Inspiring a love of learning

“Inspiring a love of learning”

‘The lessons and the teachers are really good and I’ve made so many more friends since starting the sixth form’ Emily, Year 12

‘I’ve been able to achieve a level of independence but still rely on the support of staff I know when I’ve needed it’ Beth, Year 13

‘To begin with I was nervous about meeting new people but everyone has been welcoming. The subjects I chose are right for me and the teachers are helpful. Coming here was the right decision’ A new student who started in Yr 12

“I taught in several schools and I was only blessed with sons but I firmly believe that if I had a daughter I would want her to go to this school because I am aware at first hand of the dedication of all of its staff to the care and education of the girls. This school does realise that it is precious cargo that it carries.” A former teacher

Exam Performance 2016


We were pleased to receive our 2016 GCSE examination results.  This year 72% of Year 11 girls achieved 5+A*-C grades including English and Mathematics, with 82% achieving 5+A*-C.  Eighteen girls achieved at least eight A and A* grades.  The progress measures show 91% of girls made 3 levels progress in English and 75% in maths, with 58% making 4 levels progress in English and 37% in maths.  40% of students achieved the English Baccalaureate measure.  We are awaiting the government’s RAISEonline statistics (due to be published in early December) to show our performance in relation to national data.

A Level

At A Level 99% of Year 13 girls in the Joint Sixth Form achieved grades A*-E; with 77% achieving A*-C and 52% A*-B.  The vast majority of girls gained places at their first place universities.  Approximately 44% of students from the Joint Sixth Form gained places at Russell Group Universities.

GCSEs 2015

During the course of the last school year we learned that our 2015 GCSE exam results placed Beverley High School in the top 10% of schools nationally for attainment and progress and we were awarded two SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards. The awards recognised that Beverley High School was in the top 10% of non-selective schools nationally for high attainment and in the top 10% of all schools nationally for value-added progress.  This year 74% of Year 11 girls achieved a Grade A-C in both English and Maths, our Attainment 8 score is provisionally 54.35.  At the time of writing we await our Progress 8 score.  There has been a change in what schools report.  Last year’s progress score was the best in the school’s history.  Progress in English and Humanities was particularly outstanding.
