Back to school in Brent

This September, we’re reflecting on Brent’s GCSE and A Level results. I remember receiving my own results and now I am going through it with my children; the feeling of opening that envelope with no idea what lies inside is like no other!

I was delighted to learn that our students in Brent achieved A Level results that surpassed the national average and GCSE results that surpassed last year’s national average (we await this year’s national average figure). It’s a real testament to the hard work our young people in Brent have put in and the tireless effort of many of our teachers, school staff and governors who have helped our young people along the way. These results will open the door for our students to now go onto sixth form and university. We are very pleased for them and wish them continued success in the future.

We are making and have made great strides in the past two years with regards to our schools and we are well on the way to ensuring that our vision of every school in Brent to be judged by Ofsted as at least “good” by September 2017, is achieved. This figure has soared from 78 per cent in 2014 to 94 per cent currently. The level of success we have had in Brent will spur us on to continue our hard work so that this success continues to benefit every child in Brent.

We also have an ambitious school build programme to respond to our growing young population in Brent. It is our aim for every child in Brent to have access to a good, local school place and receive the very best education and we are well on the way to achieving this. Our hard work will continue until and after this vision has been realised.
