Our success with regard to our exam results improved last year and student outcomes, reflecting the hard work of both the students and staff alike were some of the best for several years. This gave everyone (students and staff alike) an immense pride in what we, the Brooksbank family have managed to achieve together.

About The Brooksbank School

The Brooksbank School is the largest comprehensive secondary school in Calderdale with over 1,800 students currently on roll including over 300 in the Sixth Form. The school is popular with parents and is heavily oversubscribed.

Elland is situated in Calderdale and neighboured by the towns of Halifax and Huddersfield. It is conveniently placed for access to the M62 and lies within 15 miles of Leeds and 20 miles of Manchester. Some of the most attractive countryside in Britain – the Yorkshire Dales – is but a short distance way, whilst the Lakes, Peak District and North Yorkshire Moors are also easily accessible.

We became an Academy in October 2011 having previously been a grant maintained and then foundation school. The Academy Trust owns the site and buildings and employs the staff. The school employs over 110 teaching staff and a further 70 support staff to enable the successful delivery of a comprehensive and differentiated curriculum to ensure that all our students aspire and achieve.

Departments are well resourced for running expenses with a further opportunity to bid for extra funds for special projects. Every classroom has access to an interactive whiteboard and there are over 1,600 PCs/laptops across the campus. Alongside a hard-wired network that covers the whole site. All areas have access to the school Wi-Fi.

We have a large campus with sufficient specialist accommodation to teach all subjects in their own dedicated areas. Recently we have added a new post-16 art facility as well as investing in dining and student social areas. In addition we have excellent sports facilities including a four-court sports hall, fitness suite, two gyms, a dance studio and a number of football and rugby pitches. A new sports park has recently been developed which includes a closed track for cycle training and youth racing and we have recently opened a brand new 3G (artificial grass) football and rugby pitch. Our campus is used outside school hours by many community groups throughout the year. School staff have free access to the fitness suite before and after school.

The school is entering a new phase in its development, following the appointment of a new Headteacher from September 2020, the previous incumbent having retired. The school will be consolidating the wealth of excellent practices it currently undertakes aligned to new and exciting strategies that will drive the incessant push for maximising student outcomes and success both academically, socially and culturally. It clearly is an exciting opportunity for the right candidate to help drive forward, at pace the whole school improvement agenda.

The Brooksbank School was also a founder and is a current member of the Valley Learning Partnership. The Valley Learning is a Strategic Learning Partnership created to formalise collaboration between groups of schools in Calderdale and neighbouring areas. The work of Valley Learning Partnership falls into 3 broad categories:

• School Improvement
• Staff training and development
• Business and efficiency
