More Information


The Brakenhale School is an 11 to 19 mixed comprehensive school situated on the southern side of Bracknell town centre. Our brand new campus is now fully open and has created a fantastic environment in which our students can learn and flourish. Our core belief is 'High Expectations and Challenge' and it underpins everything that we do. This commitment to high standards and outstanding teaching has led us to become the school of choice for parents in Bracknell Forest, and being an integral part of our local community is something that we value. 

The Brakenhale School joined the Greenshaw Learning Trust in 2016, and was subsequently graded 'Good' with outstanding features at its last Ofsted inspection in 2019. 

This is an exciting opportunity for a suitable individual to join our community and lead, motivate and inspire all of our stakeholders at The Brakenhale School and ensure that our vision of increasing the life chances for our students continues, both within our school, and across Greenshaw Learning Trust. 

Greenshaw Learning Trust has, at its heart, effective collaboration and the sharing of the very best practice, not only throughout the organisation, but across and with other like-minded educational organisations. This leads to further improvement in the life chances of as many young people as possible. 

The Greenshaw Learning Trust website provides a clear picture of our aspirations and our vision for schools within the Trust; however, please do not hesitate to contact us to seek further information. 

I would also encourage you to visit our website to find out more. We do welcome visits to the school prior to application. If you would like to arrange a visit or if you would like a confidential conversation with Ben Parnell, Director of Secondary Education or would like any further information, please contact his EA, Kate Rimell, on or 07741 811593. 

We are ambitious about diversity and inclusion and very much look forward to receiving applications from candidates whose personal qualities and values reflect those in the person specification and whose experiences also place them in a strong position to deliver the challenges set out in the job description. We encourage applications from candidates regardless of age, disability, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy, marital status, religion, belief, or race.
