About Brimsham Green School
A Little About Us...
Our school is a mixed comprehensive, maintained by South Gloucestershire Local Authority. We are situated in large, well-maintained school grounds in Yate (a 30 minute commute from central Bristol). Larger than average for a secondary school, we offer 1,235 places to 11-19 year olds when fully subscribed.
A Warm Welcome
Visitors to the school consistently comment on how friendly and welcoming Brimsham staff and students are. This matters to us. We believe that students and staff thrive when they feel well-supported and cared for, and this enables them to flourish.
Inspiring ALL to Excel
Our shared vision is to inspire ALL students to excel. We firmly believe that our learners have limitless potential, and our responsibility is to nurture this talent, so that students and staff achieve more than they thought possible.
So, how do we translate this into reality? We promote skills and values that are important to us, such as independence and aspiration, and a deeply held belief that 'better never stops'.
Most importantly we aim to develop hardworking, independent learners who themselves are motivated to achieve. Being confident, being ambitious, aspiring to be the next generation of leaders - these are all attributes we value.
Above all else though we understand that teaching and learning does not just happen in classrooms, or stop at the school gate, so we actively work with parents and community-based projects to give our students the very best opportunities to succeed.
Our school community is proudly inclusive, and we focus on celebrating our differences so that we better understand each other and the community within which we live. Ultimately we are proud that our students leave us with the personal qualities and academic qualifications to lead happy, successful lives, achieving more than they thought possible.
