Smiles all around for Brannel students

There were lots of smiles as the Class of 2019 from Brannel School celebrated their fantastic results!  Overall the school’s results have risen for the fourth year in a row.

The top performer at Brannel was Jacob Inch who is looking forward to starting Callywith College this month to study A-levels.  Jacob was pleased to achieve grade 9s in Chemistry, Physics and Geography and grade 8s in Maths, Biology, PE and English.

Max Burnett was one of the first students to open his results and was thrilled to find out he’d gained grades 899 in Science along with grade 8 in Maths and Computer Science.  Max will be studying Science at Callywith College in September.

Hyrum Willis was one of the top performing students this year.  He was given the great news of his results over the telephone as Hyrum is currently on the Isles of Scilly gaining experience in a pharmacy. He hopes to continue his studies when he returns to become a Doctor.

Rebecca Odgers, a keen cricketer, achieved grade 9s in Maths, Chemistry and Physics and hopes to progress after College to study Sports Science at Loughborough University.  Another keen cricket player is Adam Thomas who has secured a cricket scholarship to Wellington College.

New Headteacher Chris Liles said, “The school is delighted with these results, our students and staff have worked hard throughout the year and these outcomes are the reward that they so richly deserve.”

“The school is in a strong position and has demonstrated once again that hard work, a sense of working towards a common goal and a rich, rewarding curriculum really do pay dividends.  We are excited and privileged to be a part of helping our students to gain the qualifications they deserve and need to move to the next stage in their education.  We look forward to sharing their future successes and wish them well in all that they do”

Brannel has recently welcomed the Class of 2024 and is looking forward to watching these students thrive and grow into young adults, ready to face the world.  This year’s Year 7 cohort is the school’s biggest yet but Brannel prides itself on being a small secondary school where every child is known as an individual.

Prospective parents and their families are invited to Brannel School’s Open Evening, taking place on Wednesday 2nd October from 5pm to 8pm.
