The class of 2017 at Beaumont hit the heights with their results. 41% of ‘A’ Level grades were at A* or A, enabling 37% of applicants to gain a place at a Russell Group university. At GCSE 37% of results were at grade A/7 or better, with very high outcomes in the challenging new English and Maths qualifications and a Progress 8 score which puts us in the top 15% of schools across the country.
Students make outstanding progress and their attainment, including that of the most able students, in gaining five or more A* to C grades including English and mathematics is much better than in other schools nationally – OFSTED 2014
Key Stage 5 (A level and equivalent)
We are extremely proud of the fantastic A Level results achieved by Beaumont students in 2017. In many ways it was a record-breaking year for the school, with the highest ever average grade and points at A Level. 41% of results at the top two grades is also a stunning score, including 58 A* grades across 19 different subjects. Over 90% of our students succeeded in getting into one of their chosen universities and we wish them the best as they continue their studies at many of the most prestigious institutions in the land.
