Exam Results 2018

One of the reasons for Balshaw’s continuing success, is the examination results that our students attain. It is particularly important to note, that in the majority of government’s measures, Balshaw’s is on or above national averages of attainment and progress from students’ starting points. That means that whatever the level of prior attainment, Balshaw’s will do its best to ensure we maximise the progress of all our students.
