Williams Brookes School

Discover William Brookes Olympic values

William Brookes is a unique 11-18 school; being the only Coubertin School in Britain and is a place where Olympian values and themes infuse every aspect of school life. Our modern building has been designed to support both great learning and performance in sporting activities or the performing arts. Our tutor groups and house system build relationships that forge an important sense of belonging, pride and community.

We are committed to helping every young person become the very best version of themselves that they can possibly be. Academic success provides the keys for our students to unlock doors to apprenticeships, higher education and rewarding careers. Learning at William Brookes is not just about academic success; it is also about educating the heart and helping every young person discover their inner passion. Performance matters, because whether that be on the court, stage or pitch, students learn the value of hard work; to know the importance of practise and of not letting your team down. These are important lessons that we hope that they carry on into their adult lives.

We have high expectations of manners and behaviour, of uniform and expect that our students work hard and demonstrate our school values of excellence, respect, kindness, hard work and friendship. We want our young people to feel safe, to thrive and be deeply proud of their school.
