International Students

Home to international pupils from over 15 different countries, Bredon School offers a traditional English boarding school education, a diverse academic provision and an exciting schedule of extra-curricular activities, trips and excursions.

Bredon School not only provides international pupils with language skills for life but prepares them for life beyond our school gates. Our English as a Foreign Language (EAL) department strives to prepare pupils for success in appropriate English qualifications, be that through IGCSE, KEY, PET, FCE or IELTS examinations whilst providing a programme of support for pupils working towards their GCSE or A Level examinations.

As a small independent school, Bredon is able to provide flexible timetabling structured according to the needs of the individual, learning styles and cultural backgrounds. Tuition is in small groups and, when necessary, one-to-one support lessons.

INTERNATIONAL APPLICATION PROCESS

In order to apply for a place at Bredon School, prospective pupils are asked to submit copies of their most recent school reports together with any specialist assessments, for example an Educational Psychologist report, if appropriate. Reports are subsequently reviewed by our Admissions panel. Prospective pupils with additional needs such as dyslexia will also be reviewed by our Director of Learning Development who will confirm that any specific learning requirements your child has can be supported at Bredon. 

Once approved by the Admissions panel, prospective pupils will be invited to complete a formal application form and send this with the registration fee to the School. Upon confirmation of receipt pupils will be invited to attend an interview with the Headmaster via Google Meet. Offers will be made following a successful interview.

A deposit is required on entry to Bredon School. For non-EU nationals the deposit is £7,250, which is refundable on settling of the final account. For further fee details please click here.
