The Curriculum

Alongside high academic standards and expectations, we provide an emotionally and intellectually supportive environment, allowing pupils to develop independent, creative, and unbounded thinking. We encourage innovation in all areas of the curriculum, believing that imagination and boldness are as applicable in history and maths as in music or art.

Games & the Arts

Bryanston is committed to breadth and stretch within the academic and beyond. We encourage pupils to enhance their personal development and prepare for life beyond the School. Our extensive co-curricular programme provides many opportunities for pupils to find their passions.

Pastoral Care

Pastoral care sits at the heart of everything we do, and the Pastoral and the Academic integrate through our one-to-one tutorial system. Each pupil is carefully matched to their tutor and the relationship lasts for the duration of the pupil’s time at Bryanston. The tutor guides each pupil in becoming responsible for their own learning and discusses their wellbeing and progress. At all times, they act as each pupil’s champion and advocate.

University Places

Pupils apply to courses best suited to their strengths and aspirations, at a range of universities, prestigious music conservatoires and art foundation courses, as well as universities overseas.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

Get involved, make the most of your opportunities, support one another and be kind. Find your passions and follow them. Be curious, creative and ambitious, and intelligently challenge convention.

Outstanding Characteristics

Bryanston is different from other independent schools. Inspired by 90 years of innovative practice, our approach to education and our distinctive culture nurtures purposeful, curious and well-rounded individuals. We live by our values that reflect our commitment to individuality. This is evident in our people, along with a specific kind of creativity that inspires innovative thinking and challenge across all disciplines.
