Sixth Form students and staff at The Brunts Academy have worked incredibly hard to ensure the best opportunities for achievement for all. In doing so, students have once again been highly successful in securing places to a wide range of Higher Education institutions to further their studies and achieve their long term ambitions. University destinations include; The University of Warwick to study Computer Science, Kings College London to study Nutrition and Dietetics, The University of Sheffield to study Politics and Economics and The University of Leeds to study Advanced Psychology. In addition, several students have secured Higher Apprenticeships and employment with organisations such as Laing O’Rourke, Gleades and Nottinghamshire Police.
Our students have performed exceptionally well with a 100% pass rate, an increase in the number of students achieving A* – B and A* – C grades and further increases in overall grades for both academic and vocational qualifications.
Daniel Freeman who achieved Grades A*, A*, A* in Computer Science, Maths and Physics and who will be studying Computer Science at the University of Warwick said “I literally could not be happier – these results have definitely exceeded my expectations.”

I am once again delighted that through the endeavour and ambition of our students and staff, we at The Brunts Academy can be extremely proud of the achievements of our students. We wish them every success as they embark upon the next stage of their journeys.
Carl Atkin, Headteacher commented “As part of the Evolve Trust, our vision is to open minds, creating opportunities for all to believe in themselves, achieve their potential and develop the skills needed to succeed and enjoy life”.
“Brunts is extremely proud of our students’ successes and how hard staff have worked to ensure future student destinations are secured. The increased numbers going to university over the last few years shows how students at Brunts make fantastic progress and we wish them all the best for the future. Further increases in both academic and vocational grades on previous years is extremely rewarding for students and staff, living the values of the Evolve Trust – particularly endeavour, ambition and resilience!”
