At Bethany School we are justifiably proud of the results achieved by our pupils year on year. We applaud the achievements of our dedicated teachers and committed pupils.

Oliver Khan secured a Management and Hospitality apprenticeship with Red Carnation Hotels,Bethany draws its pupils at all levels of the School from a deliberately broad ability range. We believe that all pupils who are capable of obtaining good, national qualifications should be allowed to do so. We also believe it is important that our results are viewed in this light.

2018 A level results

Bethany School prides itself on providing excellent preparation for A level examinations and university entry. This personalised and individual approach has again been rewarded with pupils securing places at their first choice universities.

The individual support and guidance given to each pupil has ensured a significant number of unconditional offers at prestigious universities. Whilst some in the national press have raised concerns about the increasing number of unconditional offers, at Bethany School we believe that this has been an excellent development. It firmly reinforces Bethany’s ethos of placing the child’s wellbeing first.

2018 GCSE results

Bethany School provides excellent preparation for GCSE examinations and for subsequent life in our successful Sixth Form. At Bethany, we put the child at the heart of every decision; this personalised and individual approach has again been rewarded with pupils achieving GCSE grades exceeding predictions in 2018. This has resulted in our pupils, whose academic profile is in line with the national average, achieving results far above the national norms.

The support and guidance given to each pupil has ensured that everyone has achieved to the best of their ability by being nurtured, encouraged and challenged. Our educational philosophy focuses on developing the ‘Virtue of Learning’ – lifelong learning habits which have led to excellent individual outcomes, including a number of pupils who have achieved five or more top (7-9) grades.
