This is a new and exciting time for The Brakenhale School. We have worked hard to create a dynamic learning environment under the direction of the new Headteacher, Jane Coley. The Brakenhale School is a growing, improving 11-19 secondary school with a strong commitment to high standards for students and staff. We are a friendly school, with a firm commitment to providing professional development opportunities for our staff and a passionate belief that every student in our school matters. We are very excited that we were full for September 2016 with our Year 7 cohort, the school has not been in this position for decades and is testimony to its rapid turnaround. Our vision is that The Brakenhale School is an outstanding comprehensive school that is regarded by our local community as their secondary school of choice. Our Progress 8 score is +0.32 which is over half a grade higher than other local schools.
Brakenhale School is an Academy which is part of the successful Greenshaw Learning Trust and this move has only continued to support the rapid progression of the school.
The Brakenhale School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. It is essential that all members of staff and volunteers share this commitment. An enhanced DBS disclosure is required for all posts.
