We are a 2-form Infant school with a private nursery attached right in the heart of Maidenbower – one of its best kept secrets! And no, we are not the one by the shops! We have places in school for 180 children and the nursery holds 30 places in the morning and 24 places in the afternoon per session. We opened in 1999 as a First School originally but we become an Infant school in 2004.

Comment made by a Parent October 2009
‘This is a school where every child really does matter.'
Life at the Brook is fun and filled with laughter and learning! We believe that our school is a special place to learn for children, families and staff. We provide a creative curriculum that draws on childrens’ interests, provides them with key skills for life-long learning and enables them to become effective future citizens in this ever evolving 21st century.
Children learn through our exciting and stimulating indoor and outdoor environment. They have access to a wide range of resources that allow them to develop skills such as problem solving, collaborative work, challenge and perseverance. We work in partnership with parents and our community to ensure that everyone is included and valued.
In our last Ofsted in October 2009, we were given Outstanding. Our behavior, teamwork, eco awareness, attainment and enthusiasm for learning all reflect this.
We are so excited about you being part of our school and hope that your time with us is truly ‘learning with love and laughter!’
