Many of us have long-standing connections with Brookside Primary School.  Most of us have children who attended Brookside Primary School or who are currently enjoying their education at our wonderful school.


The one thing we all have in common is that we believe that the children and staff at Brookside Primary School are outstanding in every way. We have first hand experience of seeing that the children and staff are committed to our ethos - 'To be happy and successful in everything we do'.
