“Maximising students’ abilities, ambitions and academic potential”

Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College is a successful, vibrant and a popular school where achievement and relationships are vitally important, and where all students are valued as individuals. Broadoak is a comprehensive, co-educational school for 11-16 year olds. The College  prides itself with its modern facilities, particularly for ICT including our own Internet Café and the extensive use of tablets to enhance students’ methods of learning. 2014 has seen the opening of a new state of the art floodlit Artificial Turf Pitch for all year round use, new tennis courts which are also designed for netball and basketball. The athletics facilities have also been upgraded to meet the top UK standards in outdoor sports facilities.

An impressive 82% of our students gained 5 or more A*- C grades with a notable 15% of the grades  being  A * and A. The number of students gaining A* and As across all subjects was really excellent and bucks the national trend.  However, the College is particularly delighted with the excellent progress the students have made since joining at the age of 11, which means a high number of students  achieved their personal best.

Ian Walsh, Deputy Headteacher enthused, “ We are delighted with our results, we have introduced some very innovative learning programmes for our core subjects and we have already seen the benefits with pleasing results in English and Maths this summer, including  81% of children  gaining  an A* to C in English Literature.  An impressive number of students also gained Distinction* awards for our BTEC vocational courses.” In other subjects 100% of PE, Design and Technology Textiles, Business Studies and ICT students passed with flying colours.

Our extracurricular activities offer a rich diet of Drama, Dance, Music, Art and Sport and foreign travel including this year to Morocco! We offer an extensive range of diverse lunchtime and afterschool activities and clubs to satisfy all tastes.  Students enjoy challenging opportunities as part of our Gifted & Talented programme including the College hosting national and regional events such a “Skirting Science.”  Our musical success goes from strength to strength with outstanding whole school performances such as “We Will Rock You” receiving fantastic reviews plus a very success partnership with the Taunton Music Services for peripatetic music and singing lessons.

The College’s last Ofsted Inspection was very good, the Lead Inspector commented “Good leadership and management have raised the quality of the curriculum and teaching and learning, so that achievement is improving. The good quality of care guidance and support ensures that students feel safe in school and that their personal development is good.”  The inspector added “Students behaved well in the lessons observed and around the school. They have a good understanding of how to lead a healthy lifestyle and spoke highly of the opportunities for physical exercise in the school.”

Broadoak enjoys very good relationships with local partner primary schools enabling them to offer an excellent transition programme. As a result of their outstanding community projects, pupils and families choosing Broadoak for their secondary school education are involved and have a sense of belonging from the outset.

Broadoak College played host to 38 Able, Gifted and Talented mathematicians from 7 local primary schools on Friday 3rd October. The College has always run extensive outreach programmes, especially for English and Drama,as part of the Learning Partnership Network run with the Royal Shakespear eCompany. This event was our...
