Welcome to Broadlands Academy
Broadlands Learning Gateway
Parents/carers will notice that we have discontinued the Broadlands Learning Gateway. It will be replaced with a better, more easily accessible remote service.
Unfortunately there will be time delay between the Gateway closing and the new service starting. We hope this transition will be completed by the end of next term.
In the meantime, there will be a communications list sent to you which you will be able to use in order to contact the appropriate member of staff with issues relating to your child. We will continue to use our automated attendance system to inform parents/carers if their child has not arrived at the Academy. Please can you ensure that if any contact numbers have recently changed, you inform your child’s tutor in writing and we will make the necessary adjustments to our system.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
We are pleased to confirm that the new Academy jumpers which may be worn underneath blazers are now available to purchase directly from Sports Scene, Keynsham. Please note that these are an optional uniform item.
We have been advised that the pricing will be as follows:
11-12 years £13.99
S – M £15.99
L – XXL £17.99
If you wish to contact Sports Scene please ring them directly on 0117 9861919.

Broadlands Academy Celebrates Best Ever GCSE Results
Congratulations to all our YR11 students who have achieved the best set of GCSE results the school has ever seen.
Provisional results indicate that 61% of students have achieved five A* to C grades including GCSEs in Maths & English, a 17% increase from the 2012 result of 44%, and 11% higher than the previous best results achieved in 2011. In addition, over 82% have achieved five or more GCSEs at grades A* to C compared to 64% in 2012.
GCSE results at the Academy have improved significantly since last year, even though the national indication is that results have declined this year. Students have left with more qualifications than ever before, putting them in a much stronger position to secure post 16 placements and apprenticeships.
“All staff at Broadlands are thrilled at the outstanding results achieved by our students and are so proud of the way they applied themselves over the last few months ensuring they achieved the best results Broadlands has ever seen. The dedicated and hardworking staff have pushed and challenged an academically able cohort and ensured that our students are well prepared for the next stage of their lives.”
Dean Anderson, Principal
In addition to the headline figures, more students than ever before have achieved A*-C grades in English, Maths and Science. The Academy, in its first year, has demonstrated rapid improvement and now has a very secure platform for the equally academically able students in the year groups below.
There were a number of outstanding individual performance’s with students achieving the top grades of A* and A’s in a range of subjects.
