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.
This is an incredibly exciting time for Brakenhale School as we have just moved into our new building in January 2020. We have worked hard to create a dynamic learning environment under the direction of the Headteacher, Jane Coley. Brakenhale School is a rapidly growing, high performing 11-19 secondary school with a strong dedication 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 were judged as Good by Ofsted (January 2019) with 3 Outstanding categories; Leadership and Management, Personal Safety and Behaviour and our Post 16 Provision. We are incredibly proud to be the local secondary school of choice for the fifth year running with over 550 preferences for 210 places for September 2020.
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.
We believe staff welfare is a key part of our ethos and have a wide range of incentives to support staff and ensure they are valued. Employees are also entitled to a range of benefits including CPD programmes, an Employee Assistance Programme, Wellness weeks and reduced gym membership.
