Introduction from the Headteacher

Welcome to The Brunts Academy.  We are proud to be the lead academy within The Evolve Trust – a group of academies that work together to help all students achieve their very best outcomes through strong partnership and collaborative learning.

We believe in opening minds, creating opportunities for all to believe in themselves, so that students and staff achieve their potential and develop the skills needed to succeed and enjoy life.

We expect students to work hard at the Academy, but we also place importance on greater levels of involvement with academy life – striving to develop qualities of self-confidence, leadership, responsibility, teamwork, respect and selfawareness.  Visitors often comment on the positive atmosphere and strong sense of purpose that exists in the Academy.  All of this is only possible by working in close partnership with parents to ensure each individual student receives personalised support.  It is this that has resulted in us being a nationally recognised Achievement for All academy.

Brunts Academy is proud of the success our students have achieved year on year and, through our constant focus on teaching and learning, we see our students develop into lifelong learners whilst enjoying their time with us.

We look forward to welcoming you into our Academy to see the great experiences that happen here and how your child can be part of our learning journey.
