Welcome to Bruern Abbey

Located just over an hour from London and 15 minutes from Oxford, Bruern Abbey is the only preparatory school in the country to have as its main purpose the preparation of boys with learning difficulties for Common Entrance and other entrance examinations to mainstream independent senior schools. Learning difficulties should not preclude academic success.

Covid-19 (Coronavirus) Update

Following government advice for all UK schools, the school was closed for pupils from Monday 23rd March 2020, but re-opened for pupils in Year 6 at the start of June. The rest of our year groups continue to be educated through our Google Classrooms. For more information please visit our Covid-19 information page.
