New GCSE's

A numerical grading system of 9-1 has replaced the current system of A*-G, with 9 as the highest achievable grade and 1 as the lowest (although there will also be a grade U for those who fail to achieve the minimum requirements for grade 1).

Grade 5 will be considered a ‘good pass’, with performance tables focusing on students achieving grades 9-5.

The old system takes a grade C as a benchmark for a ‘good pass’, but the new grade 5 will be equivalent to a low B or high C – thus a ‘good pass’ mark will become harder to achieve than previously.

The new system has been designed to reveal differences between candidates at the top end of the spectrum. The current top two grades (A* and A) will be replaced with three top grades (9,8 and 7).

Grade 9 is being referred to by some as an A**, as it will only be awarded to approximately the top 3%.

Gold Award

We have receieved a Gold Award. This shows that BritSom's supplementary school has well-established systems in place to ensure consistent good quality.


There are written plans, handbooks, and procedures so that when someone leaves, and a new person joins, the school routines will carry on.


The management committee meets regularly to plan and monitor the work of the school, and the minutes of their meetings  form much of the evidence.


The school provides evidence that children’s needs, progress and performance are assessed and monitored.





Working together for a better future.
