In 2016, results improved significantly at Bristnall Hall Academy building on the tremendous improvements made in 2015. This is evidence of the excellent provision students continue to receive at the academy.

These improvements were due to the hard work and perseverance of students and staff, outstanding levels of teaching and support and the strong collaboration between parents, carers, students and the academy.

For the most able students there were exceptional results in 2016.  Many students completed Year 11 with outstanding portfolios of A* and A grades which will give them amazing opportunities in the future.

From 2017, GCSE English and Mathematics grades will be numerical instead of letters.  In 2018 and 2019, more subjects will have their grades changed from letters to numbers.  The video below explains the new GCSE grading system:
