All the hard work pays off!

Huge congratulations to our GCSE students!  Mrs Jones explains why:

Exams regulator Ofqual has said a return to pre-pandemic grading means this year's national GCSE results in England will be lower than last year and similar to levels in 2019 – the year before coronavirus disrupted education. However, we are delighted with the performance of our students. The percentage of students securing a grade 5 or above in English and Maths exceeds that of 2019 and so many of our students secured 5 grade 4s or above, including English and Maths. These results are testament to the drive and determination of our fantastic students. We also have some exceptional individual performances:

  • Leo Morton – 8 grade 9s and 2 grade 8s
  • Alicia Bradbrook – 1 Distinction star, 6 grade 9s, 2 grade 8s and a grade 7
  • Dom Seward – 8 grade 9s and 2 grade 7s
  • Jake Edwards- 6 grade 9s, 2 grade 8s, a grade 7 and a grade 5
  • Leann Johnston – 3 grade 9s, 6 grade 8s and a grade 7
  • Isabelle Woolley – 3 grade 9s, 4 grade 8s, 2 grade 7s and a grade 5
  • Dylan Taylor – 1 Distinction Star, 1 grade 9, 6 grade 8s, a grade 6 and a grade 5
  • Tom Crispin – 1 grade 9, 6 grade 8s, 2 grade 7s and a grade 6

In addition, we are also extremely proud of the achievements of Lola Hill who is off to study a T level in Midwifery at Macclesfield College, Izzy Wray who will be studying Film Photography and Videography at Access Creative College, Manchester, Dakota Todd who has secured an apprenticeship at the Crescent Hotel in Buxton, Alfie Gissing and Saul Cullen who have both secured a place at Buxton Football Academy and many, many others who worked tirelessly and have achieved amazing results.

We are extremely excited that so many of our students are staying on with us at BCS Sixth Form and we wish all of our students the best of luck wherever it is you are going next – we are so proud of everything you have achieved at BCS! We do still have a small number of places left for anyone who would like to join our Sixth Form, in September. We are extremely proud of our Sixth Form, in particular, we are delighted to report a 100% pass rate across all qualifications, with 60% of students gaining AAB or better across three A Levels. If you would like to be part of our amazing Sixth Form, please contact our head of Sixth form, Jackie Cruse at
