Welcome to Brook House Junior School!

Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to Brook House Junior School. I hope this website proves to be helpful and informative. If you are visiting this website for the first time I hope that you find it gives you a feel for the vibrant and exciting school we believe Brook House Junior School to be.

Our school provides the children with a broad and balanced curriculum which is supplemented by many additional activities including opportunites to play a musical instrument, sports teams, a range of clubs on offer, residential visits from Year 5 and opportunities for every child to perform in drama productions every year.

The school aims to develop the whole child within an environment which is caring, calm, purposeful and happy and one which respects others and recognises individual needs.

If you would like to visit our school please don't hesitate to contact us to make an appointment. I look forward to meeting you.

Who killed Macbeth?

The Young Shakespeare Company arrived in school to stage a performance of Macbeth, which is currently being studied as part of the Year 6 literacy topic.

The actors were fully-dressed and brought the story to life, engaging and interacting with the children throughout. This is a highlight for our Year 6 children.

Remembrance

This year, with Remembrance Sunday falling on the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, we asked the pupils of Brook House to create a poppy of their own, as part of their home learning.

This was to create a special 'Remembrance' display in the school's foyer to also commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women involved in the two World Wars and later conflicts.
