About Lees Brook Community School
Lees Brook Community School is a co-educational academy school based in Derby for students aged 11-18.
The school has a football development centre which includes a 3G football pitch and changing rooms. The pitch and changing rooms were officially opened in 2009 by Sir Trevor Brooking following a £1.15 million grant from Football Foundation, the Football Association and Derby City Council. The facility is the training and coaching venue for many local teams, including Derby County Ladies FC.
Values and vision
Lees Brook Community School views how students learn to be as important as what students learn. It considers the kind of person each student becomes to matter as much as what each student achieves.
Each student at the school is viewed as responsible for their actions and behaviour. It is also believed that each student has a right to learn and achieve at the highest level they are capable of. Students are taught that the way in which they deal with other people matters, and so they should always treat other people as they would wish to be treated themselves. They are taught to learn from their mistakes as well as their successes.
“Senior leaders and governors are committed to the school… Some teaching is highly effective and, where this is the case, pupils make good progress. Pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities, including those who make use of the enhanced resource provision, make good progress.”
