Our Motto

Preparing for life – Building on our strengths


Our Mission

To prepare every pupil for each stage of their life by providing a safe, supportive environment in which the strengths they possess can be built upon to achieve their full potential.


Our Ethos

At The Brier School we believe in putting our children at the heart of everything we do in order for them to achieve their full individual potential. For every child within our care, it is our sole endeavour to nurture and develop the skills they need to become independent, confident and successful in adult life, no matter where that life may lead. In parallel we strive to create an environment where pupils feel safe to express themselves, valued and happy in their learning. At The Brier School pupils and staff are proud to be part of something special where positive experiences are gained, lasting friendships are formed and fond memories are made and embraced.
