About Brookvale Groby Learning Campus

As a campus we have been through a period of significant change in recent years, having converted to a multi academy trust in 2017 and a merger to a single academy trust from September 2019. Our founding schools were Brookvale High School, an ‘outstanding’ 11-14 high school, and Groby Community College, a 14-19 upper school graded as ‘good with outstanding features’. Now, as a united campus, we meet the educational needs of over 1500 students with over 300 of those enrolled in our Post 16 provisions.

We have a strong ethos of valuing everyone and achieving excellence for all. We set very high standards for our students and ourselves, we work hard, we look after each other, and we are committed to professional learning for all staff. As a consequence the motto we use on a daily basis with our young people is to work hard, be kind which we feel symbolises the culture we aim to create on campus.

We have a spacious semi-rural campus location and most of our students live in the surrounding villages with some travelling from Leicester and its western suburbs.

The Science Department is housed within 4 specialist labs in the Brookvale building and 6 specialist labs in the Groby building, supported by 4 technicians. There is also access to computer suites in both buildings.

We place great emphasis on supporting all our staff to be the best they can be. All colleagues are expected to share good and outstanding practice and we have a strong team of outstanding teachers who coach and support others.

Our students make excellent progress in science, but we are not complacent. We are always looking to improve student progress and enhance subject enthusiasm.

We look forward to hearing from you.
