About Us

Welcome from the Headteacher


Children must be safe at school, and then they must be happy at school, so that they can work as hard as they can and do as well as they can. At Purbrook Park, we pride ourselves on delivering the best quality teaching which is personalised for every individual child. Our excellent team of house leaders and dedicated class tutors ensure exceptional care and support, and first rate communication with pupils, parents, and our local community. Our outstanding teachers are committed to providing a wide range of exciting after school enrichment activities that develop our pupils’ creativity, talents and passion for learning.

Since I joined the school in 2012, we have been on a journey to become one of the highest performing schools in the local area. Congratulations to all our Year 11 pupils on their examination results this year. We are proud of every one of you.   As we are smaller than the average secondary school, this allows us to know our pupils really well. Class sizes are also smaller with a high ratio of adults working with the pupils. This creates a tremendous support network and an engaging school community.

Everyone is welcome to our Open Evening, on Wednesday 18th September 2024. We also offer personal tours during the school day, so that you can see our wonderful pupils and teachers in action! If you would like an individual tour, and/or a meeting with me, please contact Gillian Raymond, our admissions officer, either by phone on (02392) 370351 or by email at
