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.

The Brunts Academy, which is part of the Evolve Trust is a popular and oversubscribed high achieving secondary school with a great tradition of success. We believe that an outstanding education develops our students academically, socially and morally, giving them the knowledge and skills to be successful at school and in life. We also feel it is important for our young people to develop outside of the classroom and we offer a wide range of enrichment and extra-curricular opportunities to help prepare our students for the next stage of their education, training or employment.

As a ‘Values’ driven Multi Academy Trust and our staff and students aspire to display the following values in all they do:

AMBITION: Striving for the highest personal achievement.

INTEGRITY: The moral courage to be sincere, reliable and trustworthy at all times.

INCLUSIVITY: Together we create a stronger community for all.

ENDEAVOUR: The best preparation for tomorrow is doing the best today.

RESILIENCE: Take on challenges, learn and thrive.

We believe that secondary education represents a major stage in the life of each young person and so we aim to work together with parents, carers, trustees, agencies and the local community to support our young people; enabling them to develop and grow within this community and in building together a real sense of identity within The Brunts Academy.

We demand excellence of ourselves and our community so that we can best serve our students and have an ambitious future.  The Brunts Academy is proud of the success our students achieve 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. 

I hope that you find the information on this website helpful and if you would like to know more, please do not hesitate to contact us.
