“Success for Everyone”

 

FoPBS Christmas Fayre 2017

 

Graduation Ceremony 2017

 

Welcome to Pebble Brook School

Welcome to Pebble Brook School.  We are a Bucks Local Authority school for 120 pupils with specific learning difficulties serving pupils from across the County.

 

Our philosophy is deliberately simple.  Everyone at our school is given a chance to succeed.  We know all our pupils very well and we make sure they are happy and safe, they are taught well and that they are given everything they need to take their steps into the adult world.

 

Our classes are small so that we can individualise and personalise activities.  Progress is expected in every lesson and we offer additional support from speech and language therapy, occupational therapy and behaviour specialists.

 

We give plenty of attention to achieving quality qualifications in English, Maths, Science, PE, ICT, Design and Technology and Food Technology.

 

Further to this we develop personal skills through the ASDAN Award and offer vocational subjects in small animal care, painting and decorating, construction, horticulture, health and social care, art and design and sports leadership.

We also link with Aylesbury college in offering motor mechanics and fashion and provide a wide range of work experiences..

 

Running through our lessons and leisure time are direct strategies to help our pupils grow as young citizens.  We believe strongly in Personal, Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development and this is assessed, monitored and developed across all year groups.

 

What is the most important thing to have when you leave our school?  We don't know exactly what it is yet, but we will do all we can to make sure it is the right thing for you and that it is what you want.

 

We are very proud of the fact that all our pupils leave with employment, an apprenticeship or a college course.  We are also very proud of their positive attitude and positive approach to being a part of the community they are about to enter.

 

Pebble Brook also has after school clubs on four nights a week and a boarding facility where pupils can extend all aspects of their development.

 

Our families and friends are part of our school.  We hope you feel well supported and have all the information and opportunities you need to join in your child's success.  

 

Everyone knows everyone else in our school.  It is a special feature and one we join together with openness and warmth to create somewhere that brings out the best in everyone.

 

Best wishes

David Miller

Headteacher

 

Annual FoPBS Christmas Fayre best ever!

 

Pupils, staff, parents, and friends of the school attended the annual Christmas Fayre held on Friday 1st December with the best fundraising results ever! There were many goodies for sale, most of which were made/provided by the pupils themselves. 

 

Pebble Brook supporting Team Domenica

 

The BBC1 Breakfast show has been featuring "Special Needs" all week. Only 6% of young people with learning disabilities are currently in employment. Pebble Brook School's rate of success for its students leaving straight into employment to date is 45%.

 

We have worked to support Team Domenica featured on the show - See link: http://www.teamdomenica.com/latest-news/

 

Pebble Brook Annual Celebration afternoon 2017

 

The whole school came together to celebrate the amazing success of our pupils in their external examinations.  Every year the number of qualifications and the variety of courses grows larger and 2016-2017 was our best year yet. Over half of our school achieved external success and we welcomed back a further eleven ex pupils.

 

Mr Miller explained that our school can help everyone achieve short but important steps everyday and these steps accumulate to give not only the qualifications but, more importantly, the great young people who form our school population.

 

Adil replied on behalf of the pupils and thanked all the staff for helping to create such unique individuals.
