16-18 Performance Data – St Bonaventure’s School
As a 6th Form we aim to help our students achieve the very best results possible, on the courses most appropriate to them. Our average grade is a C at A-Level for students completing 3 A-Levels with us and our BTEC outcomes are very good on the new, more rigorous courses, with an average grade of Merit+.
We are very proud of our high retention rates (Over 94% – Well above National Average) and our 100% Progression Rate. 90% of our students leave us to go to university, with the rest either gaining places on apprenticeships, traineeships or entering the employment sector. We have a small number of students taking GCSE English & Maths post-16 and our results hugely exceed the National average.
We also take a small number of students straight into Year 13 in order to provide them the opportunity to complete their A-Level study. This is very much how our catholic ethos as a 6th Form works in practice. Our community of support, respect, care and friendship is what drives us to do all we can to help our students through education, not only as academics but as active citizens.
