Head of School's Welcome - Goldwyn School

Goldwyn-Brook School is the Folkestone satellite of Goldwyn and was established in September 2014. The facilities were purpose built as a Special School in 1963 and offer spacious accommodation on a pleasant site next to Radnor Park near the town centre.

Goldwyn-Brook has a roll of 35 and class sizes are small with seven in each year group. Students have the benefit of specialist rooms and resources for each subject area and access to two nearby Sports Centres for their PE lessons. The curriculum is broad and balanced with a mix of traditional National Curriculum subjects alongside Vocational Courses including Hairdressing, Construction and Motor Vehicle Technology for which Key Stage 4 students travel across to Ashford to access the excellent workshops at Goldwyn College. Students in Year 9 are able to complete the Challenger Troop programme and the school offers a range of enrichment activities including the opportunity to work with a Visiting Musician.

Goldwyn-Brook has a high staffing ratio and the well qualified and experienced team of Teachers, Teaching Assistants and Pastoral Managers work closely with students to support their learning and welfare needs. The school also has its own Counsellor and the pastoral structure consists of four vertical Tutor Groups each with its own staff team. The whole school joins together for a daily morning Assembly and lunch served in the Dining Hall which underlines our ethos as a small and tightly-knit community where each individual makes a unique and valued contribution.
