A message from the Headteacher.
Brookfield is an 11 to 18 Comprehensive School with a student population of 1,375 including 300 in the Sixth form. We are a specialist Sports College, and use this status to work even more closely with our community. We are a school which tries to offer as many opportunities as we can to the young people whom we serve. They are given every encouragement to fulfil their potential in many different areas, including academic, musical, sporting and community work. We firmly believe in the education of the whole person and we seek to develop intellectually curious and socially aware young people.
Sixth form students play a significant part in the wider life of the school. Many work with younger students and in partner primary schools, and are encouraged to succeed in community projects. The sound relationships built up within the school help provide a safe, happy environment where all students can prosper. Year Councils and a whole School Council give the students a forum to voice opinions and concerns and to share in fund raising both for school and charity. In recent years, thousands of pounds have been raised for local and national causes, reflecting a concern for others which is highly gratifying.
It is a school which celebrates excellence in all things. At Brookfield people matter and everyone in the school is valued. The school's pastoral structure and discipline are rooted in care, friendliness and good humour, and great stress is placed on the partnership between school and home. The School Association reflects this. It has successfully provided a mini-bus, refurbished the School Hall, and made significant improvements to our Millennium Library.
This website is constantly evolving. We hope it will provide information and insight into the work of the school, as well as becoming an interactive learning environment for our students.
Welcome to Brookfield
