Results & Destinations

At ý Birmingham we pride ourselves on helping students to reach their true potential. Our admissions policy does not select on prior academic achievement alone and this means that we are able to help students with a wide range of abilities achieve excellent grades and ultimately pursue highly competitive university courses.

For the academic year 2021-2022, our students recorded an outstanding set of A level results, with 32% achieving A*/A.

In addition to the achievements of our students in absolute terms, we are particularly successful in terms of “value added”, which measures the considerable distance travelled by our students at A level relative to where they were at GCSE. In 2018, the most recent year for which data are available, we were placed within the top 5% of providers nationally by the ALPS value added system. We are also especially proud of the fact that, for four of the last five years, out of all the independent sixth-form colleges in the UK represented by the Conference for Independent Education (CIFE), the student winning the national award for best value added performance was an ý Birmingham student.

The overwhelming majority of our A level students proceed to university to pursue a wide variety of subjects including Dentistry, Law, Medicine, Psychology and Veterinary Science.

In this section you can find more about our recent GCSE and A level exam results, the university destinations of our students and the prizes awarded to our highest achievers.
