Education

Emmbrook is fortunate in having three schools within its boundaries, all of which have been rated as ‘GOOD’ schools in their most recent OFSTED assessments.  Together, these three schools can offer excellent education facilities for children from Early Years Foundation Stage to the completion of their sixth form studies.  Links to each of the school websites appear below.

Entertainment

The Wokingham Music Club, which hosts live music events, is based at the same premises as the Emmbrook Sports and Social Club at the junction of Lowther Road and Emmbrook Road.  There is a licensed bar on the premises.  Please refer to the club website for details of forthcoming gigs.


Joel Park Residents Association

Joel Park is the area of Wokingham that is our neighbour on our eastern border, the two districts being separated by the Emm Brook river itself.  The Emmbrook Residents Association and the Joel Park Residents Association work closely together on matters of common interest, especially in relation to planning matters.  We are also trying to develop a link for shared social activities.  Here is a link to the JPRA website.


Local Authority

The local authority that is responsible for the Emmbrook area is Wokingham Borough Council.

There is also a Wokingham Town Council, which has responsibilities relating to the central part of the town.
