Welcome

Hero-home-main-1.jpg

Brakenhale is an 11–19 mixed comprehensive school situated on the southern side of Bracknell. The majority of our students are local, coming from a number of different housing estates and we enjoy positive links with primary schools in the area.

We are the fastest growing secondary school in Bracknell Forest, which is something we have worked hard to achieve and are very proud of.

Our examination results have improved significantly across the last two years. Many students at Brakenhale are leaving with results far in excess of what they had been predicted to achieve against national benchmarks with a significant increase in students gaining top grades across the board. This is an outstanding achievement and shows that our drive and commitment to improve the life chances of all our students is working. I am very proud to work alongside established teachers and leaders with a proven track record in delivering high quality learning results with excellent outcomes for students.

About Us

The school has a very strong ethos centred on the belief that every student has the right to achieve their potential. It is this, which drives and motivates all members of our community in supporting all of our students in their learning. I have very high standards and expectations of our students, which they continue to meet. The changes that we have brought about to the school they have embraced with great passion. Brakenhale students are an exceptional group of young people who play a significant role in creating a warm positive and friendly community that has a very special feel to it.

Our vision is to create a positive learning environment fully centred around the principle that every student has the right to achieve their potential. It is this which drives and motivates all members of our community in supporting all of our students in their learning. This vision is underpinned by our core belief in “High Expectations and Challenge”, a belief which permeates everything that we do.

We strive at all times to create opportunities for young people to enable them to experience the very best education possible and we continually work to support them in all that they do in order for them to leave us with the very best start to adulthood.
