Welcome to Brockington College. I have really enjoyed being the Principal here since May 2019. I hope you find our website full of useful information about our wonderful school and that you are able to gain a sense of our distinctive community.
We are a forward-looking school with traditional values and pride ourselves on our ability to continually evolve to support our community and to provide the best environment for our students. As a result, we have a modern school building with cutting edge resources and maintain a constant drive to ensure teaching methods match the needs of 21st century learners.
Brockington College is a Church of England Academy; we are committed to serving the community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian beliefs and practice. Central to all we do is our mission statement ‘learning to live life to the full’. Taken from John 10:10, it is our aim that all students at Brockington College are able to flourish academically and spiritually, in their talents and through their character.
The school was recognised by OFSTED as good (2022) and judged at its most recent SIAMS inspection to be excellent (2023).

Compassion is about putting yourself in someone else’s shoes and experiencing what they experience. This leads to a desire to act to do something. Compassion requires an act of imagination and humility to share in the lives of others.
"When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd." (Matthew 9:36)
Forgiveness is fundamental in a Christian school. Forgiveness is at the heart of everything we do and it is our aim to keep on forgiving without limit. Forgiveness requires both an acceptance and acknowledgement of what has gone wrong and a genuine desire not to do it again.
"Forgive one another as quickly and thoroughly as God in Christ forgave you." (Ephesians 4:32)
Justice is multi-faceted. It is about giving all people what is right and fair for them to have, such as freedom and dignity. It is about acting out of a concern for what is right and therefore holding people to account. Justice is about creating a community that knows everyone’s wellbeing is bound up with that of everyone else, and is not just about a culture which encourages everyone to insist on their own rights at the expense of others.
"Turn your back on evil, work for the good and don’t quit. God loves this kind of thing, never turns away from his friends." (Psalms 37:27-28)
Koinonia can often be translated as ‘fellowship’ or ‘partnership’. Koinonia expresses the quality of the relationships within a Christian community which are like those of a family. Central to any family is interdependence. Everyone is needed and valued and important to the whole group. Each member of the family shares the joys and sufferings of the others and everyone depends upon everyone else.
"So speak encouraging words to one another. Build up hope so you’ll all be together in this, no one left out, no one left behind." (1 Thessalonians 5:11)
Learning is at the centre of our school motto and encompasses all of the other school values. It is about being taught, being able to discover and understand. By modelling, teaching and discussing each of the school values, we are enabling ourselves and our students to achieve our vision of ‘learning to live life to the full’.
"Wise men and women are always learning, always listening for fresh insights." - (Proverbs 18:15)
Perseverance is linked to patience and suffering. Perseverance is about developing and building your character by dealing with a range of situations positively and never giving up. It is linked to self-control and a recognition that life is sometimes difficult and painful and it is important not to give up. Perseverance is only possible when there is hope and hope is based on love and faithfulness.
"Never get tired of doing good." (2 Thessalonians 3:13)
Respect is central to an effective, democratic society in which the views of all are heard and respected, even if different from our own. By treating all members of our school community with dignity, respect and value we model the example that Jesus gave us as he lived his life on earth meeting thousands of people.
"Respect the authorities, whatever their level; they are God’s emissaries for keeping order... Treat everyone you meet with dignity." (1 Peter 2:17)
Wisdom is insight into the way life works – a proper understanding of the consequences of our thoughts words and actions. Wisdom is discernment gained through life experience. The opposite of wisdom is foolishness, which is a wrong understanding of life. Foolishness is a lack of recognition of the true value of things and leads to people putting their trust in the wrong things.
"Don’t turn your back on wisdom, for she will protect you. Love her, and she will guard you. Getting wisdom is the wisest thing you can do!" (Proverbs 4:6-7)
Central to all that we do is our Christian collective worship, which is outworked during our daily spiritual reflection time. By reflecting upon all that we do in light of the Christian faith, the example that Jesus was, and our values, we are able to develop a greater understanding of our place in world. Thus, allowing us to look beyond ourselves and develop a sense of community (Koinonia) that ultimately drives us to care for others and our planet.
