Public examination results, set out below, are placed within the broader context of Bedalians' overall achievements. We do this because our aims are ambitious, both academically - "to develop inquisitive thinkers with a love of learning who cherish independent thought" - and, more broadly, in terms of students' personal development.
Having said this, our desire to develop inquisitive, independent-minded people with a good breadth of interests is no substitute for strong academic achievement, reflected in measurable ways - public exam results, access to higher education and successful careers. The intention with the information published here is to give prospective and current students and parents a better sense of Bedalians' various trajectories - at school and in their subsequent university and professional careers.
