At Bramcote College we focus on the core values of ‘Work Hard, Be Well, Do Well’ which has resulted in another year of above average GCSE results. Students made on average over half a grade more progress in every subject than students nationally in 2019.*
*The last time official performance measures were published.

While the year group was small, just 67 students, we are none-the-less proud of the tremendous effort made by each and every student, and our staff, in such an extraordinary year and grateful for the support of parents and carers throughout.

The results, especially when compared to previous years, show a clear trend of accelerating progress at Bramcote College:

  • 87% of students achieved Grade 4+ in English 
  • 75% of students achieved Grade 5+ in English
  • 81% of students achieved Grade 4+ in Maths
  • 60% of students achieved Grade 5+ in Maths
  • 76% of students achieved Grade 4+ in both English & Maths
  • 54% of students achieved Grade 5+ in both English & Maths
  • 10% of students achieved 5+ Grades 7 to 9 (A/A*)
  • 5% of students achieving 9s and 8s in all their subjects
  • Almost 8% of grades achieved were top grade 9s, with one student achieving grade 9s in all their subjects and a further two achieving all grades 8 and 9.
  • 27% of all grades achieved were grade 7 to 9, ensuring students gained access to the full range of A Levels and college courses..
