Mere Brow may be a small school, but we are more than big enough to offer a high quality education, incorporating all the requirements of a modern curriculum and much more.
At Mere Brow children enjoy the opportunity to learn in a setting which, visitors to our school frequently tell us, feels like a school family.
Although the original part of our building opened as a school in 1847, constant refurbishment and new building means our children enjoy a modern, light and well-resourced environment. We have first class computing facilities, with an excellent tech/pupil ratio, large screens in every teaching room.
Our outdoor facilities are generous and secure and we have many additional strengths, including excellent music provision (all y5/6 learn to play brass instruments, for example), a range of extra-curricular opportunities, and a staff dedicated to doing their best for the benefit of your child.
If you haven’t visited us, why not call to make an appointment 01772 812689
You will be very welcome and pleasantly surprised by what we offer.

In Year application form
Changing School during the school year:
Our School is responsible for in year admissions as we are Voluntary Aided a form can be collected from the School Office or downloaded above.
The link below confirms the above.
Supplementary Information Forms (SIFs)
Voluntary aided and foundation schools usually have a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) which they may ask you to complete along with your application. These allow the school’s Governing Body to assess applications against certain criteria within their admission arrangements. It is not always necessary for parents to complete a SIF. If this is appropriate you will be given the option. It is not a legal requirement but the lack of a SIF may lower the priority of an application.
