A Level Results 2017

Birkenhead High School Academy is delighted to announce another highly successful year for our sixth form students! We had 249 entries at KS5 with a fabulous 96% attaining A-level or BTEC equivalent; over half of all grades were A*-B, and 29% of all grades were A*-A!

Our staff work tirelessly to ensure that students study the right courses for their own individual strengths and these results show that our sixth formers are securing the best futures for themselves, whatever career path they wish to take.

Student Lily-Maia Baraclan-Smith, who achieved straights As in all her subjects said: “I’ve really come into my own since attending BHSA Sixth Form. I love the school! I am so pleased with my results and very excited to be going on to study History at King’s College, London.”

Olivia Lawrenson also achieved outstanding A-level results: “I’m so proud and happy with my results and now I can go on to study Law at university! Thank you to all the staff at BHSA who have stretched my learning so that I could achieve so highly!”

Principal, Rebecca Mahony said: “I am absolutely thrilled with the performance of our students! Their effort and motivation have ensured wonderful outcomes, with most going on to study at the university of their choice on diverse courses such as Medicine, Veterinary Science, Film, Prosthetics, Fine Art and Classics. I am very proud of our students’ achievements, and of the staff who have helped them so much. I wish all our leavers every success for their futures!”

Birkenhead High School Academy celebrates another year of GCSE successes


With 12 students being awarded a full sweep of A/A* grades and a fifth of all entries attaining the top grades of A/A*, staff and students are celebrating another year of successful GCSE results at Birkenhead High School Academy.

Despite fears nationally over Maths and English being “more challenging” and the new 1 – 9 grading system, 65% of BHSA students attained standard passes in 5 or more GCSE subjects and over a third attained strong passes.  BHSA’s English GCSE results were particularly impressive with the new national progress measure showing our students achieving a whole grade higher at BHSA than at other schools nationally.

With a strong focus on high expectations and adding value, we are delighted that BHSA’s overall progress figure shows all Year 11 students achieved on average nearly a quarter of a grade higher at BHSA than at other schools nationally.   Well done to all girls receiving their GCSE results at BHSA today.


Pooja Ward who achieved all A*/A grades and 8/9 in English and Maths said “I’m so happy with my results! I’m staying at BHSA for 6th form and am studying Maths, Biology and Chemistry.”

And Georgia Sweeney, who also received outstanding results, said: “I’m really grateful to all the teachers for helping me to get the results I wanted! I’m staying on to study English, History and Spanish A-levels.”

Twins Hannah and Philippa Carter also achieved top grades and are looking forward to continuing into the Sixth Form and studying Maths, Physics, Biology and Chemistry.

Rebecca Mahony, Principal of Birkenhead High School Academy, said: “We are so proud of the girls and their achievements. This is the result of their hard work and commitment, the outstanding efforts of their teachers and the continued support from parents. At BHSA we have high expectations and the girls have risen to meet them again this year!”
