Smart New Start to Term

New Year 7 students at Bradon Forest School started the term proudly sporting the smart new uniform.

Students approached staff during the last academic year to say that they didn’t feel the old uniform of polo shirts and jumpers reflected who they wanted to be as learners. After consultation with the Student Council a variety of formal and more relaxed options were presented to the rest of the student body. The overwhelming vote was for new blazers, shirts and ties. Students felt that the new look emulated the professional workplace and prepared them for learning. “We were pleased to work alongside our students to create a new uniform and PE kit for Bradon Forest School. It is great to see young people taking ownership of their school environment and having a mature approach to their studies,” Dr Morrison, Headteacher.

Students return to the school celebrating the success of the summer, with record GCSE results for the third consecutive year. 63% of students have achieved the government’s ‘gold standard’ of 5 A* - C including English and Mathematics.

With half of students taking individual Biology, Chemistry and Physics alongside Humanities and MFL subjects it is great to see our students succeeding in many of key qualifications valued by employers and universities. As ever there were several notable individual achievements with 21 students gaining eight or more A - A* grades.

The beginning of the new academic year also marked the start of life for Bradon Forest School as an academy. The school has become a member of the Athelstan Trust, a group of three secondary schools established by Malmesbury School.
