Welcome to Lees Brook Community School

At Lees Brook you will find a well-ordered, caring environment in which youngsters quickly develop confidence. This is supported by high standards of professionalism from our enthusiastic and well qualified staff. Good relationships and mutual respect flourish in an atmosphere that is relaxed but purposeful. We have high expectations and demand a great deal of our students and of ourselves.

Learning and achievement is at the heart of the School. We believe learning should be both enjoyable and challenging and all youngsters, no matter what their ability, can achieve. This applies as much to our students with special educational needs as to those who are academically able, who are gifted and talented in some way, or who have outstanding ability in areas such as sport. Though we are very proud of the results our students have achieved over the years, achievement at Lees Brook is not just measured in success in GCSE or other examinations. Alongside exam success, you will find high levels of achievement in art, dance, drama, ICT and sport, and in other areas of School life such as student leadership. We constantly strive to help each of our students develop the talent she or he possesses. Students feel safe and any instances of bullying are dealt with swiftly and decisively.

The learning climate and culture that has been developed over the years has had tremendous impact on achievement. There are no groups that underachieve and the achievement of vulnerable students is particularly good.

Standards of behaviour are excellent and the way students support and take responsibility for each other reflects their commitment to the values of the School. They know that, over the years, they have made, and continue to make, Lees Brook the very special place that it has become. In other words, if Lees Brook is a good school, it is so because of them.

In November 2014 we will move into a brand new main school building. This will join the other new, high quality, state of the art facilities at the school - The Skills Academy (post 16 Centre), the Construction Centre, and the ATP (Artificial Turf Pitch) and changing rooms.

Lees Brook has established a reputation for being innovative and forward looking, but with a disciplined learning environment that encourages and enables youngsters to succeed – a true community for learning.
