Welcome to William Brookes School

We are celebrating the school’s best ever GCSE results. 82% of students secured 5 or more A*-C grades with 73% including English and Maths. 23% of all entries were graded at A*-A with 52% at A*-B. 96% of students gained 5+A*-G including English and Maths.

Mr Renwick is full of praise for students and teachers alike: “Our students and our excellent teaching team thoroughly deserve this excellent set of GCSE grades for their hard work and commitment. As the only Coubertin school in Great Britain, it is lovely that we have performed at the same high level as Team GB this summer!”

Chair of Governors, Catherine Connery added: “We are extremely proud of our GCSE students’ well-deserved success and of our dedicated teachers. These superb results demonstrate a strong improvement in academic performance and place us firmly amongst the top of the county’s comprehensive schools”.

15 Year 11 students gained 9 or more A/A* with Connor Bennett and Charlotte Casteleyn sweeping the board with 11 GCSEs at A*; Oliver Shires got 7A*, 3A and a B; Tom Nock and Evyn Woodhouse gained 5A*, 5A and a B; Hannah Broadley and Jade Bruce obtained 5A* and 4A grades in their results.

We strive to be the

“best we can be through courtesy, enterprise and endeavour”.

With over 960 students on the roll, William Brookes School is a successful school situated in the picturesque town of Much Wenlock. Approximately ten miles from the centre of Shrewsbury, the School serves a community of small villages and the bigger town of Broseley.

Academic standards at the school are high and frequently among the highest in the county, thanks to highly motivated staff, children who wish to learn and parents who support them.

Our high standards are maintained by caring and creating a climate of trust and mutual support between all who work in the school, ensuring all students leave with qualifications and skills needed for a successful life.

The school underwent a complete rebuild in 2010 making it the only school in Shropshire to have a building fully equipped for 21st century learning, although we continually look to improve our excellent facilities and resources for learning. We also have a large Leisure Centre, swimming pool and 3G pitch, which are jointly managed and available for use by students and staff during the day.

We have a specialism in the Performing Arts and have excellent facilities inside the Edge Arts centre for public and school performances. These include a Dance and Drama studio, a Lecture Theatre and Cinema alongside the main Performance studio.
