Birchwood High School saw over 100 Sixth Form students achieve a strong set of A-Level and Level 3 BTEC qualifications, reflecting the findings from the school’s recent Ofsted Inspection (June 2019) where inspectors found that ‘students currently in Years 12 and 13 are making strong progress in a wide range of A-Level courses.’

Principal, Dr Chris Ingate, said “after 13 years of full-time education, it is fantastic to see all our 18 year-old students move on to the next stage in their lives including prestigious Universities such as Cambridge, Durham and Warwick.  These results further build on the strong comments made by Ofsted in terms of us getting the balance right between academic progress, personal development and enrichment opportunities.’

There were many more students whose grades exceeded expectations. Head of Sixth Form, Mr Ian Torrance added “this cohort of students is a true reflection of Birchwood with regards to their dynamics and makeup. Some really pleasing results for what has been an incredible journey for so many, all the hard work has paid off and we wish them every success in their next steps. They, and their families, should feel very proud”
