The Emmbrook School is a co-educational comprehensive school located in Emmbrook, Wokingham, Berkshire, England, for students between 11 and 18 years of age. There are around 1,378 students at the school, with nearly 200 in the Sixth Form.

Between the 14 and 16 March 2017, the school was inspected by Ofsted, who rated it as "Good".[1]

The school opened a new £2 million English block in 2015[2] and a new Maths building was opened in 2017.[3]

The management team consist of the Headteacher (Paul O'Neill), Senior Deputy Headteacher (Russell Bond) and Deputy Headteacher (Nick McSweeney).

The Houses[edit]

The four houses of the school are:

     Venus

     Jupiter

     Mercury

     Saturn

Students represent their house in sporting events, including football, cricket, netball, rugby and rounders, as well as during sports day. Other competitions contribute points to the house competition, including dance, music and the merits collected by Key Stage Three pupils.

Tirabad[edit]

The Emmbrook School, along with Maiden Erlegh and Charters School,[4] co-owns an outdoor education residential centre located in the Welsh village of Tirabad, Powys. Students from years 7-10 and the Sixth Form have the opportunity to spend a week at the centre once a year. The centre's activities are climbing, sailing, canoeing, caving, orienteering, environmental and field studies.

Sixth Form students from the three trust schools (Emmbrook, Maiden Erlegh and Charters) jointly support the annual New Futures trip, in which students with disabilities travel to Tirabad. These volunteer students raise funds through charity work and then attend the trip to provide support for the younger children.
