Student Outcomes

Exam Results 2023

Baycroft congratulates the class of 2023 on their exceptionally hard work and commitment, which has achieved excellent results, despite the disruption they have experienced to their education from the pandemic.
Our students achieved accreditation through a variety of different means which include; GCSEs, GCSE equivalent Gateway certificates and diplomas and pre-GCSE (Entry Level) Certificates of Achievement. As of 2023 all students secured further education placements.
Here is a link to the national qualifications framework:




There were 34 Year 11 students in the cohort, achieving accreditations. Of these, 94% achieved a qualification in English, Maths and Science. A further 3 students gained English results at Grade 4-5 in GCSE along with Maths accreditation.
All students had the opportunity to achieve up to 7 GCSE or ½ GCSE equivalents at Level 1 and Level 2. The reason why some vocational subjects are ½ rather than full GCSEs is due to the variations in guided learning hours in very practical aspects.
12 students achieved a GCSE Maths grade from 1 to 4.

9 students were awarded a Level 1 Science certificate, equivalent to a full GCSE. Remaining students achieved transferable unit awards at GCSE level. 

In Art and Photography GCSEs, results range from Grades 1 to 5, 56% of the students entered for Art achieving grade 4 or 5, reflecting the wide range of students able to access and be successful in these courses. 

11 students achieved a full certificate in Skills for Sport qualification (1 GCSE equivalent)  


Other vocational qualifications certificates successfully achieved by our students included: 

Skills for Independence  


Retail skills
Child Care Skills for Art and Design – Level 1
Skills in Land Based Sector
Travel and Tourism
Performing Arts
Building and Construction 

One of the best indicators of the quality of our work with students is how well prepared they are for their lives beyond Baycroft. Here is information on the destinations of our leavers last year (NB: one student is equivalent to 2.9%):

The following data sets are those which we are required to publish and are obviously intended for mainstream schools; as such they do not fully reflect the progress our pupils make, therefore we have included further information on progress and attainment below. The attainment and progress of our Young People does vary from year to year depending on the Individual Special Educational Needs with which they present. Please consider our cohorts are very small when reading this data. Finally, please use the further information below to see the full achievements of our students. Please note for the Year 2020 the government has announced that it will not publish any school or college level performance data based on tests, assessments or exams for 2020.
