Community

Brentwood County High has a long tradition of engaging positively with its community. Our community stretches from the local to the global and we try to support, work with and include our community in all that we do.

As part of the Osborne Trust (formerly St. Clere’s) we are part of a community of Co-operative Schools who work together and support each other for the benefit of all our students. As a small group of Primary and Secondary schools this presents many opportunities for teamworking, competition and unique opportunities for our students. Examples include our annual Co-operative Games sporting event and our involvement with the Diversity Champions programme, offering life changing experiences within school and outside of school.    

We work closely with our feeder primary schools by offering every Year 5 student from 22 schools the chance to attend one of our Saturday Masterclasses where they can participate in a range of activities in science, sport, expressive arts and technology. Our staff and students also visit our local primary schools and invite pupils to activities in science, sport and our library events.

Our community involvement with many local charity groups and other organisations provides volunteering opportunities through our Duke of Edinburgh programme giving our students a different view of their local area.

On a global scale we work as part of the World Challenge and students have worked on projects in Ecuador, Kenya and Tanzania in recent years. As part of the Diversity Champions programme we are involved in life changing projects with other local schools in the USA and France during 2018.
