GCSE Results 2020
Many congratulations to Y11 Beechwood students for an amazing set of results this year. The headline results are 98% Grade 9-4 (national average 78%), 29% of grades were at Grade 8 or 9, and 48% of grades at Grade 9-7 (national average 27%). Their perseverance and fortitude in lockdown and then waiting for results is to be much admired. So many students have fulfilled their potential, but special mention goes to Margaret Hobart with 3 Grade 9s, 5 Grade 8s and a Grade 7, Jerry Wang with 4 Grade 9s and 5 Grade 8s, Josh Turner with 4 Grade 9s, 3 Grade 8s and 2 Grade 7s, Callum Hanks with 5 Grade 9s, 3 Grade 8s and a Grade 7 and Oli Rizvi with 5 Grade 9s, 4 Grade 8s and a Grade 7. Best wishes to all our Y11 students and their September destinations either here at Beechwood Sixth Form or on other courses.

In our small classes, teachers inspire students to excel in what they are good at and build confidence in areas they find difficult, from the youngest child in the Preparatory School through to our oldest Senior School students.

Our Registrar can be contacted on registrar@beechwood.org.uk and I would be delighted to welcome you to Beechwood so you can see for yourself what a wonderful school this is.
