Unlock Your Potential
Brookes is one of Suffolk’s most remarkable independent schools offering a rural setting, special family environment, a unique child-centred approach to learning and a positive culture of wellbeing.
Each of our students is encouraged and individually supported at every stage, from their earliest years at Cherry Trees Montessori nursery through to their GCSEs in the main school. Being an international school enhances learning and development for all.
Above all, our children are relaxed and happy – the ideal start to unlocking their full potential.

As an inclusive school we embrace diversity!
Academic achievement in a family setting
Wellbeing is our priority, and our students develop confidence and resilience, building strong social and emotional skills. We recognise and value every one of our students as individuals and their education is tailored to meet their needs throughout their school journey.
We are proud of our inclusive approach and ‘positive education’ model, focusing on each child’s natural strengths, enhancing their academic performance and developing their life skills. These foundations will stay with them for life, helping them to grow into dynamic and successful global citizens.
My children have been at Brookes for just over a year, they both enjoy it and look forward to going to school every day. My daughter in particular is very enthusiastic and thrives in the stimulating nursery environment. She cannot wait to start school properly and attend full time. I like the fact it is small, that there is a nurturing and caring atmosphere and that sport and other non academic subjects like the arts are taken as seriously as the academic ones.
"I'm from Mexico and everyone would imagine that it would be a hard adaptation to study in a place far away from home, however, the students and teachers made it very easy. They were always friendly and made me feel at home from the first moment."
Pupils’ social awareness is excellent as a result of the harmonious and respectful relationships that characterise the school environment. Pupils learn to respect and value diversity and they show excellent sensitivity and tolerance to those from different backgrounds. Pupils have high levels of moral conscience and the kindness and support they show towards one another is outstanding.
'Brookes' is an exceptional school community. Our four children are highly valued as individuals. They have made outstanding progress and have been given an array of enrichment opportunities in addition to the broad curriculum. Our youngest child has been attending Brookes for the last eight years. There is no other place we want them to be and we feel assured they are going to grow up to be confident, well rounded and respectful young adults with the education and tools enabling them to find their special place in the world.
Brookes is the perfect school for my children ranging between the ages of 14 and 8. There are sports, drama, academia, arts, music - a wonderful array of activities, clubs and trips to suit a broad spectrum of a child's gifts, needs and talents. Thank you Brookes.
