Our Level 2 BTEC results were again outstanding, with students celebrating a 100% pass rate. We are delighted that so many students received the BTEC Distinction*and Distinction grades, the equivalent of A*/A at GCSE. The results were stunning, with Business achieving 82%, Creative Digital Media 56%, Engineering 18%, Health and Social Care 37%, Hospitality 69%, and Sport 30% all at D*/D, demonstrating why we were awarded the National BTEC School of the Year for 2017.

The Grange School is pleased to celebrate another set of excellent Level 3 BTEC results. Once again, these results show the students to be working in the top 25% of students nationally for these qualifications. 

We are delighted to announce 100% Distinction* to Merit (equivalent A* to B at A Level) for our Level 3 Extended Diploma (3 A Level Equivalent) in Health and Social Care.

Our Health and Social Care students have been successful in progressing to universities to study Mental Health Nursing and Psychology or taking up employment with further training as health care professionals. Our students are to be commended for their hard work and success. A number of students have also achieved employment offers following excellent work experience with our partner employers.

Students studying our new Engineering BTEC Level 3 Foundation Diploma (1.5 A Level Equivalent) designed in partnership with local employers also did very well, 50% achieving Distinction and 75% achieving Merit. They have been a credit to themselves and the school.  Every student received glowing feedback from their work experience placements with a number receiving job offers and encouragement to apply for apprenticeships with some world renowned companies including Ultra Electronics, Curtiss-Wright, Peter Day and Signature TechnicAir to name but a few.

We are delighted with the success of all our students, and are particularly pleased that they all have progressed onto a career pathway of their choice. We wish them well in the future and look forward to hearing about their continued success. A big thank you must also go to the staff and parents without whose support and dedication these outstanding results would not have been possible.
