A-Level Results 2016

Two academic years after opening, North Bridge House Senior School and Sixth Form justified its Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ rating with an excellent first set of A-Level results and highly impressive value added.

With a 100% pass rate, our results saw many students exceed their original ALIS predictions and evidenced Ofsted’s observation that ‘students make well above expected levels of progress over time.’

Two of our particularly high-achieving students were Melina Pelling and Will Coffey. Melina was delighted with straight A grades in Maths, Chemistry and Biology and looking forward to a future in Medicine. Will gained straight As in Maths, Economics and Further Maths, with which he secured his place reading Economics at the University of Bristol.

67% of Maths and Further Maths candidates achieved an A Grade, as did 67% of Art candidates, highlighting the impressive measure of both academic and creative talent across the small cohort. Read more.

Prep School Results: 11+ and Common Entrance

Traditionally at our Prep School, girls are prepared for the 11+ and boys for Common Entrance at 13+, with all children achieving outstanding results and entry to some of the best Senior Schools in the country – often with scholarships.

Now that we have two established Senior School sites however, a number of pupils choose to continue their education at North Bridge House, and both girls and boys are welcomed into our popular Hampstead and Canonbury campuses upon reference from the Head Teacher.
