This morning students at BMS marked the conclusion of the most extraordinary and challenging 18 months as they received their A Level results on campus but in the fresh air. This year, in the absence of the traditional public examinations, the grades were generated by teachers using a range of evidence based on subject content delivered either in the classroom or online.
Students at BMS consistently achieve outstanding A Level results year on year and 2021 is no exception. Despite the disruption caused by the pandemic, teaching and learning continued throughout and the grades awarded reflect the students’ hard work and determination against the odds.
Their success has ensured that a record 88% will now go on to their first-choice university both in the UK and overseas to study a broad range of subjects ranging from biochemistry to classics and theatre to mathematics highlighting the sheer diversity of talent exhibited by students here at BMS.
Headmaster, Alex Tate, said: “I would like to congratulate all our students on achieving excellent results which are richly deserved. They adopted a resilient attitude and mature approach to their studies during incredibly challenging times and now leave BMS well prepared for the next stage of their lives. I wish them every success.
“I am also immensely grateful to the team of dedicated staff who worked incredibly hard to give our students the very best chance possible to prove their abilities and gathered evidence, marked and moderated work. This was over and above their usual teaching commitments and what was asked of them was not at all straightforward.”
