What says..

One dad said that his 14-year-old son benefits greatly from forest school. ‘He’s just that little bit more free to express himself and it’s tactile. It ticks so many boxes at once - yes, he might be learning, but it’s also covering sensory issues and being outdoors, which he absolutely loves.’ Recent national champions at the annual Special School Games included all three of Brooke’s cheerleading teams across primary, secondary and post-16. In gymnastics, one former and one current student also became national champions....

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2012, Chris Pollitt. Organised and efficient, he arrived promptly for our appointment, well prepared with facts, figures and a neat pile of printed emails. We are shown into the senior management’s communal office. Short of space, he decided on this collegiate approach, having decided that the individual offices could be better used for quality interventions with the children.

Married to Kelly. ‘She is a teacher as well, so she understands what it’s like to work in schools and that makes a big difference,’ he says.

Special Education Needs

Brooke school is a community special school for children from two to 19 years who have a range of special educational needs including severe, moderate or complex learning difficulties. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs or EHC Plan. At Brooke we believe that a child's time at school should be spectacular and memorable. We believe in making every single moment count. For Brooke it is about helping children to achieve a better life today, not just for when they are older, or by the time they leave school. At Brooke we aim to ensure that our children have 'bags of confidence and self belief' so they can face the challenges that life brings and overcome the barriers that could prevent a wonderful life. By providing the child with a wide, varied and exciting education we empower them to be confident. School should be about narrowing the gap between education and the real world, and that is what Brooke does. At Brooke School "We believe, we can do it!"
