GCSE Exam Results 2023
Bristol Free School is celebrating a superb set of GCSE and Level 2 Vocational results. Despite significant disruption by the pandemic, and a return to a full exam season, Year 11 have demonstrated high levels of resilience and dedication.
82% of students achieved a standard pass (grade 4+) in English and Maths and 29% attained a grade 7+. The proportion of students achieving five grades at 4+ exceeded the national average despite a nationally reported dip in results from 2022. Most of our cohort will remain with us to study in our Sixth Form.
Mrs King (Headteacher) said – ‘I am absolutely delighted with this year's GCSE and BTEC results - it is the best GCSE results in the school’s history! We are all so proud of how hard this cohort have worked in very challenging circumstances. The number of students achieving a grade 4 and above in English and maths is fantastic this year and despite the national news reports of a reduction in Grade 7 and above BFS has seen done well above national levels in this measure. Due to this success, we are seeing record numbers enrolling into our Sixth Form - the future is bright for this cohort!’
