Clearly these excellent results have not been achieved without a huge amount of hard work and commitment from both our students and staff, and we congratulate them on their achievements. Nearly all of our Year 11 students are staying on into BRGS Sixth Form and these successes should enable them to approach their A level studies with real confidence and self-belief.”
