4. Key Stage 2 results – not applicable
5. Key Stage 4 exam results for Bournville Secondary
We were very pleased with our headline figures.
- 66% of our students achieved a grade 4 or above in English and mathematics. The average for Birmingham schools was 59.4% and 63% nationally.
- 42% of our students achieved a grade 5 or above in English and mathematics. The average for Birmingham schools was 39.7% and 39.1% nationally.
- We are ambitious for our students and entered 42% for the suite of ‘Ebacc’ subjects. Nationally, on average, this figure was 34.9%.
However, there is always room for improvement as our progress 8 measure (unvalidated) of -0.46 is below national averages and not an improvement on our 2016 measure.

12. The school’s ethos and values:
Bournville is a school with a proud history and distinct tradition. Before Bournville became a comprehensive school in the 1970s it was previously two sibling grammar schools: Bournville Girls Grammar School and Bournville Grammar-Technical School For Boys, previously known as Bournville Boys Technical School. The technical school for boys, the city’s first technical school, opened in October 1955. The pioneering technical school later combined with the girls’ grammar school on the same site. The boys’ school was organised along ‘Public School’ lines with four houses—Belmont, Griffin, Manor and Woodlands.
We stay true to our traditions and roots at Bournville –our students wear their blazers and ties with pride. We have a proud musical and sporting history and we are unashamedly ambitious for all our students. Every child that passes through the Bournville gates is a ‘Griffinian’, following in the footsteps of thousands of ‘Old Griffinians’ who have walked our schools corridors and succeeded in our classrooms. The Griffin is the symbol of our school and a unifying force in binding us all along our shared mission and values.
Bournville School aims to develop articulate, resilient and ambitious students, regardless of background, with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to excel in modern Britain.
Our Core Values and Beliefs:
- Excellence – We strive for the highest quality to ensure excellent outcomes
- Dedication – We believe there is dignity in hard work and effort
- Ambition – We want the very best for our students
- Integrity – We believe in openness and transparency
- Tradition – We believe in old fashioned manners, courtesy and respect
