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

 

Art Exhibition

 

The PBS Art Show was a great success with a varied showcase of talent, from visual to musical arts.  The school choir performed for a small audience of parents and staff as an example of our progress in the Performing Arts. They were wonderfully enthusiastic and it showed in their energetic renditions of classics like Space Oddity by David Bowie. Miss Vaughan was very proud of them. 
The examples of artworks from students included both 3D and 2D pieces and showcased skills and techniques that students have been developing over the past 12 months. It was an opportunity for students to take pride in their achievements and receive positive feedback from those closest to them. It was lovely to see the pride of their parents and teachers as they were shown around the exhibition by the students.
Thank you to all the parents who came in to support their talented children. We hoped you enjoyed the evening. And may this be a first of more to come.

Bisham Abbey Rivertime Regatta

School impressed royalty at the Rivertime

Regatta at Bisham Abbey on the 14 th June 2017.

 

HRH Princess Ann was delighted to meet our

students and award then all with a medal for

competing in the Bellboat race. Our students took

to the water like little ducks and loved every

second of being on the River Thames. I was most

impressed with Josh who overcame his fears

about being on the water. Our pupils also took

part in other events such as Kayaka tadium and

single, canoe, stand up paddleboard and

wheelyboat.

 

The students had a fantastic day out. We are so

looking forward to next year.
