Around 1,000 schools and colleges subscribe to ALIS (A Level Information System) run by Durham University. Its most recent report found that students at Brockenhurst achieved better results than would be predicted on the basis of their GCSE grades.

It also found that a much higher proportion of Brockenhurst students than average thought that  the atmosphere at the College was good for students, that they were treated like adults and that they would advise other students to attend the College.

The College has held the Matrix standard since 2004 for our excellent Information, Advice and Guidance service for students. In 2007 we achieved the Matrix Excellence award in recognition of our outstanding work. Brock is one of very few colleges in the country to have achieved accreditation for all areas of its College provision.

Judges said: "The College has used imaginative ways to embed the Matrix standard across the whole organisation, both strategically and operationally, which has transformed not only its IAG delivery, but its entire customer service approach."
