Headteacher's welcome

Glenbrook Primary School is a one form entry school based in Clapham Park, South London.  We joined Gipsy Hill Federation in 2015 and are on our journey to improving our Ofsted judgement.  


Glenbrook recognises the potential of every individual to achieve excellence. We strive to positively address underachievement and have very high expectations for all members of our school community. At Glenbrook we work hard to creatively remove barriers to achievement and raise self-esteem. We are determined to create a true culture of ‘learning for all’ through meaningful partnerships with the whole school community.

At Glenbrook everyone works to provide a welcoming, calm, happy and purposeful atmosphere within which, as members of a culturally rich community, we provide an education free from discrimination. We want our school to be characterised by openness and honesty. We believe in commitment, opportunity, respect and excellence.

We deliver a broad, balanced, relevant and futures-focussed curriculum in an optimum learning environment that is attractive, stimulating and informative.

From our stated aims, we work collectively to achieve the following objectives:

  • A happy, calm and nurturing school community

  • A highly stimulating learning environment

  • Mutual respect and understanding

  • An inclusive education

  • The making of informed and responsible choices about how we behave and the impact of this on others

  • Very high standards and expectations / intolerance of underachievement

  • An exciting, progressive and varied curriculum

  • Development of self-motivation, independence, positive attitudes and confidence

  • Providing positive and diverse role models

'The school’s broad, balanced and creative curriculum is expertly organised. The theme-based approach to learning is stimulating and children have exciting opportunities to learn beyond the classroom'.
