Lees Brook Community School has approximately 1,120 students, including 80 in the Sixth Form. Lees Brook Community School is one of our most recent additions to the Trust and is undergoing an exciting transition period.

The school’s motto ‘Lead, Believe, Create, Succeed’ was chosen by its students and is at the core of everything we do. We are a school that cares for the people within it. We promote a high performance culture that allows everyone to be the best that they can be.

At Lees Brook, we believe how we learn is as important as what we learn and the kind of person we each become matters as much as what we achieve. Each of us is responsible for our actions and our behaviour; each one of us has a right to feel safe, secure and free from bullying in school; each one of us has a right to learn and achieve at the highest level we are capable of. The way in which we deal with other people matters, so we should always treat other people as we would wish to be treated and we learn from our mistakes as well as our successes.
