About Brookfield Community School

This is a very popular, over-subscribed school in a pleasant suburb to the west of Chesterfield, close to the Peak District National Park. We currently have over 1100 students, including a vibrant sixth form. This is a school with a rich history and a reputation as a truly inclusive school and one which places great value on academic achievement. An extensive extra-curricular offer for all students is another defining characteristic of the school. We have a strong and discernible ethos based around high expectations and impeccable behaviour.

We expect a lot from our students in every area of school life. Celebrating academic achievement is a very significant part of what we do and the school has very strong results at GCSE and A level.

At Brookfield we recognise the vital role that education can play in the lives of young people. Education should be an extremely rich experience - an experience in itself and not just a preparation for the next stage of life. Our mission is to develop confident, articulate, resilient and well-qualified young people who are empowered to change the world. The school, in terms of its academic outcomes, performs well, but it is our aim that the school is in the top 10% of schools nationally, and one with a regional and national reputation for the quality of the high-quality, rounded education it provides.

In March 2019 Brookfield formally joined Redhill Academy Trust. This represents an enormous opportunity for the school. The principles at the heart of Redhill are in line with those of the school. These are based on high expectations for all students, the value of academic achievement, high quality teaching and learning and the importance of widening students’ experiences. Staff at Brookfield are working closely with Redhill and benefiting from the support the Trust offers, such as participation in subject networks and bespoke training programmes. Brookfield staff are already contributing to the wider support that Redhill offers to other schools.

This is a wonderful school with outstanding students, supportive parents and dedicated staff. This enviable combination is a key reason behind the success – and enormous potential – of Brookfield Community School.
