No matter how little you think you have, no matter what challenges you face in your life, always know it is possible. All you have to do is trust god and put in the work. “

Beths Grammar School is known for the exciting, purposeful and vibrant community it fosters for students, which challenges and supports them to fulfil their academic potential, whilst creating a generation of leaders and well-rounded individuals who can perform at the height of their ambition.

Central to the school’s success is its holistic approach to education in developing the whole individual which combines high academic performance with wider enrichment and pastoral support delivered through its wide-ranging sporting and music offer, as well as through its supportive and stretching house system.

Richard Blyghton, Headteacher at Beths Grammar School, said:

“We are very proud of all our students and the GCSE results they have achieved, which are hugely deserved.  We are proud of their academic standards which will provide a robust starting point for their A level studies. The commitment, resilience and spirit they have shown over the past two years has been inspirational and their results in the first public examinations for three years are testament to this. We look forward to welcoming them alongside other high performing students from across South London and North Kent into our remarkable Sixth Form community.

“Not only are we celebrating the high academic performances of our students today, but all the other excellent achievements they have enjoyed during their time with us, be that through sports, music, languages, or through our house system and student leadership opportunities.

“I would like to thank all our students, their families, our staff and the wider school community for their ongoing support and we look forward to seeing our students progress on to the next stage of their education as they continue to fulfil their potential.”
