Our Latest Results

We are exceptionally proud of the BC6F results, not just this year, but over the past four years, which have put us in the top 25% of 6th Forms in Nottinghamshire.

Our students have demonstrated a level of dedication to their courses which has gone above and beyond the expectations of previous years due to national impact of Covid. Students have benefited from being in a small 6th Form where the potential impact of Covid has been reduced by small class sizes (on average 8 in a class). All BC6F students receive a Chromebook as their main learning resource at the start of Year 12 which has facilitated learning both in College and at home.

Since 2018, our average grade has risen from a C- to a B.

This year:

  • 86% of grades achieved by BC6F students were A* to C grades
  • 70% of grades were A* to B
  • 42% of grades were A* or A.
  • 10% of our students achieved grades A*/A in all their subjects

As a result of these outcomes, 87% of our students have gone on to their first-choice destinations or courses after 6th Form, including the Universities of Nottingham, Leeds, Sheffield, Warwick and Birmingham to study subjects including Architecture, Biomedical Sciences, Geography, Business, and Art, to name just a few.

Particular Areas of Success:

  • 100% A- A* grades in French
  • 83% of Art students achieved A-A* (exceeding their predictions and targets)
  • 67% A-A* in Geography (33% higher than predicted)
  • 100% A*-C in Sociology, Physics, Photography, IT, Media, History, Geography, Further Maths, French, English Literature, Computing, Business & Art
  • IT exceeded target grades with 86% achieving Distinction (D)-D* (targeted 14%)

"My time at Bramcote college was not like the average college years that most students experience, due to a certain pandemic. However, I feel I was still able to have a great couple of years and this wouldn’t have been possible without my friends and the teachers around me.
As BC6F is a small college I feel as though this benefitted me individually cause I was able to get help whenever I needed it and it allowed for me to approach teachers more easily. I will be forever grateful for my time at Bramcote college."
Art A Level – A
Photography A Level – B

"Coming to Bramcote College Sixth Form gave me the opportunity to meet new people and make new friends, as well opening new doors for my future. I knew University wasn't where I wanted to go and Bramcote supported me with that decision, helping me to use and develop my skills and I'm now a member of staff at BC!"

Sport – Double Distinction *
Business Studies A Level – A*

"I had a very good experience at BC6F, the teachers were always willing to help and support students
I liked how closely knit together the college was. This benefited me as I felt I could ask any question and seek support where needed.
I don’t think I would’ve got the grades I got if it wasn’t for the teachers going the extra mile!
Also shoutout to the sport department, you absolute legends!!"
