Fulbrook School


At Fulbrook all children in Years 5 and 6 are taught by our primary team and, for the majority of their two-week timetable, their own class teacher. These pupils will have some of their lessons taught by subject specialist staff, such as PE, art and food technology.

From Year 7 onwards, all students are taught by subject specialist teachers. They benefit immensely from the expertise of French, art, music, technology, computing, humanities and PE specialist teaching.

Personal Development and Careers


At Fulbrook, we believe that homework should support teaching, learning and pupil progress, by supporting and extending the learning that takes place in the classroom during lesson time.

All homework is accessible through Arbor, our management information system. Arbor refers to homework as 'assignments'. Along with students, parents and carers have the opportunity to see what has been set and the deadlines. Arbor also provides the school to monitor the frequency and quality of homework set for all students.

To support completion of homework, the Library is available to all students from 3pm - 4pm, after school. Please see below the agreed rules with regards to accessing this opportunity:

  • This club is to be used for educational activities only, pre-set homework or independent research (this could include using the books available in the library). 

  • Support is available from the adults running the club.

  • Laptops and computers are available for students to use, but must be switched off and returned before leaving the club.

  • Students can leave at any time between 3pm and 4pm once homework or independent study has been completed. They need to exit via reception and follow pick up arrangements that have been agreed with their parents/carers.

  • Misuse of the club or poor behaviour will mean they will be asked to leave, and parents informed by the supervising staff.
