A prep school education should be rigorous and challenging, but it must also be creative, vibrant and, above all, fun. At a time when schools so often surrender their individuality in the face of rigid testing and regulation, we feel passionately that children should be able to carry on doing the stuff that children ought to be doing for as long as they possibly can. For that reason, a Brandeston education remains every bit as diverse as it was when the school was established in its idyllic, rural haven nearly seventy years ago. From sports pitches to laboratories and from Art and Design to Music, Drama and Technology you’ll find children confidently expressing themselves and discovering new talents. They work hard but always enjoy their learning and they carry that passion with them for life. While we are understandably proud of our impressive academic record, we know that long term success is built on broader qualities and values. Well-being, resilience and citizenship feature highly amongst these. Brandeston is a happy, nurturing school where children feel valued and inspired. We celebrate difference and encourage pupils to communicate respectfully, to work well together and, above all, to care for those around them and the world beyond.
