Dear Parent/Carer

Re: Year 5 Taster Days

Choosing the right secondary school for your child is one of the most important decisions that families make. We know from our own school days that children’s experiences during these five critical years influence the choices that they make, the pathways that they follow and, most significantly, helps shape the young adults that they become.

It is for these reasons that the ethos and values that we actively promote at Brookfield provide the foundations for each student’s happiness, achievement and success, to be the best that he/she can be – these are the things that we all want for our children.

The application process begins early in the Autumn Term. To enable your child to find out more about secondary school and particularly Brookfield, we would like to invite all Year 5 pupils to take part in the ‘Taster Day’ programme on Wednesday 20 June 2018.

On the day, your son/daughter will be asked to make his/her own way to Brookfield School, in time to start at 8:30am. They will be met at the pedestrian gate on Brook Lane by our prefects and will spend the day in a variety of lessons. They should come in the school uniform of their current school. Please make sure that they have a packed lunch (with a drink) and also pens, pencils etc. The day ends at 2:40pm and your son/daughter will be taken to the tennis courts nearest the main entrance and dismissed from there. (If it is raining, they will be dismissed from the Main Hall).

In order to ensure the safety of students we ask that parents do not drive on to our site at the beginning and end of the school day.

If you would like your son/daughter to attend a taster day please register by completing the form below no later than Wednesday 13 June 2018. You will receive confirmation that a place has been allocated within 3 working days.

It is very important to us that parents have the opportunity to see how our school runs on a daily basis. Parents will have the opportunity to see Brookfield in action during our Open Day and Evening on Monday 1 October 2018. On this occasion we invite parents and children to join us for a tour of the school followed by an evening of interactive events and a formal presentation; further details will follow at the beginning of the new school year.

Yours sincerely
