The Brunts Academy, lead academy of The Evolve Trust, is celebrating after over 400 local young people and their parents/ carers attended their 6th Form Open Evening on Wednesday 9th November 2016. This was a record turnout for the Academy with the venue only equipped to accommodate that number of people.
The Open Evening was a great opportunity for existing and also young people from other local schools to meet the 6th Form team and A-Level specialist teachers. Mrs Dickinson, Director of Marketing and Enterprise at The Evolve Trust, briefed the audience on the outstanding careers and enterprise programmes 6th Form students at Brunts can access through the Academy’s extensive links with the local business and education community.
Brunts 6th Form is still celebrating after achieving record A-Level exams results in August 2016 with a 99.7% pass rate – the highest pass rate in Mansfield – and all students going onto secure their chosen destinations. From this cohort, 70% of students went onto university of which 25% were Russell Group universities.
Neil Davies, Head of 6th form added, “It was highly rewarding to see so many students, internal and external, attend this open evening and start the process of applying to 6th Form. A huge thank you has to go to the staff and current students who supported this open evening. We look forward to receiving applications from all attendees.”
