A crucial part of the life and soul of the schools, we welcome our parents’ involvement and support. If you’re new to the schools, do get in touch and we’ll be happy to put you in contact with other parents in your area or year group, who will be delighted to invite you to social events and help you and your child feel at home as soon as possible.
There are many benefits to being part of the Highfield & Brookham parents’ community. These may be as simple as enjoying our beautiful school grounds and woodlands for dog walking with your friends, or joining the ‘Couch to 5K’ Running Club, or the HighBrook Professional Networking Group.
Some of our parents enjoy taking a more formal role perhaps participating in Fundraising Committees, becoming an Ambassador for our Bursaries Programme or as a Parent Association Rep. No matter how much you wish, or are able to be involved, we offer a supportive friendly community for all Highfield & Brookham families.
Handy information for parents - at your fingertips!
Friends of Brookham (FOB) is the name of Brookham's Parent/Teacher Committee. Each class at Brookham has a volunteer parent as their Class Rep, and these Reps, together with the Headteacher and another staff member, make up the Friends of Brookham Committee. FOB is nearly as old as Brookham and has a good working relationship with the school. As well as organising social events, they also discuss varied matters relating to the children, staffing, or any issues, questions, problems or plaudits raised by parents. If you would like to contact your Class Rep, their details are provided on the Parent Password Protected Area. If you're a new parent and you'd like to be introduced to your Rep please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Highfield Parents’ Association is a valued sounding board for parents and the school. Our group consists of one parent representative for girls, and one for boys, from each year in the school, together with the Headteacher and another staff member. Year Reps are a focus and a channel for ideas, concerns, and questions about all aspects of Highfield. They may raise these directly or through the Association's regular meetings. You can talk to your Rep, or any other Rep at any time. If you’re not sure who to contact for your year group, please email email@example.com.
