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.

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 are proud of the excellent academic record the school is building up, but believe it should be matched by a rich variety of experiences both inside and outside the classroom to enable children to develop wisdom and resilience alongside knowledge and skills.

Both teaching and support staff bring a high level of expertise to the school, in a number of areas. There is specialist music teaching and specialist sports teaching for pupils every week. In the summer term Y6 learn to sail at Carsington Water and younger children have a weekly Forest Schools session. There is an annual residential trip for Y5 and 6. We love teaching Maths!

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.

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


Mrs E.V. Moorsom
