Brook Primary School was established in 1872 on the corner of Brook Street and Camp Hill, the A491. In 1936 its current site was opened as Audnam Secondary School.
In the 1970s the secondary school moved to Buckpool - now The Wordsley School - and our school moved to its present home.
Having been a secondary school, the accommodation boasts larger classrooms and with an extensive modernisation and refurbishment programme now provides excellent facilities for early 21st century education.
Today's Brook Primary School also prides itself on providing high quality education and care for children of all abilities. This is endorsed by our April 2013 Ofsted Inspection grading us as a 'good school'.
