Brassington School Ofsted Report

You won't find us in the 2017 performance tables, published in December, as it was a small cohort, but the children's results were even better than in 2016.





Dear Parents and Visitors,

Please enjoy browsing the website to find out more about Brassington school. You can contact us on 01629 540212 or email enquiries@brassington.derbyshire.sch.uk for more detailed information.

Mrs Wilson in the office will be pleased to speak to you and respond to enquiries.

Brassington is a village school located in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside. It is small enough for every child to be known as an individual but big enough for there to be a wide range of opportunities available to the children. Class sizes are small with good staff to pupil ratios. We currently have 56 on role and 3 classes.

We are proud of the excellent academic record the school is building up, with three years of outstanding results in the new 'harder' curriculum.  We don't do endless practice tests or masses of revision in Y6, we just make sure the children get top quality, interesting teaching all year round, in every year group, including Y6. 

There is specialist music teaching and specialist sports teaching for pupils every week. In the summer term Y6 learn to sail at Carsington Water for five weeks. Younger children have a weekly Forest Schools session all year round. There is an annual residential trip for Y5 and 6.

We are proud of all the children's achievements no matter what their starting point. 

Our school motto is

'Bringing out the Best in Everyone' and that is what we strive to do for each individual child who joins Brassington School.

if you would like to know more please get in touch and come to look around.



Miss Sara Griffiths
