The Curriculum

Bryanston prides itself on the breadth and flexibility of its curriculum. Each pupil’s timetable is individually tailored to include one-to-one periods. Strong tutoring and state-of-the-art online assessment encourage pupils to develop independent learning while supporting progress at every stage. In the sixth form we offer A-levels and the IB.

Games & The Arts

Bryanston is renowned for the variety and sheer quality of its creative life. Creativity is encouraged in all pupils. In sport we offer opportunity and choice: many pupils excel at sports they may never previously have considered.

Pastoral Care

Every pupil has a one-to-one conversation with their tutor every week, which encompasses both the academic and the pastoral. There is an extensive network of support and a house system which avoids tribalism and encourages lifelong friendships.

University Places

One-to-one support from tutors and subject specialists ensures that pupils apply to courses best suited to their individual strengths and aspirations, at a range of universities including Oxbridge and the Russell Group, prestigious art foundation courses, as well as universities overseas. Nearly all pupils are placed in their first choice institution.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

Bryanston values creativity, independence of thinking and individual achievements. We delight in the variety of our pupils, and we will always pursue and celebrate excellence, in whatever form it takes.

Outstanding Characteristics

Every school will tell you it cares about the individual. Where Bryanston differs in practice is the time it allocates for pupils’ one-to-one contact with teachers. Over time, this support makes a significant impact academically, socially and pastorally. We send pupils on to the next stage of their education who are comfortable in adult company, and who know how to work successfully and independently.
