Birkenhead High School Academy celebrates fabulous GCSE successes

Students and staff at Birkenhead High School Academy are celebrating as 89% of students gained at least five A* to C grades in their GCSEs with a third of grades being A*/A. 12 students proudly achieved 8 or more A*/A grades each! With a clear focus on ensuring all our girls make exceptional progress, BHSA has seen the majority making more than expected progress and a third of students at BHSA achieved over a grade higher according to national measures – this is outstanding!

Exceptional results were the order of the day for several pupils, including Ellen Bridson who achieved ten A*/A grades, said:

“I’m absolutely thrilled! All I can say is that revision works! I’m going to take History, Geography, Spanish and Politics at our 6th form”.

Lucy Webster who also achieved straight A*/As moved to BHSA from another school in Year 9: “I’ve felt included in all that’s going on at BHSA from day one. My hard work has paid off and I am continuing into the 6th form to study Chemistry, Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Spanish.”

Chris Mann, outgoing Principal of Birkenhead High School Academy, said: “We are so proud of the girls and their GCSEs, which are the result of focused effort by them and their teachers. At BHSA we have high expectations and the girls have risen to meet them, and more, again this year!”

If you would like to join our highly successful sixth form in September there is still time! Please contact the Registrar, Victoria Emmitt on 0151-652-5777.
