Sixth Form Success!

2021 Brunts 6th Form students achieve 100% pass rate for the third time in 4 years


Students and staff at The Brunts Academy are celebrating another set of superb A-Level results today.

The academy, which is part of The Evolve Trust, has seen an impressive 100% pass rate for the third time in four years.

There has also been an increase in the number of students achieving the highest A-Level grades, with the average mark at the Mansfield school being a B grade.

In addition, 100% of students have secured a destination in employment, education or training, with 85% progressing onto university pathways.

Carl Atkin, Principal of The Brunts Academy, said: “At Brunts, we are dedicated to opening minds, creating opportunities for all, and ensuring our young people believe in themselves, fulfil their potential and develop the skills needed to succeed and enjoy life.

“I am so proud to say that these impressive results show that we are boldly striving towards this, and I want to congratulate each and every one of our students for their hard work and dedication. We wish them every success as they take on the next stage of their journeys.”

Claire-Marie Cuthbert, CEO of The Evolve Trust, said:

“I am thrilled for The Brunts Academy students who have received their results today, and who have confidently shown many of our values of ambition, integrity, inclusivity, resilience and endeavour throughout their studies.

“I am particularly grateful for our amazing staff who have been at the heart of our students’ education throughout this important year. The fact that no teacher grading has been changed as a result of Ofqual’s moderation really is a true reflection of the brilliant teachers and staff we have across the Trust. Without their enthusiasm, dedication, and commitment, these successes today would not have been possible.”

Individual successes include those of Amelia Tunnicliffe, who achieved four A* grades including Maths and Further Maths. Amelia, who is now progressing to study Maths at St Andrews University, said: "I really appreciate the support and guidance from the sixth form tutors and leaders over the past two years".

Additionally, Henry Stevenson gained an impressive three A* grades in his studies and will be progressing to study Architectural Engineering at Leeds University. He said: "The course was fantastic, and the teachers were so supportive, both in class and during our remote studies. I feel well prepared to progress onto university now!”

Fellow student, Jake Whitbread gained an A* grade and three As in his studies and has secured his place to study Maths at Nottingham University. He said: "I am delighted with my results and so grateful to Brunts Sixth Form for their tremendous support during the challenging pandemic years.”
