Secondary schools celebrate sixth form results

teens with a-level results

Delighted students from schools across Bracknell Forest are celebrating personal success as they receive their final grades at Key Stage 5.

The overall A-level pass rate in Bracknell Forest Council's schools was a noteworthy 97.7%, with 77.3% of all entries at an impressive A*-C. Schools across the borough are celebrating the high proportions of grades attained at A and A*, almost a third at 29.6%

These results are particularly pleasing as this year’s cohort have undertaken formal external examinations for the first time since 2019, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The class of ’22 have worked with determination and resilience against a backdrop of continued disruption as a result of the pandemic. Ofqual, the regulatory body for examinations, stated that the grading approach this year would recognise the disruption experienced by these students.

Grainne Siggins, Executive Director of People, said:

“Huge congratulations to our young people, their teachers and their families, who have been rewarded for all their efforts and hard work.

“I would like to thank all the school staff who work tirelessly to support our students to achieve these fantastic results.”

Cllr Gareth Barnard, Executive Member for Children, Young People and Learning, said:

“It is so wonderful to hear what our A-level and level 3 students have achieved this year.

“Our amazing young people have done incredibly well this year. We are so proud of them at all ability levels.

“We continue to work with schools and help pupils towards their career aspirations, and next steps, whatever they may be. I wish all this year’s students every success for the future.”
