BST students have again produced outstanding results in the Sixth Form and at all the key stages in earlier years. Tests are taken in the Primary School at the end of Year 2 (age 6-7) and Year 6 (age 10-11). In the Secondary School, GCSE exams are taken at the end of Year 11 (age 15-16) and Sixth Form students aged 16,17 and 18 take AS exams (Year 12) and A levels (Year 13) .
This year 100% of our GCSE students achieved at least 5 A* to C grades with over 92% of subjects being graded A* to C. Best of all, 45% of exams were awarded the top grade of A* compared to 24% in UK independent schools and 22% in UK grammar schools. 67% were graded either A* or A compared to 52% in UK independent schools and 55% in UK grammar schools.
AS level students had great success with 81% of subjects graded A or B. Students apply to some of the best universities in the world.
In the Primary School, the Year 2 and Year 6 students excelled again in the Statutory Assessment Tests (SATs) taken in May. As usual, the Year 6 SATs were marked in the UK and the results were made available to students in August.
The vast majority of students (over 90% in Year 2 and over 98% in Year 6) attained at least the UK National expected level of attainment, with many (a majority in Year 6) performing one whole level above that expected for the year group. In Year 2, this included 45% of the students in reading, 20% in writing and 47% in maths at level 3. In Year 6, this included 75% of the students in reading, 61% in writing and 70% in maths at level 5.
