The government is not publishing performance data for any schools or colleges this year due to the varying impact of the pandemic. Deputy Headteacher and Acting Head of Sixth Form Jochen Tree commented “Congratulations to each and every student who endured so much through this academic year to get to this point today and we are so pleased to be able celebrate what you have achieved in the most difficult of circumstances.”
Headteacher Neil Dunn added ““I am so proud of the continued effort and enthusiasm Bromfords’ students showed in the face of adversity to earn these excellent results. Their willingness to not only accept remote learning, but to develop and take advantage of it for part of the year without losing focus on their end goals was an inspiration to us all.”
