“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 school prides itself with its modern, state of the art facilities, particularly for ICT, its extensive sports fields and a brand new Drama and Dance Studio. Broadoak has been a specialist Maths and Computing College since 2006, and in 2008 graduated as a High Performing Specialist School. The College is also one of only ten schools in the UK to join the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Learning and Performance Network, working in this successful partnership since 2009.
Headteacher Shelagh Pritchard says “We foster values of courtesy, consideration and individual responsibility, we offer a high level of challenge accompanied by high levels of support so that all can achieve. This commitment from the college is reflected in our “outstanding” student attendance, which was highlighted in our recent Ofsted Report.”
Broadoak College was delighted with their best ever GCSE results in 2012 with an impressive 93% of students achieved 5 or more A* - C grades enabling them to progress on their chosen paths for Higher Education.
During our Ofsted Inspection, in November 2012, the Inspection Team recognised the very good behaviour at the school and the students’ high levels of attendance. The Inspector commented “The students feel safe, valued and respected and they enjoy the extensive range of activities.”
