Welcome Message from The Headteacher
A very warm welcome to our website! We hope that it will provide you with a good insight into our vibrant, happy and successful school.
On behalf of the children, staff and governors, I would like to offer a very warm welcome to Brook Community Primary School.
I have been the Headteacher at Brook since September 2022 after many years of Primary Teaching experience as well as eight years of successful Senior Leadership experience, both in Kent and Greenwich. I fell in love with Brook when I first came to visit and feel privileged to be the Headteacher here. I am incredibly lucky to have inherited an amazing team of talented, hardworking and dedicated staff, as well as, more importantly, fantastic pupils and families.
Brook School was first established in 1876 and the main building dates back to then. Our school is a warm and close-knit community, inspired by our beautiful rural setting in the Wye Downs. We have amazing outside spaces, and access to even more in the surrounding countryside.
We are located between the large town of Ashford and the many rural villages in the area. Each year we take up to 15 new children in our Reception class: Little Acorns. We currently have children who attend from different areas of the town as well as surrounding villages.
Being such as small school has great benefits. Every member of staff knows every child and family, not only by name but each unique personality too. This ensures we always put the children at the heart of all we do so we can enable each and every child to flourish.
We are on a journey of continuous improvement and our drive will never cease. I am passionate about every child reaching their full potential whilst having a wonderful time at Primary School, and leaving ready and excited for the next stage of their learning adventure.
If you require further information, or would like to visit, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
With very best wishes,
Mrs. Ellen Ranson-McCabe
