Best ever A level results for Endowed students,
out-performing many local rivals and colleges.
There was excitement at Bridgnorth Endowed School as A- level results were announced.
The school is pleased to announce its best ever A-level results. 46% of A-level students were A*- B grades (this is the Government School comparison measure at A-level)
Of particular note is Ben Leather who achieved 3A* grades in Chemistry, Maths and Physics and an A in Further Maths who is going on to study Physics at Manchester University. Top performing students include Ben Spicer A*, A*, A, A who is hoping to go to Warwick to study Maths; Laura Yates A*, A*, B, B who goes to Nottingham to study Business with French; Thor Preston A, A, A, B who is going to Imperial College to study Chemistry. Sean O’Gara A, A, A, C and Xusha Andrews with A, A, A, B also did fantastically well.
Mr Loveday offered his congratulations to both staff and students saying, “We are delighted at the achievements of our students. The students and staff have worked very hard and this shows in the fantastic results achieved. These results open up many exciting opportunities for our students many of whom will go on to University or begin their careers and we will continue to support them to be the best that they can be.”
Bridgnorth Endowed School GCSE success
Following on from the best ever A-level results at Bridgnorth Endowed school last week, we are really pleased with the progress made by our GCSE students and especially delighted for the following students who have done fantastically well, amongst others:
Mary Spicer and Elliott Watters who achieved 11 A*/A grades; Imogen Edwards, Jess Knowles, Dom Wills, Callum Van de Weyer and Rebecca Wain who each achieved 10 A*/A grades, Nick Larsen and Tajwar Ahmed who achieved 9 A*/A grades and Meagan Broady who achieved 8 A*/A grades.
Mr Loveday, headteacher at the Endowed school, said, ‘We have worked hard with the students over the last five years, preparing them for their exams and these students have done fantastically well, setting themselves up for the next stage of their education.’ Many parents spoke to Mr Loveday on results morning, pleased with the performance of their child, but one parent’s comment really summarised their thoughts, “The kids can work hard but without the care guidance and support and great teaching they get at the Endowed School my son would never have got close to these outstanding results.”
71% of students achieved at least 5 higher passes
Over 20% of all grades were at A* or A and almost 80% of all grades were at A* to C
58% of students achieved at least 1 A or A* grade with over a third achieving at least 2 of these highest grades and more than 1 in 10 students achieving at least 5 A or A* grades
97% of students achieved at least 5 passes at A* to G
English and Maths results were both above the National pass-rate of 62% for each subject.
Bridgnorth Endowed sixth formers raise the profile of the Bridgnorth Food Bank
Bridgnorth Endowed school 6th formers have been busy raising funds and collecting donations for their chosen Charity the Bridgnorth Food Bank. The whole school has supported this charity by holding an ‘own clothes day’, participating in the Bridgnorth Walk and donating food and toiletries. The final presentation afternoon took place on Friday with tutor group representatives ‘handing over’ donations to Liz Bird who came into school on behalf of the Food Bank. Liz bird also presented all students with a certificate of thanks.
Taste of Tanzania
An exciting event was held by the Bridgnorth Endowed School charity ‘Taste of Tanzania’ to celebrate the recent launch of their ‘coffee bags’. Guests were tempted by a coffee cocktail to welcome them to the evening which was hosted by Peepo’s Restaurant and attended by local business, charities and parents. ‘Taste of Tanzania’ is led by 11 enterprising sixth form students who are fortunate to be mentored by Carrie Bate of ‘the little coffee bag co.’ and Mrs Jo Jones who works with the Headteacher in developing the school partnership with Umonga Secondary School in Dodoma. Teacher, Jo Jones described the ‘Taste of Tanzania’ as a “Fantastic cause run by talented students.” The company was created after the Year 12 students learnt of the hardships that orphans of Umonga Secondary school face every-day in trying to achieve an education. The children regularly go without meals and have to learn while being distracted by constant hunger. With this in mind the students decided that with every sale of their coffee they would be guaranteeing hot meals for the children in our partner school.
GCSE League tables show Endowed school students perform brilliantly for fifth consecutive year
Staff and students at the Endowed school were celebrating continued success when GCSE league tables were released last week. Head-teacher, Phil Loveday said, “every year the Government measures schools in more and more precise ways with the ‘Best 8 value added measure’ being the latest and most precise. It is a good measure because it takes into account student progress across a broad range of subjects including English, Maths, Science, a language, and a humanities subject. Last year we were disappointed with a blip in maths results following four years of fantastic results in this subject which makes such a great progress figure of over 1000 even more amazing. Achieving a ‘best 8’ result of over 1000 means that students make better progress at the Endowed than students nationally.
