We are delighted to share with you our examination results from this summer. Staff and students have worked hard to secure improvements in all the key benchmarks used for measuring student progress.

Destinations

92 students (83% of the cohort) secured a place at university this year with destinations across the country and a wide variety of courses including 10 Russell Group University places secured. Many of our students are successful in securing their first choice of university.

Our school data:

GCSE/BTEC Level 2 Results

When Bradford Academy opened in 2007 the first set of GCSE outcomes for year 11 leavers was just 18% 5A*-C and 93% 5 A*-G. In the following ten years the Academy has gone on to deliver the results for year 11 2017 leavers at National Average.

Parents and carers should note that the UK Government changed the way in which school effectiveness is reported in the 2015 White Paper. The two measures that will become familiar in time are Progress 8 (which measures the progress made from KS2 start point) and Attainment 8 (the average attainment made over 8 best subjects).

For ease of understanding the Academy has published what the Progress 8 and Attainment 8 would have been over the last three years.

Our 2017 results show that progress of all our learners is in line with national expectations regardless of their starting point.

We are immensely proud of all our learners’ achievements at Bradford Academy.
