“Maximising students’ abilities, ambitions and academic potential”

Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College is a successful, vibrant and 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 on its modern, state of the art facilities, particularly for ICT, its extensive sports fields, which are in the process of a major upgrade, and new Dance and Drama Studio. Broadoak is a specialist Maths and Computing College and a High Performing Specialist School. Headteacher Shelagh Pritchard commented “We provide a happy and safe environment within which students can experience opportunities beyond the classroom so that they can become engaged, independent learners and responsible and confident adults. This is reflected in our “outstanding” student attendance, which was highlighted in our recent Ofsted Report.”

This summer, an impressive 87% of students gained 5 or more A*- C grades for their GCSEs, with 69% of students gaining  A* - C in English and 64% in Maths. Record numbers of students gained   A* and A’s across all subjects, alongside an impressive number of Distinction* awards for BTEC vocational courses. Overall 73% of all qualifications were a grade C or better.

Broadoak offers outstanding opportunities as part of their Maths and Computing specialism, but also provides a broad and varied GCSE curriculum alongside an excellent range of vocational choices through strong links with Weston College. There is also a full programme of extracurricular activities available, locally, nationally and internationally. Broadoak College is one of only ten schools in the UK to join the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Learning and Performance Network. We are now in our third year of this very successful partnership.

The College has recently had a very good Ofsted Inspection; the Lead Inspector commented “Achievement is good. Most students make good progress and gain better than expected examination results. Strategies to develop the students’ skills in literacy and numeracy are good. Students behave well and attendance is high. Students feel safe, valued and respected and they enjoy the extensive range of activities available. The Headteacher has high aspirations for the school. She provides good leadership and the senior leadership team shares her drive to continue to improve teaching and achievement. The governing body is most supportive. Governors know the school well.”

John Brock, Chair of Governors, enthusiastically added “This coming academic year promises to be very exciting and the reputation of our students’ excellent attitude, smart appearance and good behaviour is well-known throughout Weston. As governors we were particularly pleased that in the recent Ofsted parent survey feedback, many parents and carers made positive comments about the school, particularly about the commitment of staff and the extent to which their children enjoyed the school”
