Welcome to Plantsbrook School,  I am very proud to be our Headteacher.

At Plantsbrook we are fully committed to providing the best opportunities for our students to allow them to develop into fine young people and to achieve success.  We want all Plantsbrook students to enjoy school and to make the most of each and every opportunity that comes their way.  We want them to enjoy learning and recognise its importance in enabling them “to be the best that they can be”.  We want them to feel safe and comfortable in their school community and to feel part of the Plantsbrook family, which is supportive yet challenging.  Above all we want them to be committed to hard work, good behaviour and to have respect for each other and themselves.  

At Plantsbrook we firmly believe in strong partnerships, which informs our approach to working with parents and supporting our students to meet their full potential.  We strive to keep getting better at what we do and we work tirelessly to live by our school motto, we similarly expect our students to perform to their best.  We offer a broad and challenging curriculum that seeks to develop the key skills, values and knowledge and understanding that will allow our youngsters to be inquisitive, informed and prepared for the challenges of the modern world.

At Plantsbrook we understand the informed choices that education brings, which is why we focus our energies on enabling our students to make the right choices in all that they do.  We recognise they sometimes make mistakes.  When they do, all we ask from them is that they learn from the experience and ensure they do not repeat them.  We are committed to creating a caring and supportive environment with high expectations and excellent behaviour.  I am very proud to be Plantsbrook and I hope you are too.

About Us

At Plantsbrook, we aim to be a learning, caring, successful school, serving the community and preparing our students for the opportunities of adult life in the 21st century. 

We will prepare students to become responsible citizens, able to take advantage of the opportunities of adult life, and respectful of the values and cultures of others. We pride ourselves on being a caring school. We aim to provide an environment that is:-

  • Happy
  • Secure
  • Friendly

At Plantsbrook, we are proud to be a comprehensive school. We say to all of our students from the most able to those with learning difficulties: “Be the best that you can be”. The achievement and progress of our students are outstanding. All students follow a broad and balanced curriculum designed to develop those skills and qualities that they will need to take them on to the next stage of their lives. We provide challenging extension work to stretch the most able children and there are many enrichment activities for our “Academically more able and talented students”. Teaching Assistants work with children providing additional support in lessons. We also have a unit for a small number of visually impaired students, who add greatly to school life. We believe that you judge a school first by the quality of its staff. Plantsbrook staff are highly motivated, enthusiastic and caring. We spend thousands of pounds each year on training and continuous professional development of our staff of highly qualified specialists. We hold the prestigious ‘Investor in People’ award. This confirms that staff training and performance is managed effectively in school which in turn improves teaching and learning. Lessons are regularly visited by Senior Staff to support teachers and to ensure high standards.
