Celebrating Success at Brentside 2023
A Level and BTEC Results 2023
We are delighted to congratulate Brentside High School’s Year 13 students on their excellent examination results. Today’s results reflect the resilience and determination with which students have responded to the challenges created by the pandemic and reward the excellent progress they have made throughout their courses. With a national return to pre-pandemic grading, we are proud to be able to celebrate the successes of our students, many of whom have secured the top grades.
Achievement is strong across both A Levels and the vocational BTEC qualifications. As examples of this, approaching 20% of all A Level grades were A*/A and almost half of all grades were A*-B. In the vocational courses, 60% of all grades were Distinction*/Distinction and 89% Distinction*- Merit. An impressive 66% of our students achieved at least one of these top grades.
Julia Bosher, Head of Sixth Form, said “I am immensely proud of our students’ achievements throughout their time in Sixth Form. I wish every one of them great success in whatever path they choose for their future and look forward to hearing from them in the years to come.”
Hider Mahdi, Assistant Headteacher, said “Another year of great results! Students have experienced their own challenges on their journey through Sixth Form and have engaged in a breadth of extra-curricular opportunities to maximise their achievements and to prepare them for future success. Congratulations to all our students for the wide range of exciting destinations they have secured including university degrees, apprenticeships and employment. I would like to publicly acknowledge and thank our highly invested staff and families for supporting our students to achieve these exceptional results and excellent progression routes.”
Examples of the many individual success stories are: Emilia (A*A*A*A), Aryan (A*A*A*), Somaya (A*AAA), Walada (A*AAA), Aafreen (A*A*AA), Mohamad (AAAA), Anjali (A*AAAB), Arshiya (AAAB), Borna (AAAC), Alicja (A*ABB), Kamil (A*ABB), Hafsa (Di*Di*Di* B), Sanjay (Di*Di*Di A), Priya (Di*Di*D B), Abdulhai (Di*Di*D B), Najah (Di*Di*D B), David (Di*Di*Di C).
Charlotte Hames, Headteacher, said, “It is both inspiring and rewarding to see our students achieve the grades that they have worked so hard for and that they deserve. We are proud of ALL of our Year 13 students and thank all those who have guided and supported them. Well done to our Class of 2023. We wish you all the best in the next stage of your journey and look forward to hearing of your successes.”

Our students have demonstrated resilience, commitment, and determination in the way in which they have approached their studies, despite the challenges posed by the impact of the global pandemic.
Charlotte Hames, Headteacher, said, “I am delighted for our students and so proud of them. These achievements would not have been possible without the hard work, talent and determination of our wonderful young people. I would also like to thank our parents and carers for working in partnership with the school over the years, and our dedicated staff, who have guided, supported, motivated and inspired our students on their journey to success.”
To our students, we look forward to welcoming you back in September as you embark on your Sixth Form courses, with all the excitement that comes from specialising in the subjects you are most passionate about and from the increased independence and supported challenge that Sixth Form life brings. We are confident that you will go on to mirror this year’s fantastic A Level and BTEC results, where approaching 20% of all A Level grades were A*/A and almost half of all grades were A*-B. In the vocational courses, 60% of all grades were Distinction*/Distinction and 89% Distinction*- Merit. An impressive 66% of our students achieved at least one of these top grades. We know that you will flourish through the additional opportunities that our students access at Brentside, alongside their chosen courses. To those of you who are moving on to specialise in a college vocational course, apprenticeship or training programme, we wish you the very best for the future and look forward to hearing of your success.
