Open Evening and School Tours

Welcome to The Emmbrook School.

Dear Parents and Students,

I am delighted to welcome you to The Emmbrook School, even if your ‘visit’ is online. I hope that you will understand that we are forced to do things a little differently this year to keep everyone as safe as possible. 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. I know that this can’t possibly be as good as physically visiting the school, meeting our brilliant staff and amazing students and getting a feel for us in action and, frankly, I am gutted that we do not have the opportunity to show you our fantastic school in operation. However, we are going to do our best to give you an outstanding transition experience.

Every September, I select a quote that sums up our ambition for the year ahead; this year “the sky’s the limit” – 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 videos, during the online 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 (

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
