With a huge haul of grade A*s, the Purton school believes their GCSE results could put them at the top of the class, nationally.
Three students achieved straight A*s in all 12 of their GCSEs. Former Brookfield pupils, Xinmei Wang, Sophie Madley and Rachel Blackford, also earned an A grade each at Maths AS level. The three best friends had even more to celebrate, as Sophie's Food Technology result put her in the top 10 nationally and Rachel was in the top 10 for Business Communication Systems.

Rachel's success was made more remarkable as she missed almost 12 months of school after she was diagnosed with Hodgkins Disease. When chemotherapy left her feeling too weak to go to school for much of the first year of GCSE studies, the determined youngster worked from text books at home.
"We're so pleased for her," said mum, Linda. "We knew how hard she'd worked but didn't know if she'd covered the whole syllabus. It's a reward for Rachel after three years that had been really difficult."
With her sights set on a career in law, Rachel is now studying Maths, Economics, Politics and History at Cirencester college.
This year's results set a new record for Bradon Forest, with 24% of students achieving A*s and As. "We can't find any other school locally, regionally or nationally that has three 12 straight A* GCSE students, with AS Level at A grade," said Performing Arts Manager, Jennifer Cady.
Headteacher Len Spiers is equally pleased that pupils have done so well. "I am delighted with the success of all these students," said Head, Len Spiers. "It is a testament to all their hard work and also that of our excellent team of staff, both teaching and support at Bradon Forest and the staff teams at our partner primary schools."
