Congratulations to the students and staff involved in the IGCSE exams this year! The results are in and we have achieved some of our best results for externally marked assessments ever!
Students this year have for the first time (in externally marked examinations) achieved 100% A* to C, with 43% of grades awarded being A*-A, the second highest rate for externally marked assessments that students at the College have ever managed to achieve!
All of the students at Bishopstrow who take these examinations complete the two-year course in just one year, and as they are all international students they are all studying in their second language. It is always a huge achievement to pass any IGCSE examination in such circumstances!
Commenting on the results, Chris Lewis, Director of Studies remarked: “These are some very good exam results, particularly for a post lockdown cohort. So, it’s a huge thank you to the teachers who have worked with those students, either directly with their subjects or indirectly through language support. And, a huge well done and thank you for everyone else who supported these students!”
Overall, more than 150 students have attended Bishopstrow College during this academic year and they have all enjoyed studying, learning and playing together both in-person and online. They have all made great progress and we wish them every success as they move on to their new schools.
