Good news for the School – Positive Performance Table Rating

The Department for Education have published their performance tables website which shows very good student outcomes for Brakenhale students based on last year’s examination results.

These tables show that when Brakenhale is compared to schools with a similar intake (55 were identified nationally) we are placed in the top half of that table.
