Education & Learning
The learning experience Bredon School offers helps every pupil to develop their character, strength and talents. We provide an exciting, supportive and friendly learning environment in which children can gain confidence in their ability and thrive in their studies from Key Stage right through until the end of Sixth Form.
As our pupils move through the school, they have the opportunity to mix traditional GCSE and A Level subjects with BTECs, allowing every pupil the opportunity to flourish and progress to university, further education, an apprenticeship or by directly entering the world of work.
In January 2019, the Department for Education ranked Bredon School number 1 out of 4434 schools in England for ‘Value Added’ for pupils aged 16 to 18 years. Our top ranking is based on Department of Education figures which show how much progress A Level pupils at Bredon made between the end of key stage 4 and the end of their A Level studies, compared to similar pupils across England.
Our latest Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) report reinforced our commitment to providing the very best level of provision and teaching for our pupils. In all areas, Bredon School was judged as ‘Excellent’ – the highest possible grade.
"The school’s individualised approach and extensive curriculum… ensure that every pupil can make progress and develop confidence and skills for the future"

Curricular and Extra-curricular Focus
We provide a fully mainstream curriculum of both academic and vocational subjects at GCSE and A Level, yet we fully understand that the way in which each child develops in these subjects is different. Some may learn best in a classroom setting, others will learn through exploration, and others will gain tremendously from the performing arts or from their growing sporting prowess.
Bredon has a long standing reputation for its specialist support for pupils with dyslexia and associated learning needs and we offer every child the necessary support and teaching to enable them to thrive with their studies.
