Record success for BFS

BRISTOL Free School is celebrating record of GCSE and Level 2 Vocational results.

Year 11 demonstrated resilience and dedication.  Eighty two per cent of students achieved a standard pass (grade 4+) in English and Maths and 29 per cent attained a grade 7 or above. The proportion of students achieving five grades at 4+ exceeded the national average despite a nationally reported dip in results from 2022. Most of the cohort have stayed at  BFS to study in the sixth form.

Headteacher Susan King said: “I am absolutely delighted with this year’s GCSE and BTEC results – the best GCSE results in the school’s history! We are all so proud of how hard this cohort have worked in very challenging circumstances. The number of students achieving a grade 4 and above in English and maths is fantastic this year and despite the national news reports of a reduction in grade 7 and above BFS has seen done well above national levels in this measure. Due to this success, we are seeing record numbers enrolling into our sixth form – the future is bright for this cohort!”
