Letter to Parents of Prospective Year 6 Students, Including Important Dates

Admissions

Dear Parents/Carers of Year 6 children

We are very pleased to all be back at school again and have had a positive start to the year, with all students back full-time and great focus being seen in their lessons.

We are also pleased to celebrate another year of very good exam results with 83% (80% in 2019) of students achieving Grade 4 or above in Maths and English respectively and 66% (62% in 2019) of students achieved a Grade 5 and above in both English and Maths. 21% of students gained at least a 7 in Maths and English. The progress made by our students once again will place us in the top few schools across Hampshire.

These pleasing results build on our excellent results over many years and are reflective of our aspirational culture and the absolute commitment of students and staff alike, ensuring that students leave Brookfield equipped and ready to approach the next stage of their education, training or employment with confidence.  There is much to be proud of and to build upon as we begin a new school year.

This year, we will not be holding an Open Evening event but have further developed our website pages for admissions. This link
https://www.brookfield.hants.sch.uk/year6_2021.php will take you to our school website and our 2021 Admissions page where you will find:

  • A new interactive map of the school is now live, with student ‘holograms’ telling you about our school
  • A video virtual tour of our school site
  • A welcome video made by students
  • Presentations from all Heads of Department about what their subjects look like in Year 7 (click on the Hexagon diagram)
  • A link to our School Prospectus
  • Presentations on Personal Development (Miss Robinson, Senior House Leader) and SEN and Additional Support on Transition (Mrs Calder, Student Support Manager & Mr Roberts, SENCO)
  • An opportunity to send us specific questions electronically

Signing up for School Tours has now closed.

We hope that, following the admissions events, Brookfield will be your first-choice school.  If you would like to know more, please contact Mrs Bagley, my Personal Assistant to make an appointment (via Reception or c.bagley@brookfield.hants.sch.uk)

Yours sincerely
Mr S. Parkes
Headteacher
