Additional Information

Brookes UK, formerly known as Cherry Trees, is an independent school framed in the beautiful countryside of Suffolk, just outside of Bury St Edmunds.

At Brookes we have a nurturing and caring ethos as well as a high ambition for every child to reach their full potential. We offer a unique, calming and supportive environment where pupils can create, explore, develop and learn.

Our Montessori ethos starts in our 'Outstanding' ISI rated Nursery and Reception Class facility, and from there it blends into the pastoral care of our older students.

We deliver a modern educational experience backed by teachers who are incredibly passionate and who truly care. With the children's wellbeing a priority we offer an exceptional alternative to mainstream schools, both state and independent.
