 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

Pizza 'Bake Off'

 

Congratulations to Melanie and Hoor-Ul- Ain who won our first 'Pizza Bake Off' organised by Mrs Carberry and Miss Bailey.  They created two beautiful pizzas that smelled delicious.

The event was kindly supported by Caprino's pizza, Cambridge Street.  Two managers judged the entries and brought along great prizes, huge 'thank you' to Caprinos.

 

 

Mix 96 Annual Pancake Race

 

2 FED students were part of Mr Bumble's team, from "The Bees Knees" and the team made it through to the final four out of 16 teams.

 

 

 

"Miss Bunny" of Pebble Brook School would have been first in the mascots race had she not dropped her pancake at the first toss!
