Bradfield College

A leading coeducational, independent boarding school, Bradfield College is secure and self-contained, enabling young people to mature into caring, contributing and confident citizens. Its all-inclusive ethos embraces the extended ‘Bradfield family’, which includes pupils past and present and extensive links with the wider community. The modern college combines values and attributes essential to 21st century life with those of its founder, Thomas Stevens, who established St Andrew’s College in 1850. The chapel at the heart of the college is central to spiritual life, reflection and serenity. Alongside an excellent academic education all partake of the ‘Bradfield experience’, which permits each individual to find his or her special niche.

The classroom atmosphere engenders a love of learning for its own sake; the participatory culture ensures that expert and enthusiast alike thrive within the broad spectrum of extracurricular activities. Pastoral care is paramount; boys and girls move on to senior houses after Faulkner’s, a coeducational house in which all spend their first year at the college. Each house has a dedicated team of staff and every pupil benefits from the care of a housemaster or housemistress, a personal tutor and a matron. 

The superb facilities at Bradfield include modern teaching and learning environments within the beautiful brick-and-flint original buildings. There is a music school, sports complex with indoor swimming pool, a tennis centre and two floodlit all-weather pitches. Alongside these a new state-of-the-art science centre opened its doors to pupils and the local community in September 2010. 

Set in its own mediaeval village in 250 acres of beautiful Berkshire countryside the college enjoys exceptional playing fields, golf course and stunning views across the Pang valley. All this is within 40 minutes of Heathrow and an hour from central London. Admission to the college is at both 13+ and into the large and vibrant sixth form. Scholarships and exhibitions are available at both levels of entry.
