Exam Results

Sixth Form Results 2016

This year, students achieved the best results in the School’s history in the IB Diploma, for the 6th consecutive year, and with very strong A level results the students collectively achieved 62% A* - B Grades, 85% A - C, and 100% A* - E grades.

These results are consistent with last year and usually place the school in the top 100 state schools in the country for Post-16 Education (The Times) and demonstrate our commitment to high achievement and outstanding progress for all students.

Ms Kirstin Cardus, Headteacher commented ‘Our students have worked so hard to achieve outstanding results and we are extremely proud of them and would like to congratulate them all. They have been a super year group, we have always had high hopes for them and they have fulfilled all our expectations. With our best ever IB Diploma Results again this year, for the sixth consecutive year, it is a shame that the IB Diploma will no longer be an option for students at the School due to funding cuts from the Government and low student demand. This year was our final year of the IB Diploma and it is a real shame that students in the Canterbury district will no longer have access to such a highly prestigious qualification within the state sector.”

IB Diploma Results 2016 - Fantastic IB Results!

Barton Court Grammar School is celebrating the best ever IB results in the School’s history for the 6th consecutive year.

This year, 100% of students passed the IB Diploma with an average IB point score of 35.1. All students achieved the equivalent point scores of 3 A grades at A level and 98% achieved equivalent point scores to 3 A* grades at A level.

The school is delighted with some notable achievements for individual students. In particular 3 students this year achieved 40 or more IB Points, which is equivalent to 5.5 A*/B grades at A Level.

A2 Results 2016

Barton Court Grammar School is delighted with its fourth set of A2 results since 2008.

Traditionally the School has offered the IB Diploma qualification only and due to student demand and the school’s vision to offer a personalised curriculum at KS5 the School currently offers both A levels with the AQA Baccalaureate as well as the highly prestigious IB Diploma in the Sixth Form.

This year, students achieved 49% A*-B, 79% A* - C and 100% A* - E grades.

The school is delighted with some notable achievements for individual students with 12% achieving AAB or higher in facilitating subjects. 10% of students achieved 3 or more A*/A grades and 27% achieved 3 or more A*-B grades. 2 students secured a place at their first choice university to read Medicine.

GCSE Results 2016

Barton Court is celebrating another excellent set of GCSE results this year.

Results vary slightly from year to year depending on the cohort but we are delighted that as a school we are able to consistently maintain the high standards set in recent years. The students at Barton Court are just amazing and this is testament to the hard work and commitment of both our students and staff.

Students achieved 41% A*/A grades, 96% of students achieved A*-C grades in both English and Maths, 95.2% of students achieved 5+ A*-C grades including English and Maths and 80% achieved the English Baccalaureate.

Ms Kirstin Cardus, Headteacher commented ‘I am really delighted for all our students who have worked so hard to achieve these outstanding results. The GCSE examinations are not getting any easier and the majority of our students study the demanding academic curriculum that constitutes the English Baccalaureate. Students do not study GCSE equivalences. It is so rewarding for the students, staff and parents when all the students hard work is justly rewarded with an excellent set of results.”
