The education of your child is one of the most important decisions you will make as a parent and I am delighted that you are considering Brooke Weston Academy.
The vision of our founders was to create a school that relentlessly focused on helping every student meet their potential in order to open up a lifetime of opportunities. For more than 25 years, Brooke Weston Academy’s staff and students have risen to this challenge and turned our founders vision into reality’.
Today, Brooke Weston Academy is one of the most successful comprehensive schools in the country. Our focus on outstanding teaching, deep pastoral care and a creative curriculum means that every student thrives.
We work hard to develop curiosity, a love of learning, resilience and kindness in our students. Brooke Weston Academy’s success has been recognised with an outstanding judgement from Ofsted and we are helping lead the education system through our work as the lead school of the Brooke Weston Teaching School Alliance.
We are proud of our academic record and our results in both Year 11 and the Sixth Form are outstanding. However, we are about so much more than just academic success. Day to day the academy is filled with students participating in vibrant music, arts and drama, as well as engaging lessons in science, maths and the humanities among others. As a school we offer an extensive range of sports, charity events, trips and expeditions, all of which combine to create a caring and highly successful academy.
Mr Peter Kirkbride
Head Boy Sharon Sajan is studying four A Levels and has ambitions to study medicine at university. He said: ‘Although I joined Brooke Weston Academy relatively recently at the start of Year 12, I wanted the role as I would like to contribute as much as possible in a new environment. I try to take every opportunity I am given.
‘Being Head Boy will give me the opportunity to practice leadership and public speaking. I have got good organisational and interpersonal skills and I try to develop my networking as well.
‘I have interests in photography and have played basketball. I have also worked at the Kumon tuition centre for about three years teaching students. The trick is to balance school life with this new extra role. It will be a challenge at first but I am pretty organised.’
Madysun Buchanan, who is studying three A Levels, hopes to be a forensic chemist. She said: ‘When I started in Year 7 there wasn’t a Head Girl role so when it was introduced it was something I really aspired to be. I didn’t have the easiest start in Year 7 and Brooke Weston Academy did a lot for me.
‘I wanted to be able to give something back and show that I was appreciative and even though situations might be hard you can get through. I am a bit nervous with public speaking so I think the role will help with that.
‘I consider myself a people person so if anyone has any issues I feel I can understand their situation. The challenge as Head Girl is always having to be on point and making sure that you are a role model for the younger students.’
We are looking forward to welcoming prospective 6th formers on Thursday 14th November from 6-8 pm.
