Whatever you want to be, we will help you to succeed

Our aim at Brooksbank is to provide an outstanding educational experience for every one of our students.  Academic achievement, while being a top priority for us, is only part of our remit.  We take a holistic approach towards developing talented and personable young people, with the aim that they will go on to live happy and successful lives and forge rewarding and successful careers.


Inspiring students to Aspire and Achieve

Our vision as a school is encapsulated in three ‘A’s: Aspire And Achieve.  Our vision statement is displayed prominently across the school.  It reminds us all that we should strive to do our very best, every moment of every day.  This philosophy would surely have struck a chord with our philanthropic founder, Joseph Brooksbank, who founded The Brooksbank School three hundred years ago.  We believe that all of our students have unique attributes, whether they regards themselves as scientists, musicians, writers, artists, mathematicians, athletes or a combination of all these things, we will encourage them all to Aspire and Achieve.


A climate of success in which to learn and flourish

We believe in creating exciting opportunities in order to broaden minds and nurture talent.  By offering our students an unrivalled programme of learning opportunities and out-of-hours activities which are additional to the curriculum, our students will Aspire and Achieve. Opportunities to explore and learn are in abundance at the school.  For those who wish to: tread the theatre boards, excel with their musical instrument, study Science at university or become a top athlete, our broad programme is designed to enable everyone to succeed.  With over 1700 students and 200 staff, we take pride in being friendly, caring and supportive toward each other.   We encourage all students and staff to embrace and share our vision and to uphold our values and ethos.
