Prep School Life

What's similar…

Bruern places great emphasis on experiencing all that prep school life has to offer ; specialist teaching should not mean missing out on all the fun. At Bruern we make every effort, despite our somewhat diminutive size, to give the boys an action-packed time – be it musical, theatrical, cultural or sporting.

And what's different…

Bruern has a few fundamental differences, which allow our boys to succeed at Common Entrance and be ready for life beyond.

  • We have twice as many English and Maths lessons as a standard prep school would for all our Junior School boys, and there are two teachers in each class for these key subjects.
  • Reading is taught as a distinct curriculum subject.
  • Lap-tops are used in most lessons.
  • All classes have ten pupils or fewer – allowing boys more individual attention in class.
