The Ministry of Education recently released the summer 2022 exam performance data for all secondary schools, sixth form and colleges. This is the first time data has been released since 2019 and since the start of the pandemic, but shows a summary of key metrics as well as school and national data from 2019, for comparison.
Achievements at Brookfield, part of Redhill Academy Trust, have improved significantly since 2019. At GCSEs, over 60% of pupils reached Year 5 or above in Maths and English, while 80% reached Year 4 year and more in both. The Attainment 8 measure, which shows the average grade each student achieves across all subjects, rose from 4.7 to 5.4 in 2019. At A-level, the pass rate rose from 96.5 to 97.7 %, while the A*-A success rate increased from 20.2% to 25.3%
Director Mr Hirst said: “Our Progress 8 score of +0.4 represents some of the highest performance in the county and region. Other metrics also put Brookfield well ahead of other schools locally, regionally and within the Redhill Academy Trust.
Applications for primary schools are now open in Derbyshire
“These results are a testament to the hard work of students, staff and parents, not just over the past 12 months, but over the past three years of navigating through the global pandemic. They deserve huge credit for their results, and we are very proud of their outstanding academic achievements which show that Brookfield is one of the best performing schools in Derbyshire and the progress of Year 11 pupils is the strongest in the school history. The 2022 academic results, along with Brookfield’s focus on expanding the educational experience for all students, provide a foundation upon which future successes will continue to be achieved,” said Mr. Hirst.
Brookfield, on Chatsworth Road, Chesterfield, officially joined the Redhill Academy Trust in March 2019. The Trust now comprises 15 academies across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, providing education for over 11,000 children in nursery, infant, junior, secondary and post-16.
