For those who are looking for property in the area and perhaps coming from a long distance, or seeking accommodation in the Emmbrook area for any reason, the 3-star rated Emmbrook Inn is centrally located.
Emmbrook is fortunate in having three schools within its boundaries. 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.
A new primary school has been built on Queens Road, as part of the Emmbrook Place development, and is to be run by the Keys Academy Trust. This new school, St Cecilia’s CoE Primary School, will offer 210 places. It was planned to open in Sep 2022, but Keys Academy have announced that it will not open as planned due to low level of interest. We are currently seeking to establish what will happen with the school buildings in the meantime and plans for future opening.
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 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.
The local authority that is responsible for the Emmbrook area is Wokingham Borough Council.
