Cheerleading is one of the fastest growing sports in the country, with over 89,000 athletes across the UK. It is a high energy, team-based sport incorporating gymnastics, acrobatics and dance. 

At Brookes the cheerleading team has been going for 14 seasons where we have won 11 National Champion Titles and 3 Grand Champion Titles.

The cheerleading teams take on athletes of all abilities from beginners to experienced athletes, with 4 teams and 3 dance teams, we have a place for everyone.
