A Level Results 2018

At the exciting time when Shenley Brook End School and The Hazeley Academy are joining together to form a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT), students at the school have achieved superb A level results.

Four students each gained an amazing 3 A*s; they are Matthew Bardsley, Zack MacQueen, Matthew Pembery and Charlie Mathieson across a range of subjects: maths, further maths, computer science, design & technology, psychology and sport. These students are all going to Russell Group universities to study Architecture, Computer Science and Sport/Excercise degrees.

An amazing 44% of all students gained at least 1 A*/A or equivalent and 90% gained at least 1 C grade or higher.

Headteacher, Glen Martin, who will become CEO of the new trust called 5 Dimensions Trust said "I am really pleased for the students, parents and staff who have worked so hard to get these results. This bodes well for the new Trust as two excellent schools work together to support students and their families in the west of Milton Keynes. Building on already fantastic results at both schools, where both sets of sixth form results are significantly agove the national average, the partnership will improve opportunities for all our students."

GCSE Results 2018

Shenley Brook End School students were celebrating after receiving excellent GCSE results.

Two-thirds of all Year 11 students gained five or more GCSEs at grade 4 or C or above, including Maths and English.

The new grading for GCSEs (9-1) that was only for English and Maths last year has been extended to the majority of other subjects; although there are still many graded at A* - G, and some qualifications have the grades Distinction* to Pass.

80% of all students gained a 4 or higher in English, 77% grained a 4 or higher in Maths and 75% did likewise in Science.

Half lf all students gained the equivalent of at least one 9-7/A*-A grade and a third grained at least one A*.

Seven students gained 5 or more subjects at the top possible grades (9/A*/Distinction*): Alex Pembery, Robyn Bodimeade-Firth, Victoria Rider, Katy Barnett, Kaz Bosson, Paris Sharples and Hannah Wu (picture above). Robyn and Victoria gained an amazing eight top marks and Alex achieved ten.

Science results were also excellent with 5 students gaining the new tougher top grade of 9 in all three sciences and nearly 40% of students taking the separate sciences gained the old A grade (7-9) in every one. Amazingly half our Music GCSE students gained grades 9 or 8 as did a third of our Philosophy & Ethics students and a quarter of our Drama students.

Headteacher Glen Martin said "I am please for everyone that their hard work has been rewarded with these fantastic results. Students, staff and parents have all contributed to these great results. I am looking forward to welcoming the students back into our sixth form. The partnership with The Hazeley Academy has paid dividends already at both schools with our results exceeding national expectations and we're looking forward to continuing this as a form Trust."

Shenley brook end school ofsted inspection report 21 january 2015

The school was visited by Inspectors in January 2015 and the report is now available.  A link is found at the bottom of this page.

They were impressed with what we do in the school and how your children learn and behave. Below are some points from the report:

  • Students achieve well in most subjects. The gap in achievement between disadvantaged students and others is typically small.                                
  • Almost all teachers have high expectations of students. They teach lessons that engage students’ interest and provide suitable challenge for those of varying abilities
  • Students make good progress in most subjects in the sixth form. Teaching is effective and a range of opportunities in and outside of lessons help sixth-formers develop the skills and understanding needed for life beyond school.
  • Teachers receive a wide range of effective training and support which contributes well to developing and maintaining good quality teaching.
  • All students have an equal opportunity to succeed.
  • The school has a clear commitment to promoting equality and tackling discrimination.
  • The school provides well for students’ spiritual, social moral and cultural development. The school prepares students well for life in modern Britain.
  • Teachers’ skilful use of questions helps students deepen their learning.
  • The atmosphere in this large school is happy, businesslike and purposeful. Students conduct themselves in an exemplary manner around the school site. Students spoke positively about the school and their experience of it.
  • Students achieve very well across the school in a wide range of subjects. Inspectors saw evidence of students making strong progress in many lessons.
  • The most able students are making good progress.
  • Leaders at all levels have high expectations for students and staff. They have worked effectively to establish a culture of learning and a sense of belonging for students and staff alike.

As with all schools, there are areas that we are currently working on to improve even further, and these were considered with the Ofsted team and identified in the report. These include:

  • ensuring that the high level of challenge that we offer students (and which is recognised in the report) is consistently high in all areas;
  • that our feedback mechanisms (which were also rightly praised) are effective across all subjects;
  • reviewing our provision for the few students that retake GCSE maths in the sixth form.

Overall the school was adjudged to be Good; the report highlights many more aspects of what we do and is a very positive reflection of Shenley Brook End School.
