Bruntcliffe Academy was welcomed into the fold of The GORSE Academies Trust in 2015 and since then flourished in to one of the top performing schools in the country. Under the leadership and guidance of Sir John Townsley, Chief Executive Officer, Leanne Griffiths Executive Principal and the wider Executive team, the trust emphasises simple but important values: outstanding behaviour in classrooms, around school and in the community when our students proudly represent us; high academic expectations so that students may achieve to the best of their efforts and obtain for themselves the gift of choice in moving onto fulfilling Post-16 college courses, training and careers; enjoyment of learning through a sense of awe and wonder in their lessons and extra-curricular activities.

Since 2015 the school has transformed beyond recognition; where it was in the bottom 5% of schools nationally in 2015, by 2017 it was in the top 45% for Progress 8. The examination results from 2018 and 2019 show a further significant shift in progress and attainment, and now place us in the top 13% of schools nationally for student outcomes!

Through our five core values: Productivity, Community, Integrity, Inclusivity and Ambition, students, parents/ carers and our colleagues are committed to the mission of the academy; one where we together ensure that we are positively shaping the future for all, including those who face socio-economic disadvantage. Within our mission we seek to provide equal opportunity for students of all prior attainments, to encourage them to go beyond what they think they can achieve, to enjoy learning and to aspire to lead healthy and happy lives. To do this, we provide for them: safe, nurturing learning environments where they can contribute to discussion and work in silence on challenging material, to build resilience (the Purple Zone); opportunities for personal growth and enrichment (the Bruntcliffe Festival of Culture), student leadership, debate and public speaking (our Socratic Debate programme). Many students choose the trust’s Outstanding (Ofsted, 2018) post-16 provision, Elliott Hudson College, one of the leading academic Post-16 providers in the country and where students from Bruntcliffe Academy enjoy prioritised access.
