The class of 2018 achieved new standards of excellence at Beaumont. The top three grades made up 70% of ‘A’ Level results, enabling 41% of university applicants to gain a place at a Russell Group institution. GCSE candidates attained Grades 9-7 (A*-A) with 44% of their entries, no fewer than 214 of which were Grade 9s. Our Progress 8 score shows that Beaumont students made better progress by almost a whole grade in each subject during their time with us than their peers nationally, and we look forward to providing the same outstanding educational value to young people in each successive year.
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 outstanding results achieved by Beaumont students in 2018. They have maintained the highest ever average grade at the school and gained 43 A* grades in the process. By achieving this success, the young people in our care have secured bright futures for themselves, whether in education or employment. An overwhelming majority of UCAS applicants have won their chosen places, including four who have gained entry to Oxbridge and many more who are heading to other prestigious universities. We wish our leavers every success.

Key Stage 4 (GCSE and equivalent)
We have nothing but praise for the way our students have responded to the increased demands placed upon them by the new, reformed GCSE qualifications in most subjects. More challenging content is covered and considerably more emphasis is placed upon the final exams than was the case before, but they were not deterred. In fact, they broke new ground, including a record-breaking percentage for the top grades, outstanding pass rates for the core subjects and a Progress 8 score which puts us well within the top 5% of schools in the country.
