  • “Couldn’t be happier as a parent with all that Brookfield has done for my daughter.”
  • “Brookfield is a lovely school; the children are always so polite and friendly.”
  • “Where do I start? The kindness shown to both myself and my son by the teachers and SLT; the level of professionalism and dedication; the excellent standard of teaching; the confidence and self-belief that has been instilled in my son … I could go on!!”
  • “Good partnership ~ with variety of ways to involve the parents in workshops, interactive visits to raise money, cake and tea events etc.”
  • “My child has really enjoyed their time at Brookfield.”
  • “Our daughter’s short time at Brookfield has improved her education considerably. She has been given reassurance and confidence through all subjects, sports, visits and clubs, helping her to flourish in a safe and calm school. Teachers have all gone the extra mile and organised the best extra-curricular days (like camping in the school hall, or helping together with the STEM project ~ which was one of the chances we got to see all their efforts while visiting the school). We shall miss Brookfield, but know that our daughter is ready for secondary school in respect of life changes. Keep up the great efforts!”
