Exam Results

Sixth Form Results 2017

Barton Court is celebrating excellent A level results this summer.

Overall, the % of A levels grades being awarded A*-B has leapt by over 5% to 55% and there also has been a significant increase in students achieving an A* grade. The pass rate was 100%.

These results are all the more impressive for the fact over half of the grades this year were from the new more rigorous A level qualifications.

Mr Macaulay, Head of School 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 brilliant year group, the school has always had high hopes for them and they have fulfilled all our expectations. The A level results are an improvement from last year and usually place the School in the Top 100 state schools in the country for Post-16 Education (Source: The Times) These results will help to transform the lives of our students and allow them to attend some of the most prestigious universities in the UK and overseas.”

The school is delighted with some notable achievements for individual students with 12% achieving AAB or higher in facilitating subjects. 16% of students achieved 2 or more A*/A grades and 44% achieved 3 or more A*-B grades.

Particular successes include Jessica Grynfield who has successfully gained a place to read English Literature at the University of Cambridge with a fantastic set of results – A*A*AA. Jessica has been a leading light in the English department this year and her success is very well deserved for such a gifted student who has combined natural flair with consistent hard work throughout her A level studies.

Another highly talented student, Blake Davies will be commencing his studies of Mathematics at the University of Warwick, a highly regarded Russell Group university, following his success in achieving A* grades in Mathematics, Further Mathematics, and Physics, as well as an A grade in Music.

Finally, Kelly Roy, who joined Barton Court at the start of Y12 from Herne Bay High School has achieved a fantastic set of results, A in Biology, B’s in Chemistry and Psychology and an A in the EPQ. Kelly has made fantastic progress since joining the school, all due to her hard work and determination. Kelly is now looking forward to studying Biology at the University of York.

We wish all students every success for the future.

A2 Summary Results 2017

GCSE Results 2017

Barton Court is celebrating another excellent set of GCSE results this year. 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 47% A*/A grades (including 7+ in the new English and Mathematics GCSEs). This represents a significant increase of 5% from 2016.

97% of students achieved 5 A*-C grades including both English and Maths at grade 4 or higher and 71% achieved the English Baccalaureate.

Mr Ian Macaulay, Head of School commented “I am really delighted for all our students who have worked so hard to achieve these outstanding results. Students this year had to cope with demands of new tougher GCSEs in English and Mathematics and the majority of our students also gained the demanding English Baccalaureate. Despite this, they have excelled and should be justly proud. It was fantastic to see so many pleased and excited young faces collect their results this morning, we look forward to welcoming the majority of them back to Barton Court in September for another 2 years of successful study.”

The school is delighted with some notable achievements for individual students with 19 students (16%) achieving an amazing 10 or more straight A*/A/ 7+ grades whilst over 50% of students achieved 5 or more A*/A/7+ passes. There are too many students to mention individually!

“The School would like to thank all staff for their hard work and all parents and Governors for their continued support without which such excellent results and student achievement would not be possible.”
