Welcome from Mr Fiddimore - Director of Post 16


I am delighted to present our Sixth Form to you in this section. The Brunts Academy Sixth Form is a high-performing, academic institution which offers an excellent preparation to our students to enable them to progress on to their chosen destination. As the Assistant Headteacher responsible for Sixth Form, I am so proud of our results, both in terms of academic achievement and the destinations secured. 

In fact, our parents agree; in a large recent survey amongst parents of our Sixth Form students, 100% agree that their child makes good progress at Brunts Sixth Form and is well looked after here. I'm sure you will agree that this is a very positive endorsement indeed!

You can browse through the course videos in these pages and access detailed information about the courses we offer. There is also information about the support and guidance we provide to our students to help them achieve their potential and develop the skills needed to succeed (and enjoy life!). You can even make an application online, but don't delay as our places are in great demand! 

I hope you enjoy reading all about us!


Sixth Form Success!

2022 Brunts 6th Form students achieve 100% pass rate for the third year in a row!


Students and staff at The Brunts Academy are rejoicing after receiving their A-Level grades for 2022.

A testament to the hard work and resilience of pupils over the last two years, the Academy is pleased to share that it has secured a 100 per cent pass rate for the third year in a row and is delighted to see all leavers heading onto their next steps with university, apprenticeships or employment from September.

While all pupils have done incredibly well, some standout individual achievements include:

  • Harry Gardner achieved an amazing three A*s in Maths, Further Maths and Physics and will be going on to study mechanical engineering at the University of Manchester. Commenting on his results, Harry said:"I am absolutely elated with my results and grateful for the continued support from my A level teachers which enabled me to achieve this”.
  • Angel Robinson, who successfully secured an A* in Psychology, and two As in Maths and Biologyand is progressing to an apprenticeship at Glenair. Celebrating her results, Angel said:"The careers advice I received at Brunts Sixth Form allowed me to consider options broader than university. I am delighted with my results and looking forward to starting work in September".
  • Owen Hibberd-Smith earned an A in Sociology, a B in Photography and a Distinction* in Creative Media. Owen will be progressing to Queen Mary University of London to study international relations. Receiving his grades, Own commented:"My teachers were so helpful and the support I had in learning independent study skills was fantastic".

Carl Atkin, Principal at The Brunts Academy, said:


“I am extremely proud of our students’ successes and how hard staff have worked to ensure future student destinations are secured. Despite the obvious challenges this year group have faced over the last few years, they have done remarkably well and we wish them every success for the future”


Martin Fiddimore, Director of Post-16 at The Brunts Academy, said:

“There has been much anticipation for these results with many reports on changes to the A Level grading following the pandemic. It is fantastic to know that the hard work of staff and students has paid off and we wish all our students the very best as they embark on the next stage of their lives”
