Memorial Garden for Mr Sukram

On behalf of FOBS members, the committee has agreed to fund the installation of a permanent plaque and other improvements to the memorial garden dedicated to Mr Sukram (Ainslie House). This will include replacing the wooden puzzle boards with permanent metal versions and a brass plaque mounted on a solid wooden base. The work should be completed shortly and you will be able to see the finished result in the garden behind the main reception block, where the planting scheme undertaken last year is now starting to mature and develop.

iPads for Drama department

We funded the purchase of 2 iPads for drama/dance department. These enable students to record performances and instantly watch them back on a large screen. They also allow the ability to pause video and highlight and annotate on top of the video in lessons through video analysis apps. These are then be distributed to students for their log books and for their revision notes. In future, it is hoped the iPads will be used to control the lighting equipment instead of a lighting desk, allowing technical students to use more up to date methods to control the lighting equipment.

Grant Success

The Committee are pleased to have secured a grant of £675 which will be used for the purchase of 5 new tablets for short observation feedback to support teaching and learning at Brookfield.


Thanks to your support, the Committee has been able to donate £500 to Maths department for the purchase of an online subscription for all students to the Mathswatch tool. This fantastic resource contains video clips for each topic of the GCSE syllabus along with accompanying worksheets and practice exercises, all with fully worked solutions. There is also a 'One Minute Maths' section containing short video clips for each topic, which will be useful for any last minute revision! Also included are revision timetables and schedules to assist students in organising their time to revise for the Maths GCSE exams, as well as clips and practice exercises for all of the Key Stage 3 topics too - so students in years 7 and 8 will also benefit.
