Key Stage 4:

The 24th August saw a hall full of excited students waiting to collect their results. The atmosphere in the room was electrifying as students nervously opened their envelopes. Suffice to say there were lots of smiling faces and tears of joy as the students read out their results.

We would like formally to recognise and celebrate the tireless work of the teachers and school staff who have gone above and beyond to ensure that the incredibly high-quality education continues here at Brentford School for Girls. I would also like to thank families for the support they have provided for our young people and the school.

We are very proud of all our students, whether they achieved top grades or made incredible progress to pass with better grades than they expected. They have all done so well and we are excited to see what happens next for them in their future studies in Year 12!
