The entire school community of Brabyns Preparatory School, are celebrating a remarkable set of Senior School Examination results.
As the competition for secondary school places ever increases, the children attending Brabyns are truly fortunate to have an impressive choice of the top independent and state secondary schools within the area, in which to continue their education into Year 7 and beyond.
As Headteacher of Brabyns Preparatory School, I am incredibly proud of our wonderful Year 6 pupils. Like us all, they have endured unprecedented challenges over the past couple of years, but in spite of this they have shown resilience, determination and positivity, and consequently achieved such well-deserved examination success. We not only celebrate their academic successes but their achievements and growth as individuals; I know any school is privileged to gain a Brabyns pupil.
Brabyns is a co-education independent school and nursery and we are very mindful of, but not restricted by, the National Curriculum. Our curriculum is personally structured and, in the later years, there is a clear focus placed on the requirements of the Independent and State Schools entrance requirements and preparation. The curriculum remains broad and balanced with a continued emphasis on creativity, questioning, and independent thinking.
Eighty percent of the Year 6 pupils sat entrance examinations for Independent Senior Schools, resulting in offers flooding in for places in September at: Manchester High School for Girls, Stockport Grammar School, The King's School Macclesfield, Alderley Edge School for Girls, Hulme Hall Grammar School, Cheadle Hulme School and Harrogate Ladies College. Impressively, these were accompanied with offers of music and academic scholarships.
Those children entering the state system are an integral part of the class' success and have been involved in examination preparation throughout their time at Brabyns. They take this experience along with their incredible work ethic to thrive and be their very best to their chosen secondary schools.
Every member of the Brabyns staff are delighted to see the pupils' hard work and dedication has truly paid off!
Personally, I would like to thank and praise all the children, parents and staff for their contributions to this process as, once again, it shows what an excellent, all-round school we are; I could not be prouder!
Mrs. L. McKenna, Headteacher
