    Some students are making plans for exciting gap years, some are carrying out an internship at Brigshaw and many students have also successfully secured prestigious apprenticeships in a variety of fields including law, finance, accountancy, IT, business, childcare, health, digital marketing and coaching. 

    This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher assessed grades, school moderation and exam board moderation against a national standard and approved and awarded by the exam boards. The government is not publishing performance data for any schools or colleges this year due to the varying impact of the pandemic.

    Mrs. Williams, the headteacher said: “We are immensely proud of all the work and achievements of our students over their seven years at Brigshaw High School, especially after such a difficult and disrupted year. Our teachers have worked tirelessly to ensure students are all able to progress onto higher education and study, and we look forward to seeing what they will achieve in the future.  We would like to commend all of our students who have shown incredible resilience and courage when faced with repeated lock downs, remote learning, self isolation, illness, bereavement and ever changing education plans that were often issued with little notice, were sometimes contradictory and caused unnecessary additional anxiety – our young people deserve better.  We continue to appreciate the incredible support of the Brigshaw families who have supported their children to Be the Best they can Be; bright futures await them.”
