‘This is a good school’
Carrant Brook School was opened in September 1980. It was designed to cater for the educational needs of junior age children and can accommodate a two form entry of 240 children, with an admission number of 60 each year. Presently we have 6 classes and a NOR of approximately 152.
There are excellent teaching and learning facilities in the school, including a library and resource centre, computers in every class and a computer suite, extensive playing fields, a large gymnasium and assembly hall, and seven well equipped classrooms.
We have very close liaison and links with Northway Infant School from which the majority of our children transfer and with Tewkesbury Secondary School, which most children attend from the age of 11. The three schools run a range of joint initiatives both academic and pastoral.
