Science at The Bulmershe School

Here at the Bulmershe School the Science Department is large and dynamic. We put the students at the centre of all we do enabling them to take responsibility for their achievements. We offer a range of courses, from year 7 to A-level, to suit the needs of our students and our long experience in delivering these courses means that every student can be successful.


The Science Department is rightfully proud of the success of its students which was reflected in 2013 with over 70% of our A-level students going on to gain University places and over 80% of our GCSE students gaining 2 A*-C grades, 50% of which were at the highest grades.


According to the Ofsted data dashboard we are in the top 20% of schools in all categories, shared with only 4 other schools in Wokingham, Reading and Bracknell.
