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; Oxford University to study Bio-Chemistry, The University of Warwick to study Engineering, The Royal Northern College of Music to study Popular Music, The University of Sheffield to study Medicine, The University of Liverpool to study English Literature and The University of Reading to study Agriculture. In addition, several students have secured Higher Apprenticeships and employment with organisations such as Laing O’Rourke and The RAF.
Our students have performed exceptionally well with a 99.7% pass rate.
