Our Ethos

Building Excellence: The Bracken Leas Way 

At Bracken Leas we aim for academic, artistic and athletic excellence in a purposeful, lively, exciting and stimulating setting where expectations, broad and challenging curriculum, excellent facilities, wide range of activities, and talented, dedicated and caring staff, we aim to ensure that every child has the skills, knowledge, understanding and attitude which will enhance their education in a pluralist society. In addition, we ensure they have an experience of school which is memorable; memorable because they laughed a lot as they learned within a happy, caring, safe and well ordered environment in which every child matters.

At Bracken Leas we firmly believe that every child is A.B.L.E. This is reflected in our school motto: ACHIEVE, BELIEVE, LEARN, ENJOY.

We make this happen through our actions every day at our school.
