Bracken Leas Primary School opened in January 1987, welcoming 54 children and only 4 teachers.

Resources were very different back then, as were sports days. The first Bracken Leas sports day was a sponsored event to raise money for school computer equipment. The following academic year 100 children started school in the September.In 1995 the school doubled in size to 420 children due to the new housing development.

Buzzlings and Beelets was established in April 1995 as an early contact group for pre-school children. Over the years the school has had two further extensions, the most extensive of these being the Marsh building. The Marsh building was opened in 1999 by Judith Marsh, widow of Keith Marsh who was a former head of governors at Bracken Leas as well as a former head of Magdalen College School.

Today Bracken Leas is a two form entry primary school with fourteen classes all named after animal homes. The school is well resourced with all the facilities you would expect of a modern school of this size. We are lucky to have a well-stocked library with a wide selection of fiction and non-fiction books for the children in the school to access.

The school boasts a purpose built Food Technology Room with an induction hob to allow children to safely prepare and cook food. We are well equipped with two computer suites as well as iPads, an eco-area, outdoor classroom and extensive grounds.

The Hawksmoor Learning Trust

Bracken Leas joined the Hawksmoor Learning Trust on April 1st 2017. The HLT is a newly formed Multi Academy Trust (MAT) which strives for excellence in all its schools, providing the highest quality education for all pupils. Being part of a MAT enables Bracken Leas to work collaboratively in continuous improvement and innovation, optimising opportunities for sharing resources.

The three principles of The Hawksmoor Learning trust are;

  • Quality
  • Enthusiasm
  • Partnership

These principles guide The Hawksmoor Learning Trust in providing an education of the highest quality. These principles demand that we think and act in highly constructive ways towards each other as colleagues, towards the children who are placed in our care and towards parents in our schools and communities.

We strive for our individual and collective best to achieve excellence for all.
