Earlier this month, our school (South Bromsgrove High School) was named as one of the top 100 non-selective state schools in 2015/16.
73% of pupils achieved 5 or more high level GCSE grades and 51% achieved these in the core subjects that the Government is promoting with the English Baccalaureate qualification. The English baccalaureate is for students who receive a C grade or higher in English, two sciences, a language, and a humanities subject. Due to this, we received a letter from the schools minister, Nick Gibb, who recognised us as being in one of the top 100 schools in the country. The school were proud of this result because as a school, the teachers try to offer a balanced curriculum, so interests can match to as many students as possible.
