Brakenhale is an 11–19 mixed comprehensive school situated on the southern side of Bracknell. The majority of our students are local, coming from a number of different housing estates and we enjoy positive links with primary schools in the area.
Brakenhale opened in 1958, and was known at that time as Borough Green City Secondary School. The school records show that the initial school roll, on 7th January 1958, was 266. The oldest of these students was born in September 1942, and the youngest in July 1946.
In January 2020 Brakenhale moved into its new building at the same location in Rectory Lane.
Brakenhale is an academy in the Greenshaw Learning Trust, a charitable company limited by guarantee registered in England & Wales, company number 7633694, registered at Greenshaw Learning Trust, Grennell Road, Sutton, Surrey, SM1 3DY.
Alongside some of our original buildings housing our IT, Art and Sports Departments, our new building covers 3 floors with the school dining hall in a central position on the ground floor with access to the quad and school Library on the first floor with double height ceiling.
