What the school says...

Formerly known as Cherry Trees, the school was founded in 1982 by Mrs Wendy Compson. In 2015, the Brookes Education Group bought Cherry Trees and the school became Brookes UK (we are also known as Brookes Cambridge internationally). Soon after, Gryphon House was built. This modern building now acts as the front of the school and includes a boarding facility, a state of the art IT suite, an art studio and a science lab.

That year, Brookes UK began the process of going into secondary education, and every year since, we have added an additional Year Group to the school. In September 2019, we had our first year of going from Year 1 to Year 11. Our senior school is now complete, and growing year on year with increasing educational opportunities.

We provide a unique family environment intertwined with our distinctive, child-centred approach to teaching and learning that enables every child to reach their full potential.

We want children to be happy in school and to thrive in our care. As part of our family, each child is recognised as an individual with unique needs. We provide genuine support and guidance to both child and family alike.

Throughout their educational journey, our children develop not only academically but also as global citizens, nurturing a sense of world vision and becoming a member of society who truly stands out from the crowd.

We explore links between different disciplines to develop a deeper understanding of the subject matter. We enhance these connections through bespoke learning programmes that break down the barriers that can exist between individual subjects.

Internationalism is also part of our DNA and informs all subjects across our curriculum. It’s a principle that provides children with a broader understanding of today’s world. We nurture this global awareness not only through our teaching but also our family of schools that span the continents.
