Welcome from the Head
It is a truism that education is what is left when you have forgotten what you were taught, but the key ingredients of a fine education do not change. At Bryanston they are about planting the roots of the child in the right soil, nurturing that child through the ups and downs of adolescence, feeding that child with brain, body and soul food, and encouraging them to be the person they can be.
Our aim is that Bryanstonians will leave as well-balanced 18-year-olds, ready to go out into the wider world, to lead happy and fulfilling lives and to contribute, positively and generously. We believe a school can have no more joyful, dynamic ambition.
We are delighted to announce that the Bryanston Governors have appointed Mark Mortimer to succeed Sarah Thomas as Head of Bryanston, with effect from 1 September 2019.
We provide every pupil with individual attention and support. The school's tailored approach means that pupils benefit from extensive one-to-one time with their tutor providing the academic and pastoral encouragement they need to achieve their full potential as individuals.
We believe pupils do best when they learn to relish every opportunity and discover their own individual talents and interests, exploring them to the best of their abilities. Pupils are encouraged to experience a wide range of academic subjects and extra-curricular activities, all of which helps them to discover areas where they can flourish and excel.
Education is not about moulding, nor are children end products. We believe that education is an exciting process, organic and ongoing; that pupils learn better actively, growing up in secure surroundings, than if passively taught; that to lead successful lives, at school and beyond, each needs to be prepared to give of his or her own talents and to value those of others.
