Public exams were cancelled in the summer of 2020 due to the Covid-19 outbreak and replaced by a system of indicated grades, mostly assessed by the school. We are delighted that all the hard work and dedication of Beaumont students was rewarded with excellent results, enabling them to take the next steps in their education or training. We were particularly delighted that over 90% of our university applicants gained a place at one of their chosen universities, including some of the most prestigious institutions in the land. Since the latest results are not comparable with those of previous years, we have not reported them in detail here, although you can download a breakdown by subject at the bottom of the page if you wish to do so. In line with performance tables, the information below is about exam results from 2019.
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)
More students than ever took their A Levels and equivalent qualifications at Beaumont in the summer of 2019 and they did themselves and the school proud, maintaining the high standards set with smaller cohorts in previous years and gaining 44 A* grades in the process. Almost all UCAS applicants have won a place at a university of their choice, with more than half going to a Russell Group institution. We wish our leavers every success in their ongoing education and future careers and we look forward to hearing about the exciting things which lie ahead of them.

Key Stage 4 (GCSE and equivalent)
2019 was another year of great success in GCSEs and equivalent qualifications for Beaumont students, with school records tumbling in the core subject headline measures and an extremely impressive percentage of the top 9-7 grades (equivalent to A*-A in “old money”) right across the curriculum. We are delighted that such a high proportion of our outgoing Year 11 have opted to remain with us to continue their studies into the Sixth Form, alongside the many newcomers who we welcome to the school community, and we anticipate further success from them at Key Stage 5.
