COVID-19: GUIDELINES FOR VISITORS -
As we continue to try to minimise the risk of COVID-19 in the Bryanston community, we ask for the support and understanding of our visitors.
Please read our COVID-19 guidelines for visitors here.
Bryanston is not bound by tradition. We are a forward-thinking and outward-looking school, proud of the reputation and calibre of our education, of what we stand for, of our family ethos, and of the ways in which our pupils go on to make their mark upon the world. One of our core values, kindness, is at the heart of everything we do, but ‘resourceful’, ‘independent’ and ‘creative’ are also words you will hear a lot at the School. Pupils are encouraged to think imaginatively and intelligently break convention.
At Bryanston, we expect everyone to play his or her part in the community, while remaining very much an individual. The two are complementary and we recognise the importance of having a broad range of pupils and rejoice in this diversity; the breadth of interests, talents and backgrounds of our pupils is a key part of what makes Bryanston what it is.
The School’s Guiding Principles are longstanding, timeless and core components of the education we provide: creativity, breadth of ambition, individuality, humanity & family and resilience.
Our aim is that Bryanstonians will leave us as well-rounded, optimistic individuals, having fulfilled their potential in a variety of areas at school, not least academically, ready to go out into the wider world, to lead happy and fulfilling lives and imbued with a sense of the duty of service. We believe a school can have no more joyful and important an ambition.
This website will give you a flavour of Bryanston, but please do come and visit. I look forward to meeting you.

Bryanston's one-to-one tutorial system is the jewel in the School's crown. Our new film explains the impact this has - academically, pastorally and socially - from the perspectives of parents, staff and the pupils themselves.
At Bryanston, every pupil receives an unrivalled level of individual attention and support. Pupils benefit from extensive one-to-one time with their personal tutor and, as they move up through the School, also with their subject teachers, 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.
Most families first visit the School as part of a small group on a Friday or Saturday morning. During the visit there will be a welcome from the Headmaster, a tour of the School by a pupil and an interactive session with a housemaster/housemistress to explore Bryanston's academic and pastoral structures. It is a fantastic opportunity to get to know the School better.
