 6 GCSEs graded 7-9 and 2 grade 6s.

Of the students we taught 61% of our students achieved 5 or more standard passes with 67% achieving a standard pass in English Literature or English Language.

Our maths department were especially proud of the 3 grade 9 results the students achieved in mathematics, putting them in the top 3.6% of students nationally.

The number of students who achieved the English Baccalaureate remains high at 23%.

Full details, including subject performance tables and student destination information, can be viewed in our Prospectus Insert on the Prospectus webpage.
