School Ethos


Brooklands serves its community by providing a caring, safe happy and protective environment in which each student can develop their full potential. During the Middle Years our young people grow and mature into confident, hardworking and caring young people. They embrace the high expectations we have of them to achieve academic and personal success and acquire strong values, display good conduct and show respect for themselves and others. This is encapsulated in our Mission Statement - ‘High Expectation High Achievement’.
