Outcomes at Bedale High School

Since 2017 our GCSE outcomes have improved every year. We have worked really hard to improve the quality of our curriculum and our teaching and learning (as acknowledged in our most recent Ofsted Report from January 2019). This continues to be a focus through the targeted training of staff and productive partnerships with other schools and organisations. For instance, we continue to be members of the Yorkshire Schools’ Teaching Alliance.

A lot of work has gone into the development of a clear assessment for learning structure through our 3 year GCSE programme. Students are taught how to revise and also given the opportunity to attend a variety of extra intervention and revision sessions.

Here are some key headlines from our last GCSE results in 2019:

  • French exam results are in the highest 20% of schools nationally
  • Geography exam GCSE results are in the highest 20% of schools nationally
  • Humanities exam results are in the top 20% of schools nationally
  • English Baccalaureate exam progress is in the top 20% of schools nationally
  • EBacc Maths exam progress is in the top 20% of schools nationally
  • EBacc Languages progress is in the top 20% of schools nationally
  • EBacc Science progress is in the top 20% of schools nationally
