John Floyd voted 'Best Prep School Head'

"A parent tells us that ‘the word “brilliant” does not do justice to John Floyd’, the ‘witty’ and ‘likeable’ Head. Boys arrive struggling with their confidence, and he ‘helps them to understand their strengths and why they should have faith in themselves’."

Bruern Abbey Senior School Parent 2023

"Bruern is wonderfully and successfully bespoke and tailors to each child with professionalism and amazing results. It’s a breath of fresh air in its unconventional approach and eccentric rituals. My child has benefited tremendously and quite literally turned his life around."

"This is a superb school, not only because of the unique help it gives dyslexics, but also because of its ethos and culture."

"A unique school with heart and soul. My son has grown in confidence and maturity since arriving at Bruern. A school which recognises, embraces and nurtures boys who have different brains! The school is in the business of getting the academics done but at the same time developing and nurturing fundamental life skills. Most importantly of all, my son is happy!"

"Bruern gives the boys a love of learning again, through excellent teaching strategies, taught by highly trained staff in a supportive and nurturing environment. Our son has made exceptional progress."

"Since starting at Bruern Abbey Seniors, my son’s happiness has been completely transformed. He now looks forward to returning every Monday, has a sense of self-respect, believes in his own academic ability and feels comfortable to ask for help."
