Working Environment

We are very proud of our building and facilities, which are constantly refurbished and kept in pristine condition and visitors are usually surprised that the building is over 25 years old. Everyone benefits from working in a clean and cared-for environment.

Brooke Weston Academy is set in acres of well-maintained grounds that are invaluable for both sports and nature study. The building is also exceptional and built in a pentagon around a central courtyard. Each two-storey section is connected by a glass link block. Each department has a designated corridor and contains a study area with computers and soft seating.

Specialist facilities are excellent. We have state-of-the-art science laboratories, an electronics studio, wood and metal workshops, dedicated textile and cookery rooms, a drama studio, a dance studio, a music technology suite and music practice rooms.

The Newman Library is well stocked with the latest books, DVDs and audio recordings. It is equipped with banks of computers that are used for both lessons and self-study and laptops that may be loaned. We also have a 300-seater theatre, a smaller lecture theatre and a boardroom.

Sports facilities are also excellent. The indoor sports hall has all the usual facilities and equipment that you would expect. There are also all-weather sports pitches, plus cricket nets and other grass pitches which are used by both students during the day and by the community at evenings and weekends. The latest addition is a modern gym in its own separate building, which is used by the Sixth Form and by the community.

Our restaurant provides a wide choice of delicious breakfasts and lunches although students can bring their own food in if they wish.
