Broadoak extend our congratulations to the class of 2020 who have been awarded with a set of examination results that truly reward their positive attitudes and conscientious efforts over the past five years.
Following the government’s announcement that Centre Assessed Grades may be used to measure GCSE pupil performance, our Year 11 cohort have achieved results which show that the process at Broadoak has been thorough and accurate, the staff being best placed to estimate GCSE and BTEC results for the pupils that they know so well.
Despite the unusual format and circumstances surrounding this results day, we are delighted that pupils have not been disadvantaged in terms of their final outcomes and that they have been justly rewarded for all of their hard work. These results bode well for pupils’ next steps whether it be onto further education, employment or training.
As you will have read in the media, BTEC results are not yet final. As soon as we have an update from Pearson we will write to you in due course.
Headlines include the fact that over 38% of pupils achieved a grade 5 in English and Maths and over 68% of pupils achieved a grade 9-4 in both of these key subjects. More importantly, pupils have made strong and rapid progress in many subject areas and there are some fantastic individual success stories with our highest performing pupil achieving two grade 9s, three 8s and four 7s, with additional BTEC results to follow.
These grades will ensure that the class of 2020 have the greatest possible chance of securing their chosen next steps with Broadoak pupils confirming places on a range of Level 3 courses, apprenticeships and A-Level courses across the borough and Greater Manchester.
