Welcome from the Chair of Governors

 

Dear All,

 

It is a pleasure and a privilege to introduce our school to you in this website.

 

Brook Street School continues to develop and improve and was recently categorised as a ‘Good’ school during the OFSTED inspection. The school is working hard to extend the range of educational experiences available to the children and to the community. The school has a very good reputation throughout Cumbria for its work with all children including our EAL children.  An excellent team of teaching, non-teaching and administrative staff, led by Jonathan Bursnall the Headteacher, ensures our pupils thrive in a happy stimulating environment.

 

At Brook Street the support from parents and the local community is recognised as a contribution to the success of the school.

 

The school buildings and play areas continue to be improved to provide even better facilities for the future.

 

We look forward to welcoming a new generation to Brook Street School.

 

Mr Lawrence Fisher

How To Become a Governor

Do you have the experience and ability to be a Governor of Brook Street School? We are looking for reliable and committed community members who would like to make a positive contribution to the continued success of the school.  If you have experience in business, education or industry that would be great but the most important thing is a willingness to become involved in the life of the school and how it is managed.
