Welcome from the CEO
Evolve Trust CEO - Claire-Marie Cuthbert

I am delighted to welcome you to The Bramble Academy as part of The Evolve Trust. We are proud to be a values-driven organisation with an unwavering commitment to “to open minds, creating opportunities for all to believe in themselves, achieve their potential and develop the skills needed to succeed and enjoy life”. Our core values of Ambition, Integrity, Inclusivity, Resilience and Endeavour underpin everything we do.

The Bramble Academy is a vibrant school where children are enthusiastic and motivated to achieve endless possibilities. The children are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure that they are happy, confident and that the opportunities that are provided for them are relevant to their needs both now and in the future. There is something very special about Bramble Academy and we are incredibly proud of our unique children, supportive parents and hard working staff.

We believe that children should be curious about their learning. Through our engaging curriculum, we ensure that children can foster a passion for learning that will help to develop high aspirations and a lifetime of memories. We believe in ensuring that children receive a well-rounded curriculum; where individual talents can be spotted and nurtured to ensure that all children experience success and reach their full potential We encourage all our children to achieve the best they can across every area of school, from the rich and broad curriculum to the wide range of extra-curricular and enrichment activities.

The school has a dedicated team that works hard to reach high standards in everything we do and this is further embedded through our successful relationships with parents, the local community and the other schools within the Evolve Trust family. We firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school and regard you as an active partner in your child's education and value your interest and support.

I hope that this website will give you as much information as possible about our school, the staff and the many activities that our children enjoy through our curriculum and enrichment programme. It will grow over time as we add more information, but it can never replace the first-hand experience of coming to visit us.Our children are wonderful ambassadors, so if you would like to know more about our school family then please contact the school and our children and I would be delighted to show you around and introduce you to everyone who makes Bramble such a special and incredible place.

Welcome from Mr Lucas - Executive Headteacher

Welcome to the Bramble Academy. I am exceptionally proud to be the Executive Head Teacher of The Bramble Academy in what is an exciting stage in the Academy’s development. At Evolve, we believe that an outstanding education develops our students academically, socially and morally, giving them the knowledge and skills to be successful during this and the next stage of the education and development. We also feel it is important for our young people to develop and progress outside of the classroom and we offer a wide range of enrichment and extra-curricular opportunities to harness our pupil’s potential.

We are ambitious about all that we do and focus our work on improving the academic attainment of all our students. The Bramble Academy is fortunate to have good facilities, supportive and skilled staff, motivated students and supportive parents and I look forward immensely in developing this partnership with you further this year.

We are proud to be supported by the Evolve Trust and we believe that this partnerships give us the opportunity to continue our improvements and for the school to be recognised both locally and nationally as a truly ‘good’ and then ‘outstanding’ school over time.

We demand excellence and we are on a journey to this but the foundations of this are fundamentally linked to our Core Values and how we behave in all aspects of school life. Our values and associated behaviours are:

  • AMBITION: Striving for the highest personal achievement
  • INTEGRITY: The moral courage to be sincere, reliable and trustworthy at all times
  • INCLUSIVITY: Together we create a stronger community
  • ENDEAVOUR: The best preparation for tomorrow is doing the best today
  • RESILIENCE: Take on challenges, learn and thrive

We believe that primary education represents a major stage in the life of each young person and so we aim to work together with parents, carers, agencies and the local community to support our young people; enabling them to develop and grow within this community and in building together a real sense of identity within The Bramble Academy and the Mansfield Woodhouse area.

We recognise the equal value of each individual young person and we aim to provide the best possible opportunities for your child. We look forward to welcoming you to our community and I look forward to meeting you in person this year.
