Easthampstead Park Community School
About the school
Easthampstead Park Community School is an 11-19 mixed comprehensive school situated in south Bracknell and the majority of our students are local; the Headteacher’s vision is for us to become the first choice destination school for the designated catchment and beyond. There are currently just over 800 students on roll and this number is predicted to rise due to the increasingly popularity of the school and new housing developments in the area.
The governors, staff, students and parents/carers are committed to Easthampstead Park Community School’s status as a community school and our vision is to deliver a school judged as outstanding that lives up to its values and beliefs. We intend to make Easthampstead Park Community School the highest performing community school in the borough and to provide our students with a broad balanced education in a safe and highly stimulating environment. The school is fully inclusive and has facilities to cater for all learning including special physical and education needs. Our facilities are excellent and we have a good range of performance and sports facilities which support both our in-school and our extended school curriculum.
We have an incredibly friendly and supportive staff who enjoy working with a student body that fully reflects our community. The Senior Leadership Team is committed and enthusiastic and is currently expanding to include four Assistant Headteachers and two Senior Teachers, all of whom will have strategic responsibility for a key area in the school’s development. The Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher have been in post for two years, and there is a strong sense that the school is moving forward and we believe that this is an exciting time to join us.
