Blackfen School is a progressive and vibrant learning community that focuses on raising the aspirations and releasing the potential of every young person in our care. In 2016 we achieved 60% 5 A*-C including English and Mathematics at GCSE. Our flourishing mixed Sixth Form offers a wide range of courses at AS and A2 level, as well as vocational level 2 and 3 courses. Sixth form students achieved a 100% pass rate at A2 and over 54% of the grades awarded were at Grade A*-B. Ofsted graded the school as “good” and we are now looking to progress rapidly towards “outstanding”.
