All about Us
Information about our school
The school is a voluntary controlled, Church of England, primary, co-educational day school catering for children in the age range 5-11 years.
The school is situated in the leafy village of Brockholes, in the rural Holme Valley of West Yorkshire.
Brockholes School welcomes and values the contribution of all stakeholders. We provide a safe, stimulating and challenging child centred learning environment and provide opportunities for every child/adult to fulfil their potential.
The children will be taught and encouraged to grow spiritually and socially and to respect themselves and each other's views and beliefs.
A strong leadership team and staff will maintain open communication with children, staff, parents, Governors, the Church and the wider community.
Together we will aim high and succeed!
