Open Evening and School Tours

Welcome to The Emmbrook School.

Dear Parents and Students,

I am delighted to welcome you to The Emmbrook School. As a father of two (both at secondary school), I am acutely aware that choosing the right school is such a significant decision. This page will offer you a digital introduction to The Emmbrook.

Every September, I select a quote that sums up our ambition for the year ahead; this year “Reach for the stars” – I know it’s cheesy, but it’s important to me that we all work hard to keep this school fun, caring and engaging so that every student will achieve academic and personal excellence.

I hope to meet you in one form or another in the coming weeks, via our tours, during the open evenings or at one of my online morning meetings for parents. Information regarding all these events can be found below. In the meantime, if I can assist you personally, then please do contact me (nmcsweeney@emmbrook.wokingham.sch.uk).

The schools in Wokingham are excellent, that should make this process easier, but somehow it makes it harder! Good luck with choosing the school that is right for you.

Best wishes,

Nick McSweeney

Results 2021

This was a record breaking year for GCSE results and our students and their families are rightly thrilled.

The rigorous Teacher Assessed Grade process meant that we were able to judge the students’ performance using a wide range of evidence drawn from the last two years, which was a fair way to assess our young people. They deserve all the credit for their hard work and dedication.

There is no doubt that last year provided numerous challenges for our fantastic students and they have shown just how resilient they are throughout and they should be incredibly proud of themselves.

We are so proud of every single one of them for their continued effort, diligence and ambition.

Meet the Head

We ran a series of 'Meet the Headteacher' video chat sessions from September 21st until October 2nd. These allowed over 100 families to spend time with Mr McSweeney (over video conferencing software) and ask pertinent questions about the school.  Watch a recording of one of the videos below.
