Who will it suit?
Pupils and parents who are not concerned about where a school sits in “performance league tables”, but who value a deeply caring environment for a youngster who might struggle in a highly academic environment. Ideal for those who want to pursue engineering, agriculture, the hospitality industry, product design and art, rather than a purely academic route. There is a wide cultural mix amongst the 192 students. Class sizes are small. London Heathrow is only 2 hours away and Birmingham 45 minutes.
Most move towards vocational colleges or to study practical courses at specialist universities. Apprenticeships also possible.
The 100 boarders are in small dorms made extremely welcoming by the pupils themselves. The school often offers short “trial” periods – a few weeks to a full term or two – and provides speech therapy and language help where needed. For those who want, there are opportunities to help out on the school farm, ride the horses, and care for the machinery and cattle. Sports are mainly minority activities and unusual for schools, such as clay-pigeon shooting. Headmaster has a strong understanding of the learning needs of his pupils.
Set in beautiful countryside with a farm, which breeds pigs, sheep and cattle as an integral aspect of the education for those who want it. Bredon specialises in assisting pupils with learning difficulties, such as dyslexia, dispraxia and dyscalculia. (The school, however, does not accept pupils with behavioural difficulties). It also offers a range of other vocational approaches, as well as the standard UK GCSE, B-Tech and A-Level curriculums for its non-selective intake.
