Starting secondary school is an exciting and important time for you and your child and one which we try to make as easy and enjoyable as possible. At William Brookes School we are fortunate to have a marvellous building housing some excellent learning facilities.

We want students to ‘be the best they can be’ both inside and out of the classroom; using the full range of extra curricular opportunities to further motivate them. We continually strive for a school that is a great place to learn, but we recognise the importance of forging a relationship with parents in the process. That is why we invite you along to three separate Parental Induction Evenings as your child begins their last year at primary school. These events give you the opportunity to understand how the school works and to meet some of the key members of staff at William Brookes.

We provide opportunities to aid a smooth transition to the school. We also visit all students’ home school to ensure that we know them individually before they join us for two induction days during July, where students are familiarised with the building and introduced to the timetable and the staff they will be taught by in Year 7. They also get the chance to enjoy our fantastic catering facilities.

Many of our potential Year 7 students will have been involved in activities and events at William Brookes long before they start their academic life here, be it at ‘Transition Camp’; Primary Sports Day; Wenlock Olympians Cricket Tournament; Primary Dance Festival and Encore! Club – our after school Dance and Drama club offering youngsters the opportunity to develop their skills in a modern studio with experienced specialist teachers.

We invite you to find out more about what we offer at our Open Days and look forward to welcoming you into a school we’re all proud of. Come along and experience the special environment where students feel safe and happy to flourish, as individuals within our school family.
