Fantastic Arts at Brookfield (FAB) is a distinctive and inspiring arts project which has been running at Brookfield since September 2009. The project is sponsored by the PTA and aims to deliver a wide range of memorable arts experiences, which will enrich children’s lives and raise standards of teaching, learning and creativity.
As a result of the school’s ongoing commitment to the arts, we have secured Arts Mark Gold and several film awards.
Our latest OFSTED report (June 2014) also endorsed our passion for the arts and creativity:
‘There are outstanding opportunities for pupils to excel in the arts.’
‘The school seeks out the expertise of many visitors who make learning exciting for the pupils and these learning opportunities are exceptional. The numerous educational visits, after-school clubs and special events contribute greatly to pupils’ achievement and their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Opportunities in the arts are outstanding and this is reflected in the school gaining Artsmark Gold Award.’
