Brockington College is a well oversubscribed 11-16 school, with approximately 1250 students on roll. Our ethos and values are pivotal in all that we do and we are outstanding in this respect. Academic progress is very important to us, but comes second to the development of our young people through the opportunities that we provide them and the values we teach them. Pupil progress in our second year of GCSEs was +0.13, with a cohort of 280 pupils. The key to our success has been building an outstanding staff team who believe in and support our values, such that relationships throughout our school community are extremely strong.

In order to ‘learn to live life to the full’, we place great emphasis in opportunities being available for pupils through school trips, clubs and academic support.

We also value personal, social, health and citizenship education, alongside religious studies for all pupils. It is our belief that our young people need support in preparing for a positive, successful and happy life in our society.
