Welcome to Bredon School
Bredon School offers each and every pupil a magnificent range of traditional and vocational qualifications in an outstanding pastoral environment which ensures that each pupil thrives as an individual. Children are taught in small classes where individuality is both nurtured and celebrated.
Our highly qualified, passionate staff strive to secure a love of learning in each of our pupils enabling them to realise their full potential. Thinking differently in our approach to teaching and learning for over 50 years, the motto of our Founder, Colonel Sharp ‘the journey is as important as the destination’ still stands today.
We support, encourage and inspire pupils to achieve throughout their journey with us both in and beyond the classroom. Offering a broad spectrum of subjects, activities, opportunities and experiences we are able to build our pupils confidence and self belief. This is just one of the reasons why we are judged as ‘Excellent’ by the Independent School Inspectorate (ISI) for both academic achievement and all-round personal development.
Our diverse curriculum and outstanding co-curricular provision underpinned by superb pastoral care and family ethos prepare confident and capable young men and women who are equipped with the attributes to flourish both personally and professionally on the journey beyond our school gates.
They say that seeing is believing and so I warmly invite you to come and visit us, experience a snapshot of Bredon in action, have the opportunity to speak to staff, meet some of our pupils and discover what makes Bredon different.
