GCSE Results 2021

A message from Mrs Nicola Oddie, Head Teacher:-

"We were delighted to be able to invite our students and parents into school to share with them their GCSE results on the 12th August. After what only can be described as the most challenging of times, I am proud and humbled by how our Year 11 students at Brownedge St Mary’s have risen to the challenges that this year has presented to them. Amidst the difficulties and changes to the examination process, the light that shines through reflects the pride we have as a family: of their resilience, dedication and adaptability. We are incredibly proud of how they have weathered the storm, showing their hard work, fortitude and commitment to their studies. Their resolve and courage in overcoming the adversity they have faced is astounding for such young people. They have learned, earlier than most, that life is about adapting and improvising.

Brownedge students continue to go from strength to strength. We, once again, are pleased to report some outstanding achievements and our results have continued to improve. A significant number of students have achieved top grades in a wide range of subjects. It would be unjust to name individuals as all have been successful and their results represent positive attitudes, strong relationships with staff and a ‘can do’ mindset. Overall, 78% of students received a grade 4 or higher in both English and maths, with 86% Grade 4+ in English and 80% Grade 4+ in maths. 67% received Grade 5 or higher in both English and maths.

However, we know our students are so much more than the GCSE results they achieve. They have inspired us all and truly have excelled in our school mission of ‘letting their light shine’. They are in a strong position to step out onto their next journey in learning, safe in the knowledge that they are independent learners and well prepared for whatever life has instore and able to make a difference to the world around them.

I would also like to thank the hard work of the staff who have supported and nurtured them; they continually go the extra mile for our students. Thanks also to our parents for their continued support. Once again, our Brownedge family has proved that, with determination, and a dream, anything is possible."



Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, GCSE results for 2020 and 2021 where Centre Assessed Grades and this therefore makes it very difficult to compare years within a school and more importantly to compare schools against each other.
