The majority of our students are local, coming from a number of different housing estates and we enjoy positive links with primary schools in the area. Brakenhale opened in 1958, and was known at that time as Borough Green City Secondary School. The school records show that the initial school roll, on 7th January 1958, was 266. The oldest of these students was born in September 1942, and the youngest in July 1946. In January 2020 Brakenhale moved into its new building at the same location in Rectory Lane.
