A-LEVEL / BTEC Results 2023


A-level and BTEC students at Ernest Bevin Academy in Tooting eagerly arrived to collect their results starting at 8 am this morning!

We take pride in announcing that our results in the A to C range are considerably better than pre-pandemic levels (2018/2019). Additionally, when compared to national results, our A*-A outcomes have shown great improvement.

Many of our students have achieved their expected grades, with several exceeding the anticipated outcomes.

Our top achievers have obtained A* and A grades in their A-levels, and Distinctions in our BTEC Engineering cohort.

As our students embark on the next stages of their academic and vocational journeys, we take great pride in announcing that our students have secured places at prestigious institutions including Russell Group universities, the University of London, the University of Bath, Brunel University, Kingston University and the University of the West of England, among others. They will be pursuing a wide array of subjects including Physics and Astronomy, Mechanical Engineering, Mathematics, History, Computer Science, English and Creative Writing, Accountancy and Finance, as well as Sport and Exercise Psychology.

Principal Tracy Dohel had this to say:

“I applaud the resilience and determination of the Year 13 students. They have overcome the most challenging of circumstances, including not being able to sit public exams in Year 11. Throughout this time, they have remained focused and are now deservedly reaping the rewards. Congratulations to them and their teachers, and I wish them all the best for their future success.”

GCSE Results


Today, Year 11 students at Ernest Bevin Academy in Tooting eagerly awaited their results as they formed queues, starting at 9am this morning. 

Many faces were filled with both excitement and apprehension. We are thrilled to announce that our students have performed well in their exams. Many have exceeded their expected outcomes, and others have continued to shine in line with expectations. 

Tracy Dohel, Principal, shared these thoughts: 

It’s wonderful to hear about the positive outcomes and achievements of the students at Ernest Bevin in their GCSE results. Overcoming adversity and surpassing expectations is a true testament to their hard work, dedication, and resilience. The fact that top grades have increased and bucked the national trend showcases the students’ abilities and also underlines the dedication of the teachers, staff, and the entire school community in nurturing a conducive learning environment.” 

Celebrating these triumphs is essential, as it not only boosts the students’ confidence but also serves as an inspiration for others to strive for excellence. 

As last year, numerous students chose to continue their educational journeys with Ernest Bevin, and we are overwhelmed by their trust in our teaching staff to help them flourish and be the best they can be.

Exam success at Ernest Bevin College Summer 2021


Ernest Bevin College is pleased to report some outstanding achievements by its students in their A levels, GCSEs and vocational qualifications this summer.

In Year 13, three students gained A* in all their A Level subjects and three students scored top grades in their Engineering course.

Students have secured destinations across a range of universities, including UCL, Kings and Queen Mary reading courses such as Medicine, Engineering and Computer Science.

Our Year 11 students were delighted with their results with many securing top grades and being able to move on to their destination courses.

This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher assessed grades, against a national standard and approved and awarded by the exam boards. The government is not publishing performance data for any schools or colleges this year due to the varying impact of the pandemic.

We are immensely proud of all the work and achievements of our students, especially after such a difficult and disrupted year. Our teachers have worked tirelessly to ensure students are all able to progress onto further education and study, and we look forward to seeing what they will achieve in the future.



GCSE & A Level Results Summer 2020

Despite the disruption that Covid-19 brought to schools and the cancellation of an entire exam season it is important to recognise pupil’s success and celebrate the progress the school is making.

Centre Assessed Grades (CAGs) put forward by teaching staff were agreed to be used by the government as the fairest way to award grades in the absence of exams for both A-Level and GCSE students.

GCSE = 186 Students

Compared with the national average for boys, in state funded schools, Ernest Bevin College has again produced an excellent set of GCSE exam results. Entering nearly twice as many boys for the Ebacc (GCSEs in English, Maths, Science, History or Geography and a Language) as the national average, is also a fact to be proud of.

A positive progress 8 score of 0.19, and over half the year group achieving a grade 5 in maths and English.
