Bedford Girls’ School is proud of its excellent 2023 results across the IB Diploma Programme, A Levels and GCSE examinations. 

78% of the entries have been awarded A*-B (combined A Level and IB Diploma).

We are so proud of the students, who despite disruption during the pandemic years have thrown themselves into the rigour of Sixth Form and worked hard to achieve their aspirations. They have made the most of their final two years in school, both in and outside of the classroom and leave BGS as capable, confident young adults ready for the exciting opportunities ahead. 

Our IB cohort performed extremely well achieving an average score of 38 points (against a worldwide average of 30), with over 20% of the cohort achieving above 40 points which is outstanding.

GCSE results were also impressive, with two-thirds of entries achieving grades 9 to 7 and 21% marked at grade 9. This cohort has demonstrated remarkable resilience and dedication, culminating in impressive results that underscore their commitment.

The school values all of the diverse journeys that students choose to take with their qualifications. The rich and varied mix of further study courses is testament to this:Medicine, International Disaster Management & Humanitarian Response, Geography with Business, Mechanical Engineering, Politics with International Relations, Physiotherapy, Philosophy and Fine Art with Computational Arts. Destinations include Bath, Birmingham, Bristol, Durham, Exeter, Kings College London, Leicester, Loughborough, Manchester, Newcastle, Oxford, University Arts London and Warwick to name a few.

Mrs Gemma Gibson, Headmistress of Bedford Girls' School, commented “I am sure you will join me in congratulating them and wishing them great success in the next stage of their education. I would like to thank all of their teachers and the wider team at BGS for supporting, guiding and mentoring them through their Sixth Form studies. I have no doubt that this cohort will make a difference to the world around them."
