GCSE Results 2023

We are delighted to announce the remarkable success of Bishop Wand School in this year's GCSE examinations. 

Our dedicated students have demonstrated exceptional determination and unwavering commitment, resulting in outstanding exam results that stand as a testament to their tireless effort and resilience. We take immense pride in their achievements and acknowledge the distinct challenges they have triumphed over during their educational journey. 

Our headline figures underscore a significant accomplishment, as an impressive 89% of our students have achieved a grade of 4 or higher in their English GCSE, and a commendable 80% have reached the same benchmark in Mathematics. 

These results signify an increase compared to our 2019 outcomes, which have been used as a benchmark for this year's achievements. 

The students' success resonates with the words of Philippians 4:13 "I can do all this through him who gives me strength." The students' determination, coupled with the unwavering support of our staff, has indeed brought them to this point. 

By surmounting the challenges before them, our students have opened doors to the next chapter of their academic journey, whether within our Sixth Form or in the pursuit of further education and apprenticeship programs within our local area. 

In celebrating these exceptional results, we extend our deep appreciation to our dedicated teaching staff. Their tireless efforts have provided steadfast support and guidance, enabling our students to excel in their studies. Proverbs 22:6 reminds us of the significance of guidance: "Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old, they will not turn from it." 

Bishop Wand School's commitment extends beyond academic excellence, encompassing the holistic development of each student. We remain steadfast in our dedication to provide an exceptional education that equips our students with the skills, knowledge, and resilience they need to thrive in an ever-changing world. 

We extend our heartfelt congratulations to our students and their families for this remarkable achievement and s we embrace their successes, we wish you joy in your celebrations that are sure to follow.
