As Headteacher, it is my pleasure to offer you a warm welcome to Brandles School. We are a secondary school that specialises in catering for boys with emotional, behavioural and mental health needs. Ours is a successful, warm, welcoming, happy school with a huge range of clubs, visits and other enrichment opportunities for our young people. Our staff work very hard and genuinely care about the achievement and wellbeing of every student.
We have high expectations of those who join us; we expect students to try hard and insist on the strictest standards of behaviour and conduct. In return we offer the highest standards of support, encouragement and teaching that our staff can provide.
In short, we want all of our students to flourish and our aim is to bring out the best in all of them.
If you would like to know more about the school or indeed if you would like to visit us during the day, then please do not hesitate to contact us; we would be delighted to hear from you.
