Results and Destinations
The academic results at Blue Coat are first-rate, and the last three years of A Level results have been the best in the history of the School. The 2017 results broke all records by every measurement, at A*, A*-A and A*-B, making us one of the highest achieving schools in the region. In a time when the educational landscape is changing, including the introduction of linear exams and new syllabuses, we are delighted that our pupils are flourishing in the Sixth Form. Whilst these results are important, the destinations of our leavers are also notable, especially when 80% successfully met their offer for their first choice destination, and almost 90% achieved their first choice or insurance offer.
GCSE results at Blue Coat have been remarkably consistent over the past five years, hovering around 90% A*-B/9-7. Again we have seen a revision of GCSE syllabuses and the gradual introduction of a new grading system (1-9). Despite these changes, and the national statistics that show a tightening of grade boundaries, we are delighted that our boys continue to perform so well, both in absolute terms and by value-added measurements.
