Mansfield's Brunts Academy celebrating 'superb' A Level results
The Brunts Academy, which is part of The Evolve Trust, has seen an impressive 100 per cent pass rate for the third time in four years.
Grades announced today around the country are the result of teacher assessments which have been approved by national exam boards, and are a reflection of a student’s attainment throughout their studies.
The academy has seen 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 per cent of students have secured a destination in employment, education or training, with 85 per cent 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.”
