GCSE Results September 2021


Brakenhale is once again celebrating another set of excellent Key Stage 4 outcomes, on average our students have achieved half a grade higher than national average. Despite the significant challenges of the past year our dedicated students, staff and parents have worked tirelessly to ensure that student outcomes were the very best that they could be. The high expectations that are so very important to everyone at the school have absolutely been upheld and alongside the positive and supportive relationships have led to a superb performance from the students. Myself and all the staff at Brakenhale could not be prouder of the achievements of our young people and we know they will go on to be successful in the next stage of their lives.

There were some outstanding individual student performances including:

Ethan Vine – 8 x Grade 9s, 1 x Grade 8

Rishyal Bhatti – 7 x Grade 9s, 2 x Grade 8s

Stephanie Adelowo – 4 x Grade 9s, 1 x Distinction*, 1 x Grade 8, 2 x Grade 7s, 1 x Grade 6

Alice Macdonald – 3 x Grade 9s, 2 x Grade 8s, 1 x Grade 7, 3 x Grade 6s

Luke Thompson – 3 x Grade 9s, 3 x Grade 8s, 1 x Grade 7, 1 x Grade 6, 1 x Grade 5

There are so many more highlighted, well done to all of our students.

Return to School: September 2021


Return to School

Students will return to school in September, in a staggered approach. Guidance from the government requires schools to conduct the rapid testing of students on their return after the Summer break. Full details of the rapid testing will be sent in a further communication.

This staggered return is for several reasons but mainly:
• To support our new Year 7 cohort as they begin their secondary school journey with us at #teambrakenhale, in the absence of transition
• To allow our Year 12 students to settle in to Sixth Form life
• To allow us to implement the rapid testing programme for all students before they fully return to school, as directed by the government

As a result, please refer to the table below which shows for each year group their return to school schedule. All students will return to school on Wednesday 8 September.
Whilst students are at home across the period Friday 3rd to Tuesday 7th September, Home Learning activities will be set on google classroom for Year 8 to 13.

Student Return to School Schedule: September 2021

Students should arrive for their Lateral Flow Device test (LFD) during the time indicated.

Students will be required to leave the site immediately after their LFD, except year 7 on Monday 6 September who will remain in school.

Google Classroom will be available for Years 8-13, from Friday 3 September to Tuesday 7 September.

*Year 12 appointments – students will be contacted directly about these.

Students at Brakenhale have achieved outstanding results in their A Level and BTEC examinations and have been absolutely delighted with their outcomes this morning. I am incredibly proud of their resilience throughout this unbelievably difficult period of time and the support they have received from their families and our staff has been exceptional. They thoroughly deserve their amazing successes.

Access to School


We would like to advise that following completion of the main entrance to the school site, after half-term we will be trialling the use of a single entrance/exit to the school via Rectory Lane. This will mean that the Coningsby gates will be permanently closed and students will no longer be able to use this entrance.
There are 2 pedestrian access gates one either side of the main gate, both with clear footpaths down to the main building and with pedestrian crossings which students should use and not walk through the car park.
We would also ask that students do not arrive at school before 8.15am when we will open the gates next to reception into the main area of the school.
If students attend official breakfast club arrival is via main reception between 7.40 and 8am where they will sign in with staff on duty.

Heroes Stamp Design Competition


We have registered with Royal Mail to enter their exciting ‘Heroes’ stamp design competition. This is an opportunity to design a stamp to ‘Honour the heroes of this Coronavirus pandemic’. Royal Mail will be producing a set of 8 stamps of the winning entries, which is a fantastic opportunity for you all.

GCSE Results 2020


Students at Brakenhale school have been celebrating their fantastic achievements at GCSE this morning.

After months of uncertainty they were finally able to receive their grades and get the recognition for their amazing hard work. The smiles on their faces and the sheer delight as they congratulated each other and phoned their loved ones was so wonderful to see.

We are all immensely proud of the way in which they have dealt with the pressures of this incredibly difficult period but also of the young people they have developed into over the last 5 years at Brakenhale. I would like to pay tribute to all the staff who have supported the students over their time with us and their families who have stood by our community.

A Level and BTEC Results 2020

I am incredibly proud of their resilience throughout this unbelievably difficult period of time and the support they have received from their families and our staff has been exceptional. They thoroughly deserve their amazing successes.

The grades this year we are incredibly pleased with, particularly in light of the very difficult circumstances in which they were calculated and the issues that have been advertised nationally. I am thrilled that these issues have overall not affected Brakenhale students.

Almost 50% of grades achieved were A*/A or equivalent, 70% were A*/B or equivalent, 90% A*/C or equivalent and 100% pass rate!
