"Particularly impressive is that over half of students achieved at least the equivalent of two grade As in Science subjects.

"These results bode well as students prepare for our Sixth Form, where they choose short enrichment courses alongside A Levels to explore beyond their academic subjects – such as code-breaking, photography or sports coaching.

"Bedales students can therefore look forward to an enjoyable Sixth Form experience as well as being well prepared for accessing the most demanding universities and careers”.
