Our house is named after the engineering genius, Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Like him, we strive for excellence. Our core values – Excellence, Determination, Community and Empathy - are at the forefront of everything that we do in Brunel and we do this with passion. This passion led to us being the first double-champions of House Challenge and Sports Day shields!

We like to think of ourselves as a family; our little, red family of Brunel bears, who look out for one another whilst ensuring we incorporate our values into everyday school life. I couldn’t be happier to be the head of Brunel, as they make me proud every day! Brunel Bears!
