Inside Scoop

A Parent's Perspective

I chose Bradfield because i had heard what a kind and well balanced school it was. The school facilities are fabulous and constantly being updated and improved and the village setting feels safe and is picturesque. 

I am about to send my fourth child to Bradfield and despite the fact that they all are very different personalities, somehow Bradfield seems to find and encourage the very best out of them.

Bradfield children have a quiet confidence about them – their social skills are strong and they are interesting young people to engage with. Bradfieldians i think are perceived as fun, decent, engaging people and therefore mix well with pupils from other schools. They have an increasing pride for their school, you only have to see the atmosphere at the big matches to see how much they support one another.
