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.

Mark Hinchliff  Headteacher


Latest News from Brook House Junior ...

Online Safety Week

Within school this week our children have been learning about how to stay safe on the internet.

Each year group focused on a different aspect of online safety and presented their work in our Wicked Work assembly.

See what each of our year groups learnt during Online Safety Week on News from Brook House ...


Year 5 Residential

The Year 5 pupils enjoyed an overnight stay in York.

This was our first visit to York as a residential and was packed with interesting and fun filled activities, such as finding treasures in a Dig and seeing ancient York being brought to life in Jorvic.

All activities undertaken brought the learning in the classroom well and truly to life, and enriched their education. The children were a credit to the school with their behaviour on this trip. We look forward to repeating it next year.

Creature Invasion

Our Year 6 pupils enjoyed a morning meeting creatures as part of their topic on Brazil.

The visit reinforced the knowledge and understanding of creatures and their habitats. In addition, children were able to hold different animals such as snakes, lizards and spiders.

The visit was a huge success with both teachers and pupils enjoying the experience.

Thank you, Asda!

A HUGE thank you to all the parents, grandparents and carers who shopped at Asda Drakehouse in the lead up to Christmas to support the green token campaign to 'Shop for FOBBINS' - we actually won the first prize of £500!

Nanette, the community fundraiser at Asda, does a super job supporting the community and has been really helpful and supportive. FOBBINS will divide this between the Infant and Junior schools, so hopefully it will help in some way. Thanks again for all the support.

Y3 visit Weston Park

Our Year 3 children took a tram ride to Weston Park Museum as part of their Egyptian topic.

Here they learnt how to embalm and make a mummy just like the Ancient Egyptians.

The children also spent some time becoming history detectives and examining artefacts and making a Shabti, a pocket-sized servant. They have enjoyed continuing the theme during class and are making items for an exhibition in school.

Young Voices

Our school secured a place for a school choir at the Young Voices concert at Sheffield Arena in January.

This was an amazing opportunity for our children to perform to a full arena audience of thousands and take part in a children's choir containing approximately 6000.

The children were fantastic, turning up for rehearsals during their lunchtime and were extremely well behaved during the day. They were a credit to the school. Thank you to all parents and staff who attended the Arena to support our children.

Celebrating Good Attendance

As a school we are always striving to improve our attendance. It goes without saying that all research shows that regular attendance enhances children's chances of achieving well at school.

Our school target is 97%. It has been 97% for a few years now and we still haven't achieved it. The good news is at the moment we are currently on track to achieve it, which is brilliant.

We have made some tweaks to how we celebrate and communicate with parents in regards to attendance which are outlined in our Celebrating Good Attendance letter to parents.

Exciting Playground Plans!

This picture shows the exciting plans we have for our outside area in the coming year.

We are committed to making our outside area an amazing play space for our children so playtimes can be as fun and enjoyable as possible.

All our fund raising is now focused on this project. We hope you can support us in the coming year to make our dream possible!
