About Bruern

Bruern Abbey, A Unique School


Bruern Abbey is a unique school, catering exclusively for boys aged 8 to 16 diagnosed with dyslexia, dyspraxia and other learning difficulties. Our beautiful grounds at our prep and senior schools provide the perfect setting for boys to thrive and engage in a plethora of opportunities beyond the classroom. Our highly skilled and passionate specialist staff, support the boys with their academic and pastoral needs; helping them develop techniques and skills to successfully manage their learning difficulties.

Bruern has for many years been the only prep 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. From September 2022 the school is extending this to preparation for GCSEs, through expanding our provision to open a senior school. Learning difficulties should not preclude academic success, and we believe that extending our offering will allow even more boys to benefit from Bruern's unique offering.

Bruern is a true gem of a school, with inspirational leadership from the entire leadership team, and a truly committed set of teachers. I feel our son is really thriving in this environment. I feel truly blessed to have found this school.
